Admit it. Carnations are flowers that 99% of the population associate under category: fugly. When your 12th birthday rolled around and your middle school sweetheart handed you a dozen red carnations, you were smitten. These days, they're under loved and under appreciated.
I'm giving them another chance. Not only are they cheaper than most flowers in the grocery store, but they last three times as long AND look great in mason jars. I popped a few on our Thanksgiving table and I'm digging them. See, even the slightly under-loved of the underdogs will reign supreme in this household.
