I’ve come to notice that the lovely little details are just that: they play a supporting role in the big day; the things that aren’t always noticed at first but are crucial in bringing your vision to life. Today’s Floral Spotlight focuses on one of my favorite unsung heroes in florals: the lovely Dusty Miller.

Dusty miller {otherwise known as Centaurea cineraria, the Velvet Centaurea} is the perfect accent to bring on a silvery-green color to your bouquet or centerpieces, and is readily available in Spring to fall in cold-winter regions and all year in warm-winter climates.  Long story short: your florist should have no problem finding it year-round {and for an affordable price}!

Here’s today’s roundup (rather photo-heavy because there are just so many inspirational pics to choose from!):

And lets not forget my favorite detail: the boutonnières!

This one was on my inspiration board for our wedding!

Speaking of… here’s Pat’s bout:

See what I mean?  They play the role in such a tiny detail, but when included, really make the other colors “pop” around them!

Happy Monday!

    I love the texture of dusty miller. You reminded me that I forgot to ask for them in my bouquet.

    Have you been reading my mind? I've noticed this popping up in a ton of beautiful bouquets and I've been wondering what its called. Great picks!

    Every time I find a bouquet with dusty miller in it I fall in love but then I keep forgetting what it's called! Love all of these, esp the one with the lovely stripped ribbon and the one under that. Lovely finds. <3 Have a great Monday!

    I love that this plant is silver. Makes white Christmas wedding bouquets magical and by the look of your research you did for us–makes a lot of bouquets and boutonnieres magical!
