Friday Floral – Queen Anne’s Lace

The wild carrot! The taproot of the Queen Anne’s Lace is actually a carrot and is where the first species of the carrot we all eat today originated from. However, it is now more popularly used as a lovely addition to a wedding arrangement and has become one of the most used in my opinion! Now that you know a little something new about this beautiful flower here are some of my favorite ways to incorporate them into your bouquet or flower arrangement below.

The stem of this plant can grow up to 4′ tall! Although you probably won’t receive them that tall from the florist they are still significantly long and you can either trim them down or keep them long to flow out of your bouquet.

Here is a closer look at the flower to show the flat topped cluster of flowers on the top.

This flower blooms from May-Oct so they are perfect for your summer or early fall wedding!

In my opinion I love this lace as an accent to a colorful bouquet due to the fact there is also a vibrant green stem that peaks through.

Just as equally beautiful the almost all white bouquet has a different twist when you add the original detail of the Queen Anne’s Lace.

For small cocktail arrangements this flower can either stand on its own or with small colorful accents.

The combination of small variations of vases on the table has such a natural elegance to it.

Whether going for a more natural vibe or mountain elegance this flower has a unique design that cannot be matched!

Queen Anne’s Lace is truly one of my favorites due to the fact that it can be used in many wedding styles. From rustic to mountain elegance to formal. This flower can replace babys breath in my opinion because it adds greater detail and covers similar surface area in an arrangement. Try discussing this flower with your florist the next time you go in!
