Turkey Day Countdown: Cabbage & Kale

I love to include the unusual whenever possible in flower arrangements.  From fruits to feathers to pebbles, these non-flowers are quite visually appealing when used as part of an arrangement.  Cabbage and kale are two of my absolute favorite things to include in cold weather bouquets.  You might remember this arrangement I did for Thanksgiving last year that was made up of feathers and flowers and ornamental kale.

    Sarah – where do you suggest getting the cabbage for an arrangement? Any place in Gtown?

  2. Hi Jackie-

    I’d start by emailing Susan at Heavenly Hydrangea’s… she’s great and always has beautiful flowers.
