Bouquets of the bush

By Damita Lamont 19 July 2017

Wander into the nearby bushlands for rustic bouquet inspiration.  

Striking native flowers like waratah, kangaroo paw or bottle brush make a bold impact, and statement fillers such as stems of wattle, eucalypt or billy buttons round off the bouquet.

All you need next is some burlap, twine or cotton-lace to tie the stems.

South African flowers are also popular for rustic bouquets, with a slightly different array of flower styles like King Protea (pictured) and the equally voluminous (and aptly named) blushing bride.

Boutonnieres are also taking on a rustic flair, with native gumnuts (pictured) instead of flowers offering a different look.
