I’ve posted on here before about boutonnieres, and have shared my mixed feelings when it comes to making them. Needless to say, I still have a love/hate relationship with them, but they end up looking so gooood that I definitely feel they’re needed to add the final touch to any special occasion! I’ve also added some corsage’s that dressed up all the lovely ladies in the wedding party! Lately a lot of the little guys I’ve been making have had a very earthy, picked out of the garden, or barn vibe to them. (You’ll see what I mean,ENJOY! ) I love sharing creations to help inspire and direct someone planning an event, it helps you to see what you like…and dont like!
I was fortunate enough to be part of an industrial photo shoot and this one was funky with tools! A washer was added to fabric leaves, ranunulus buds and filler. COOL!
This boutonniere had a very ‘picked out of the garden’ vibe! It had the herbs to give it a fresh aroma and the burlap ribbon to add a country edge to it!
To stay in the country, here is one that was made out of wheat, rosemary, and some wax flower. It definitely screamed barn wedding!
This one might be my favorite! It just looks so happy and makes me smile! Yellow Ranunculus, billy balls and chamomile with filler!
Making a 2nd appearance on the blog scene, is a boutonniere that I made for our 2nd photo shoot! I love using lavender. Rosemary makes for a great green filler too. I used Scabiosa buds to garnish!
Yellow and white are just so adorable together! Especially with the burlap, I feel like I’m in the country! Lisianthus and billy balls with filler make for a sweet boutonniere (or can multi-task for a mothers corsage! Just had a bow and ta da!
Speaking of corsage’s, I think its time to introduce our first one to the post! This is a wrist corsage consisting of a garden rose, dahlia and seeded eucalyptus with a burlap bow. It was pretty massive, but I still love the way it looked! (And grandmothers typically like a bigger corsage, so splurge!)
Another type of corsage is a pin on. This one has everything in it and looooks gooood! Wheat, succulent, lavender you name it! It’s got it! Lace ribbon to finish it off.
Here we decided to keep it simple with just ranunulus and greens. Lace to finish!
Kids also get to dress up for special occasions and if your little guy is in the wedding he gets something too! This looks big, but it’s just a mini succulent for the ring bearer!
I hope this helps you get a better idea of how creative you can get with your boutonnieres and corsages!
