Making the Most of Boxwood

We’ve been noticing a trend that this season’s weddings are full of lush greenery. One of the most popular ways to incorporate greenery without breaking the bank is to use boxwood elements. This plant is extremely versatile and can be formed into a variety of shapes and sizes. Boxwood is very natural and can therefore be mixed with any kind of style! Check out some of our favorite ways to make the most of boxwood:

One of the most dramatic ways to use boxwood is as a backdrop, and it could be a backdrop for anything! Your ceremony, the dessert table, the escort card display, or the whole reception space.  Accent with florals, picture frames, lights, or other shapes that coordinate with your overall wedding style!

Place the escort cards in a bed of boxwood to make them pop! Try setting them on a table or mounting them on a wall.  Accent with florals for an extra pop of color.

Boxwood can be used in many shapes and sizes. Use small boxwood topiaries in table decor and accents.  Larger shaped topiaries can line the aisle for your ceremony or set the scene for your reception. Try using unique pots!

Boxwood can be made into pretty wreaths and garlands too! Accent table settings or the backs of chairs with wreaths and tables with a beautiful strand of garland.
