Artichokes are delicious and definitely one of our family’s favorites. But have you ever thought about using this yummy veggie as part of your wedding centerpieces or even in your bouquet? Artichokes can be used to accent a lovely arrangement or sculpted to be a clever candle holder or container for flowers. In our opinion, they should be used sparingly and as part of an overall design otherwise you could have your centerpieces looking more like an appetizer for your guests. And one or a few tiny artichokes can add to a bouquet just like succulents, but if done improperly you will have a big eyesore for a bouquet. When searching for inspiration we did come across photos of artichokes used with asparagus…not really feeling that one because it looks more like part of a buffet to snack on and not exactly elegant wedding decor. As we have said before in previous posts…take your time to consider your decorations and think how you will feel looking back on your wedding years down the road or maybe just a week later. What is hot, trendy and the latest fad to hit the wedding industry may look great on today’s blogs; but it may not look so great in 30 years when you are sitting down with your kids and they say wow what was that! Artichokes can be used in modern Destin weddings in a very beautiful and timeless way. Consult with your Destin wedding planners on how best to incorporate something unique into your wedding centerpieces.
