#300: a self-sufficient flower.


from a lucky orchid wedding.

not really sure what that tall stem of a flower is but just 4 of those on that table makes a huge statement.

i kinda like it. a lot.

Love it! They do make a big statement. And what a great cost-saving option!

It looks like an allium :)

allium, it's an onion and it does give an onion odor. should use it only if you have a well ventilated venue or if it's outdoors. i love it too tho!

I think these are fabulous! Because the allium has a skinny stem, you can easily talk to the person across the table from you with out having to lean one way or the other.

i echo madelyn... i love tall centerpieces but hate that you can't talk to the person across the table. this is perfect!

Gorgeous use of globe alliums! And if you really love them, try out the odor first. I personally don't think it's that bad--it's certainly not as if you're chopping onions at your dinner table. I think it's just kind of herbal and earthy. But then...I'm a huge onion lover!

Also, I grow a ton of these in my garden. Very expensive bulbs, but they reproduce like crazy, and just a few make a huge impact just as they do on your table. And they don't take up much room in the garden either!
