|simple + pretty|
One of my favorite lovely little details for inclusion in floral arrangements is the silver brunia (also known as brunia laevis). Silver brunia plays a supporting role to provide a subtle contrast and texture, and makes the other flowers "pop" by adding a muted gray hue.
Although flowering time is typically between August and February, you can definitely obtain this accent throughout the year if you look hard enough, and as such an inexpensive addition, it is so worth it!

Here's a lovely ring photo set amidst ranunculus and silver brunia.
And lastly, look how well they preserve! (My wedding bouquet, 3 months later) :)
I love how just a touch of gray can add such a pretty accent to each bouquet, and on their own with just a bit of greenery, could be a perfect boutonniere.
