This Do It Yourself Babys Breath Arrangement can be easily personalized and you can start today. So simple and tasteful. Gypsophila, commonly known as Babys breath, is not only adorable but affordable. Its botanical name means “lover of chalk”, which is accurate in describing the type of soil in which this plant grows.

    There is such a lovely mix of modern and rustic here in Munster Rose’s styling. It’s refreshing to see the two styles mixed so fluidly with such an unexpected choice of flower. It’s amazing how much can be done with something so simple if done by the right person.

  12. -100. Danielle says:

    Love the hanging buckets! So simple and beautiful. My girls are carrying baby’s breath bouquets :)

  13. -100. Heather says:

    Where did you find such beautiful jars? They are perfect with the baby’s breath!

  14. -100. Jackie (Munster Rose) says:

    Thanks, Heather! We did some antiquing to find the real-deal antique blue ball jars. The old ones are harder to find but we’ve got tons of great shops here in the midwest for antiques. Most of these were from a shop in Hudson, WI called “Abigail Page”. A paradise for anything vintage. Needless to say, we walked out of there with more than just the jars….

  15. -100. Erica Hartman says:

    You have totally given me some new inspiration, thanks! I love the last ideas… the baby’s breath in the buckets! They are all so pretty :)

  16. -100. Leagh@bunchesdirect says:

    This baby breath is really charming!Although mostly it goes as filling material, we can see, that it can be completely independent element. It is very convenient because it lives in a vase for a very, very long time because it dries very well, without losing its good state.

  17. -100. Kaye says:

    Wow, this really inspired me to use baby’s breath and I’m planning to use mason jars for my wedding, too. Can you give me an idea of how much you used for the different containers that you show– particularly the mason jars. Thanks, great idea and it looks so sweet and vintage.

    Very clean and classy. HELP ME FIND JARS!

    Not sure how much to buy to do the 20 mason jars?

  25. -100. leslie briner says:

    We are using baby’s breath for all of the bridesmaids and the groomsmen as well as using it in the decorations. So we are needing several bunches of it, would you happen to know the best place to get it cheap? will probably need atleast 10 bunches. Anyone that has a idea please let me know. Thanks

    I am so loveing the baby’s breath in the mason jars (Can be used for centerpieces) and the bouquet and cones on the chairs. They all lovely.

  27. -100. Sabrina Crawford says:

    Bunches Direct has baby’s breath for $14 a bunch. A florist told me a bunch would probably do 6-8 mason jar arrangements. Depending on how big your mason jars are. I have many different sizes that I plan on doing the same thing with and also using the smaller ones or baby food jars as votive candles. You can spray them with a spray paint that turns glass into mirror finish or frost them.

  28. -100. LisaB says:

    Can you tell me how many bunches of baby’s breath you used for the metal pails? I am doing something similar for a friend’s wedding but cannot decide how many bunches to order.
