This bouquet is a gardener’s dream.  What could be better than using natural & organic greens to surround yourself with! You can get creative with the ingredients too… use what you have on hand or is readily available at your local farmer’s market or grocery store.

I used beautiful rainbow chard with it’s large, veiny leaves.  I love the particular drama it adds to the bouquet!  I also used dinosaur kale with it’s high texture and interesting color.  I cut the aromatic and frilly fronds from a fennel bulb and used them for filler along with some parsley and red kale.
