Sweet Stock

I love the sweet clove fragrance and ruffled petals. Ever notice that stock usually plays a supporting role rather than being the star? I was excited to see Beautiful Blooms Events let stock be the star for a day…

I love the color variety… carmine, purple, butter, peach, white…see if you can spot the stock in these arrangements…

What’s your favorite color of stock?

Happy Wednesday…oh my gosh…it’s Working Designer Wednesday and this is the first time it crossed my mind! Oh well, guess we’ll get back to it next week.

I’m still thinking about yesterday’s post…thanks for your comment, Lisa!! I was hoping I wasn’t alone. You made my day!

I love stock. Love the fragrance. If I had to choose my favorite, though I love the rich colors, my favorite is white. It just looks so lovely and brings so much texture to monochromatic bouquets and arrangements. Thanks for giving it the staring role it deserves!

I love stock and use it often, but mostly in a secondary role, not as the star. I like the butter-yellow best. It carries a scent that people seem to enjoy but cannot pinpoint, and is not too overpowering.

Love stock! So glad you featured it! I think I've used stock in every design I've done so far professionally! Inexpensive, pretty, versatile, comes in great colors - what's not to love! My favorite color is the hot pink, or peach
