Did you know the Carnation is one of January’s birth flower? I found out not too long ago that it symbolizes love and admiration.
Before becoming a florist, I always thought Carnations were old-fashioned. One day, early on my flower journey, I came across some gorgeous dusty coloured Carnations and that was the beginning of our love story.
Last week, someone asked me what was my favourite flower and I can’t believe I didn’t name the Carnation. It’s in almost every wedding and wrapped bouquets I design. They last forever and can now be found in some gorgeous tones.
I love seeing the reactions from people when they found out that “pretty ruffled flower” is a Carnation. If you’re still frowning, you wait.
I’ll make a Carnation lover out of you
