Inspiration #63: In-Carnations


San Diego Budget Bride, Alicia, inspired today's post since she's lamenting her DIY carnation centerpieces. Above is a photo of a dinner San Francisco Opera hosted onstage at the War Memorial Opera House inspired by the new opera, Doctor Atomic. My event design mentor, Karman Pave of Special K Events (and also the Special Events Director at SF Opera), directed the floral designer to create pom-poms of white carnations that rested on black flower pots. It was a very dramatic and modern look.

Here's a couple more from the Hostess with the Mostess blog:
 
And then another from Country Living:


Here's more carnation yumminess from So You're Engayged:

I know some people tend to think of carnations as low-quality flowers, but those examples look absolutely beautiful!
