I have tried to find some pics of it being done and can’t! That is irritating.  I am sure it can be done, they are a lovely flower and if your flourist can get their hands on the flower they should be able to do the boutonniere.

I think the cornflower would be a pretty versitile flower, though.  It could be used in many different boutonniere styles!

I wanted to use actual cornflowers as well but my florist said they really do not hold up well out of water and tend to wilt very fast… Maybe that’s why there are so few pics out there using this flower? Such a bummer bc they are so sweet and pretty and fit right into my color scheme!

don’t cornflowers dry pretty well?  I think I have some dried at home.  Maybe that would be a good option?

Oh goodness I have a new love in little flowers! Do let us know if you find out the cornflower isn’t a good choice for a boutonnier. I love those little things! What about blue thistle? Those are a fun small flower too that might work out. Plus they seem like a pretty hardy flower just looking at them–not delicate–but I could be wrong.
