Birds of a Feather

Besides being a dietary staple for animals like koalas and a popular scent for candles and essential oils, eucalyptus makes a great addition to your wedding décor. From bouquets to centerpieces and even accents for your cake, this hearty green is not only pretty, it's perfect for adding texture, depth and fullness to any arrangement. With so many varieties to choose from (there are over 700 in existence), from round silvery green leaves to long stems with multiple leaves, you'll have no problem making your décor stand out. And you can even use the seeds — they've become a florist favorite, popping in boutonnieres, bouquets and centerpieces everywhere!
