If we had to make a list of our favorite flower fillers, Queen Anne’s lace would be at the top. What makes this delicate and expressive bloom so special is its versatility. Naturally growing in the wild, Queen Anne’s lace is often used in rustic arrangements. At the same time, it brings texture and lightness to more classic flower displays.
The story behind the flower is as interesting as its rounded, nest-like appearance. Queen Anne, the wife of King James I, was challenged by her friends to create lace as beautiful as flowers.
