Baby's Breath-Love it or Hate it?

Baby's Breath. The very word conjures up unpleasant images for some folks.
True, over the years, it became a tired staple in every Dozen Rose arrangement,
seemingly tossed in at the last minute, a "cheap filler".

Fast forward to 2011.
No longer 'cheap', no longer simply an afterthought, Baby's Breath, or, let's call it by it's true name "Gypsophila" , is experiencing a rebirth of sorts. Brides especially may be looking for a true romantic touch for their bouquets, and "Gyp" can add that as no other accent flower can.

There are now several different varieties available as well.
Some with petite florets, others give a fluffy mini-snowball effect.
Aren't these filled buckets lovely?

Look how fabulous "Gyp" can be on it's own!

So, while I'm not advocating the return of Baby's Breath
as the be-all and end-all of filler flowers,
I do think it's time to turn it's use upside down...
and give it the presence it deserves!

Personally, I've always had a soft spot for baby's breath, with all its delicate sweetness! So glad it's finally coming into its own. :-)
