One of My Favorite Non Floral Items: Cotton

So my new obsession is decorating with items that are not your traditional flowers (not that I don't love flowers!) but there are fun ways to incorporate other items into your decor to give more depth and dimension to the overall look of your event.  Now this might be more interesting for a fall or winter wedding since it does give a heavy look even when combined with flowers. But if used correctly, you can certainly bring rustic and southern to the forefront of your design!

The pros to cotton: It lasts FOREVER! You don't have to worry about wilting flowers and they make memorable and creative keepsakes and it can be dressed up or dressed down. Meaning you can use it standing alone (as pictured strung) or mixed with flowers.image  image image
