Going around in the web looking for DIY projects, i found one that i found charming. And very green! Artichokes! Have you imagined making decorations with artichokes? A much more affordable alternative to table centerpieces and a unique rustic touch that can be mixed with any other style.
These are the type of plant that are already seen in bouquets (and in many Spanish dishes!), but they may be incorporated in any type of floral decoration. In this case the artichokes were used in two different ways: the decoration of the hallway of ceremony and the tables.
As we can see in the photo, artichokes hanging on hooks were used to decorate the hallway of this marriage ceremony. Just flip the artichokes upside down, wrap the stems with string and add flowers on top.
