June Floral Fashions/ White blossoms are more used than colored ones, particularly for room dec- oration. There is no time in the year when apartments are so handsomely embellished with flowers as in the spring and early summer, when out of doors growth is so plentiful. Boughs of dog- wood are formed into wedding bowers and are altogether the most aesthetic material yet employed for this purpose. May bells are also quite fashionable for weddings. These are a chime of three bells of different sizes and different white flowers, the ropes being of white satin ribbon. Lily of the valley, daisies and rosebuds are the flowers of which the bells are composed. A wreath of apple blossoms made narrower at one side and swung diagonally, is another device quite in vogue for weddings. The arrangement of rooms is with different white blossoms, for instance, one apartment will be decked with lilies, one with hybrid roses—Puritans and Mabel Morrisons, and another will be ornamented with daisies. Libraries are embellished with foliage, or quiet flowers such as pansies. Where there is an end window, stained glass etlects are accom- plished with pansy panels. This is a grand way to exhibit the splendid crop of pansy seedlings. Bouquets of white lilacs are the most stylish for brides. These are made large and loose and are finished with white satin ribbon. Bridesmaids carry purple and pink lilacs, the latter being produced in Washington. Brides wear lilacs in their hair, the sprays falling over the veil at the back. Bridesmaids, at full dress weddings, also wear blossoms in their hair to match the flowers they carry. There is generally a spray at one side. When little girls are maids of honor they are crowned with a full wreath of flowers, usually moss rosebuds, or Mignonette roses. Head wreaths re- quire very careful arrangement,otherwise they are clumsy. A new steamer
