Happy Halloween, and Happy Floral Friday! Today’s blog is based off of the flower with the nickname Love-in-a-Mist. Commonly call Nigella, this beautiful flower starts off as interesting puffs, which open into rich toned straw-flower like blossoms, and change into equally attractive seed pod. This whimsical flower is best known for its vivid blue blossom, but can also be found in purples, pinks and whites.
Want to add a touch of blue to your floral? Natural blue Nigella’s would be the perfect flower to pick for that extra dash of color. Finding the natural blue is few and far between, so it’s definitely a treat when using them in any flower arrangement.
It’s becoming a trend we are seeing more and more of. Incorporating flowers into your up-do will definitely make some heads turn. I love this combination of Scabiousa, Nigella, Brodiaea, Anemone and Trembling Grasses. The combination of natural flowers is a beautiful natural look.
