BOUQUET SUGGESTIONS? (looking for a dark flower)

I'm looking for dark colored flowers (to be paired with black feathers) for my bouquet, which I'm making myself. I like the look of black baccara roses, but don't really want to go with a rose. I have considered making paper flowers, just to add a creative touch, but I am still leaning towards fresh flowers. Any suggestions? (ps- definitely not into silk flowers)

  • Hollyhocks, tulips, or lilies come in near black to very dark colors and each has a beautiful shape. The black iris is a gorgeous flower that would look good in a bouquet mixed with other fall colored flowers. Photina is another beautiful flower with deep tones, I found this on a florist site. Good luck finding the right one!
