DIY Edible Wedding Flowers

Helping out with my sisters wedding featured a visit to Brittany Hollow Farms U-Pick flower field. For my own wedding I visited the Flower District over in the West here in New York City. A good number of those flowers would have been imported the ones we picked for my sister were, without a doubt, locally grown and in season.

We gathered mostly zinnias which were prime for the picking as were the teddy bear sunflowers and celosia But tucked low to the ground in another row was purple basil and it proved to be irresistible. The dark purple provided a lovely contast to all the bright pink orange, and yellow zinnias but it was the heady scent that made the resulting flower arrangements truly come alive.

But that wasn't the only edible plant we picked: Only later did I learn that celosia leaves are edible as well. As it were, it was particularly appropriate to use the celosia in the arrangements given that my sister and her husband met in Africa, where the plant originated and is consumed.People gather for National Night Out

The takeaway is that floral arrangements of any sort, not just for weddings, can easily feature edible components. They can be as big and bold as pomegranates and kale or more subtle and perhaps a little more traditional as bee balm and lavender. In other words, you have options!What edibles are you using in your floral arrangements
