Trendspotting: Raw Cotton

In my last Trendspotting post I talked about humble flowers… cotton bolls are another example of how something really simple can become unexpectedly beautiful if used in the right way. We’ve been seeing raw cotton pop up in several weddings lately and I’m loving the trend!

These puffy little blooms work well in centerpieces and small decor details…

In bouquets…

And they make the best little bouts…

I notice that the cotton trend has mostly been used in weddings with a natural, organic feel… I’d love to see how they would look a bit more glammed up as well. Any florists out there willing to take on that challenge?

    I love this idea! Could a florist order cotton for me, or is there a way I can get it myself? I live in WA state.
    Thank you for the idea!
