traditional floral boutonnières

We love the simplicity of these classic white floral boutonnières! Small, but oh-so-elegant, they’re just the thing for the men in your wedding party. One rose, a little filler and a bit of ribbon are all you need. Let us show you how easy they are to make!
Step 1
Select a full-sized rose to be the focus for each of your boutonnières. Use your floral cutters to snip the rose, leaving a stem that’s 2"-3" long. 
Step 2
Snip a 3" piece of the Dusty Miller to place behind the rose. It should extend an inch or so above the rose. It’s good to have some variation from boutonnière to boutonnière. 
Step 3
Add a rosebud or two behind or next to the rose. Be sure to vary the number and placement of rosebuds from one boutonnière to another. 
Step 4
Wrap all the floral and greenery stems together tightly with floral tape.

TIP: As you wrap, make sure to stretch the tape to release its coating of wax adhesive, which will make it to stick to itself.
Step 5
Finally, finish your boutonnière by wrapping black ribbon over the floral tape, then tying a knot at the top, right underneath the flowers. If you’d like, use a little hot glue to fasten the ribbon in place. Just repeat these steps to make as many boutonnières as you need. They’re so sweet and delicate! 
Step 6
To wear, place the boutonnière on the left jacket lapel (covering the buttonhole, if there is one) and secure it in place at the ribbon-wrapped section with a long pin.

TIP: Looking for more pretty pins? We have lots to choose from – take a look here.
