Do you know the three B's of Holiday Centerpieces and Decor? Branches, Berries, and Baby's Breath! Or is that four Bs?! Either way, all three are great for adding line, dimension, and texture to your arrangements. Going beyond just flowers and thinking about your design in greater detail will elevate your event to the next level. Adding intriguing pieces and extra elements will make your day even more memorable. Let's take a closer look at each one.
Using branches in wedding or event decor is nothing new. How you use them and where is what will separate you from the rest of the crowd. If you have an arch with branches like the picture above, try adding the same style of branches into your bouquet with similar flowers and greenery.
In bouquets and centerpieces, branches create height and drama. You can attach flowers, hang jewels. and add other design elements to make your overall event look more cohesive. You could even spray your branches with floral spray for a touch of color or shimmer. Try black for a sleek or modern wedding. Gold and silver would look stunning for the holidays. Or leave natural for rustic, vintage, and garden weddings.

Add Berries for Texture and Color. They act as a popular filler and are great for bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces. Bunch together a few stems to create clusters of texture. Available in a range of colors and varieties, berries are perfect any time of year.

People often think of Baby's Breath as a filler flower, but this small yet mighty variety can pack a punch. It can make quite an elegant statement all on its own. Think soft cloud arrangements, perfect for a Winter Wonderland! Tiny, white, popcorn-like blooms cover the stems of this flower, creating fluffy and full texture. It can fit any theme, from vintage to modern, rustic to garden.
Spread baby's breath throughout your event in centerpieces, aisle decor, cake displays, and hanging installations to create cohesion. Your aesthetic will be evident from beginning to end!
