The Look, the Feel of Cotton

   In the South, we have our own version of snow, otherwise known as the cotton boll. If you've ever driven by a field of cotton ripe for the picking, you know what I mean. Our Southern snow in its natural state has a beauty all of its own. With brides embracing the use of natural materials for wedding decor, it seems obvious that cotton would figure prominently as a viable, economical and organic choice.

 The nice thing is that many of these items can then become keepsakes or be repurposed for later use. It seems like a smart choice to me. 
The bouquet below boasts cotton bolls interspersed with muslim flowers, vintage chenille and white tallow berries. You can have this treasure for only $95 from Sparkle and Posy on Etsy.
