I wish I had a green thumb. One of my dearest friends is a horticulturist and I envy her gardening skills. She has the most fabulous flowers, tastiest tomatoes, and prettiest peppers around. I LOVE eating over when she cooks, especially in late summer because her menu consists of the freshest and most beautiful ingredients. That’s right… BEAUTIFUL!!
Have you ever noticed how lovely fruits and veggies actually are? I think they are gorgeous,which got me thinking…. wouldn’t a garden wedding be pretty. Now, I don’t mean “held in a garden” I mean “designed from the garden”. A wedding consisting of fruits, veggies, herbs & spices! It’s a delicious idea, dontcha think??
Let’s get started with some AMAZING food bouquets by Green Wedding Shoes.
What a gorgeous bouquet of baby purple artichokes, green ranunculuses, green & purple wheat, a green moss flower (Dianthus Green Ball) and some seed pods.
Isn’t this carrot bouquet lovely? It’s a mix of orange/purple carrots, dark purple kale, green wheat, dianthus green ball and a sun star flower.
This kale bouquet is soooo simple but I LOVE it.

Aren’t the colors in this veggie bouquet gorgeous? I spy carrots, mushrooms, onions, radishes, ginger and what I’m pretty sure are garlic cloves. AND perhaps my favorite part, the stem made of silver spoons. Oooo… and how cute is that carrot boutonniere? via Delightully Engaged
