Friday Flowers: Ranunculus

Ranunculus are certainly a favorite flower of many brides out there. Layers and layers of tissue-thin petals create gorgeous blooms that are available in a rainbow of colors. Often though, it’s overshadowed by big puffy peonies, roses, or dahlias. It’s such a gorgeous flower itself, I think it’s about time it gets some time in the spotlight! Let’s take a look at how to go beyond using it as only a filler flower, but instead as the main focus or only bloom of an arrangement.
