I thought I was being a rocket scientist and I got a ton of the brown florist tape to make some baby's breath--and it seems all the gypsophila aka baby's breath I've been getting/seeing has brown stems--but I just got some b's b at the store & the stems are beautiful light green--dang dang dang--I have some light green florist tape somewhere.

So do you think brown is good or should I make it green?

My wires are white so I could color those green & tape it with the brown.

All brown?

All green?

Multi color green and brown?

White and brown??

White and green?

Over think much, Kate? Why thank you I think I will. icon_biggrin.gif

Ok--I found some old light green florist tape in a drawer finally, wiped off the random assorted spots of icing and powdered sugar--b's b looks so-o pretty made up!!!

I am using dessicated coconut (chopped up in the food processor) wonder if I should add a little edible glitter??? Think I will.

Hey k8 you weren't wrong........dried baby's breath has brown stems.......the fresh stuff has green.

This sounds like a very interesting undertaking.......please post pics when you're finished. I can't wait to see it. icon_smile.gif

Aww you guys are so sweet...I had tried to get a shot & it just sucked
so I tried again...--came out not as puny as the first...



And here's a pictorial I did using chocolate and edible glitter--but this time I'm using piping gel and coconut so it holds better.

Yeah shoot (about the colors) I don't know what I was thinking I guess I just had never paid attention to fresh baby's breath before. I mean I did notice that it never really hardly died (the stuff with brown stems that I usually get) but duh on me. icon_biggrin.gif

edited to say--btw--that's a booboo rose just to give proportion

I'm thinking I should prolly dust the white stems with green huh? But I think I'll get green all over everything.. think I'll skip it this time...hmmm...maybe if I brush right before I dip in the piping gel--that will work!

I have Michele Fosters video and she uses white wire for the babys breath (if I remember correctly -- I haven't watched it in a while.) icon_lol.gif
