The World's Most Hated Bloom
Now I'm not saying I wouldn't slam the door if a date dared to show up with these—I'm more of an orchid or listhianthus kind of gal. But just this once, I decided to bypassed my usual fuchsia long-stems and give the modestly priced carnations a try. Now don't delve too deeply into that 80's prom montage, just hear me out. As long as you steer clear of the pastels with babies breath and ferns and opt for a monochromatic arrangement in a modern vessel, I think funeral territory can be avoided, non? They are like a blanket or orange frills (forgive the amateur photography and take my word for it). Carnations, I salute you; now who's with me?
