How to Decorate with Carnations

                                                                     
The flower ‘Carnation’ wasderived from Greek words that literally mean ‘Heavenly Flowers’.

There are a plethora of reasons to love Carnations, as one of Bangalore’s prominent event planners we at Avenues Weddings have listed a number of ways you can enjoy these sensational beauties! These underrated yet gorgeous flowers are sturdy and last long, very long which makes them perfect (in my honest opinion) for wedding décor,baby showers, bouquets, wreaths, to splash some colour at home or even stunning flower crowns.


Flowers have the influence to create an exceptionally romantic ambiance like no other. Although not everyone has the budget to fill up the entire wedding venue or party with fresh flowers, you can still create a lush, flower-filled look using Carnations.


Here’s some ways I personally think these flowers can be used.

1. What I love about Carnations is the many colours they are available in which makes them versatile while using for decorations.

     2.  Ombre curtain of Carnations. What’s not to love? Subtle, simple, can be used as a perfect backdrop for wedding décor, be it a photo booth or just an entry. Take your vows in front of this minimalistic drape, use it as a phoolkachaadar for your entry! Tell me what you like about it?

     3.    One of my favourite ways to use Carnation, tie it up with a simple ribbon to make it a lovely bouquet. Use it in a vase or simply to gift!

   4.    Who say’s Carnations cannot be used in an Indian Setting? Ghungru + Carnations = a lovely back drop for a mehendi set up!

   5.    A simple yet lovely idea from my personal favourite brand, Good Earth! A quick way to spruce up a boring corner at home! Use a vintage vase or a tea kettle to place the Carnations.
