I'm a huge fan of anything that can be reused, re-purposed, or recycled. Now, I can't say I live a die-hard green lifestyle. Let's just say I make a conscious effort by taking little measures here and there to keep mother earth happy. When it comes to my floral arrangements, I avoid the use of any toxic or harmful chemicals, mostly use vases that are either found or recycled, and try to stick with organic or locally grown flowers. I really appreciate and applaud others who go the extra mile and embrace every opportunity to be green.

I'm particularly loving this whole eco-chic movement going on now in fashion, interiors, and of course in weddings. One of the biggest trends I've been following are bouquets created out of unexpected items and found objects. My latest obsession? These brooch bouquets! How gorgeous are these? Amanda Heer of Fantasy Floral Designs creates these wonderful works of art that will never wilt and will surely be appreciated for years to come. I can just imagine someone passing one on to a daughter or having it displayed on a nightstand or dresser. To make it more special, it can include some family heirlooms. What a great way to revive an old collection into something unique and extremely fresh! It's the best complement to a vintage or modern bride's ensemble. Truly innovative and tres chic!
