Craspedia...aka Billy Balls

Billy balls, billy bells, wooly balls, drumstick or craspedia... whichever name you prefer, these fun little round balls of sunshine can't help but bring a smile to your face!
Bouquets made entirely of craspedia! Wow!
This table set up from Elizabeth Designs is one of my favorites! I love the all white, or mostly white background, the dark contrast of the birch branches with the punch of color from the flowers. The craspedia flowers could be changed out for any color or variety. Imagine hot pink orchids...or blue delphinium!
Another craspedia bouquet with a greenery "collar". These also offer a great variety of texture when mixed with other flowers
These make great boutonnieres for those who aren't too keen on wearing flowers.
