As in Gypsophila, otherwise known as Baby’s Breath. As in those tiny delicate white flowers that seem to last an age and never fail to make a significant impact whether used in dainty doses or frothy bundles.
I love it. Our brides love it. And so it seems does the world of W-day. So much so, Triangle Nursery have written a blog on it with the Top 9 Ways you can use Gypsophila for an Upcoming Wedding or Event!
For bouquets, there are the two obvious options here, 100% Gypsophila or a mixture of other flower varieties to add an exquisite edge. The former option, the 100% reminds me of a pretty ‘floral cloud’.
Or alternatively, if you are looking for a more sumptuous option for your bouquet, opt for the white stuff for your best girls. How can you resist?
Or of course, add a subtle hint of Gypsophila to your bouquet and your maids with a combination of your other flower varieties to match your colour scheme.
Just before we move on to some ultra-cute flower girl ideas, you might be interested in taking a look at dyed options. If you are looking for that pop of colour with an ethereal edge, take a look at our dyed gyp, available in cooper, gold, silver, cerise, blue, yellow, red, green, you name it we’ve got it!

(2) Flower Girls
There is nothing cuter than a flower girl with a gyp flower crown, wand or heart finished with luscious satin ribbon. The perfect accessory for your whimsical fairy tale wedding or event..
Top Tip: For little ones especially, using wands, baskets or a heart with a ribbon attached is much easier for them to hold than a traditional bouquet.
(3) Hair Flowers
Just a simple addition of gyp to you and your maids hair can create beautiful, natural head pieces with a bohemian or festival flavour.

(5) Pew Ends
For your decor, gypsophila is very versatile and cost effective! If you are thinking how you could use gypsophila to decorate the ceremony, why not add a simple bunch of gyp on your pew ends, tied with lace, colour-scheme ribbon or hung over the back of a chair in a glass bottle or jam jar:

(6) Table Arrangements
For your reception pretty much anything goes, especially if you are going for something relaxed and informal. Depending on your colour scheme, and what style/ theme is, will depend on how to use the gypsophila in your table centres..
From extravagant, wow table centres to a combination of dainty, jam jars, glassware or teacups, gypsophila can pretty much suits any style.

One thing is for sure now, greenery is most certainly hot this year. If you are creating a garland to be laid across your tables, draped across your table plan or beams to add colour and charm to the venue, a great accompaniment is gyp. Green + white work wonders together, they are pretty & cost effective, where can you go wrong?
