Eucalyptus Wedding Decorations
Eucalyptus - those tall fragrant trees stood guard all around the perimeter of George Washington Carver Elementary School, silent witnesses to our clumsy attempts at flirting and freeze tag. It's what I miss most about Southern California - blue gum eucalyptus trees transported for timber and furniture making by the Australians during the California Gold Rush. There are over 600 varieties but ours had long, leathery leaves, peeling bark and a fresh minty scent. The eucalyptus wedding decorations shown below are a mixture of blue gum (lighted candles with table garland and ruffled wedding cake) and round, silver dollar eucalyptus leaves. So fresh, so inviting...a fragrance your guests won't soon forget.
