tips & tricks & facts:
- Wheat is often available dried but if you’re able to purchase fresh wheat, it is more mailable and easier to use in arrangements
- Pair wheat with unexpected elements to create a fall bouquet. We added it to an arrangement with deep blue anemone for a fall tablescape for a unique spin on the classic fall centerpiece.
- Wheat is used in food all the time (oh, hey gluten!)
- Many people are allergic to wheat so avoid using it in bouquets/corsages/boutonnieres unless you’re 100% sure won’t have your bride sneezing during her big day!
