Simply tie them with lace and twine and you have a perfect vintage-chic look.

It’s the simple touches in a wedding that are the most breathtaking. Mark your ceremony site with a gorgeous display of baby’s breath, like a simple wreath hung around a tree, or mason jars filled and hung down the aisle on Shepard’s hooks or on your wooden chairs. It costs a lot less to fill jars and vases full with baby’s breath than other flowers – and it looks great with many other types of blooms – peonies and garden roses our our favourites!
Little jars, cans and bottles look so gorgeous filled with gypsophila. Leave them on their own for simplicity or group them together for a pretty effect. You could also fill a vintage suitcase or old wooden drawers with baby’s breath and use it to hold your escort cards.
