One of my favorite ingredients to cook with and to decorate with is Sage! The leaves can sometimes resemble lambs ear or even dusty miller but Sage can bring a delightful aroma to your wedding reception that others simply cannot. Below are a few ways to incorporate this flower into many color pallets and details. I adore the floral combinations for both of these bouquets.
The one on the right has Celosia which looks like a feather and another variety that is popular is the cockscomb.Filling the bottom layer of your bouquet with sage leaves can fill any gaps that may have formed during the process. Sage has it’s own blue/gray tone which allows you the opportunity to still use other greenery throughout your bouquet without it becoming overwhelming. The vessel that is used on your wedding table can depict the type of flower selection that you need to keep true to your wedding theme.
Adding sage can create a soft tone to your arrangements which can incorporate a sense of elegance throughout your reception. By keeping the stems on the sage allows for you to create fun other pieces with sage including a boutonniere or even a chair swag.There are many delicious cocktail creations that you can use to incorporate this herb all throughout your day. This would be fun to have for signature cocktails (Pear Ginger Sage Spritz and a Sage Blackberry Old Fashion). Sage can be used in so many ways throughout your big day. If the flower isn’t available to you again try using lams ear elephants ear, or dusty miller to give a similar look to your arrangement. I think this is a great look for any time of year so be sure to ask your florist about pricing and availability!
