The cutest yellow flower : billy buttons or billy balls for weddings

I recently designed a wedding invitation and other paper goodies for an upcoming photo shoot with an illustration I did of the fun yellow flower known as billy buttons or billy balls {aka: craspedia}. I thought today it would be fun to share with you lots of inspiration for using the flower that resembles the sun and just makes me smile. One common theme I found was that billy balls are often paired with succulents and I have to say, it's an amazing look. I also like seeing the flower paired with the unexpected - like the bouquets with pink and purple flowers or the chevron pattern. What's your favorite pairing?
