It's not often that I admit to eating my words, but I am going to go ahead and do it. I was wrong. Carnations are not just filler flowers. When used in the right manner, they look amazing, and definitely offer a less expensive option as a floral choice. Not to mention that they come in pretty much every color under the sun, and having variety is certainly not a bad thing. I will, however, put my foot down on the white ones, with the blue tips. That's just wrong.
