They’re cute! don’t let your mom talk you into real flowers if you’ve already bought these and you have them in your hot little hands. Otherwise, what a waste of money!

I’m not doing real ones, either. They die in the heat, stain the jackets, and get crushed too easily.

Those are too cute!  I think once she sees them she’ll fall in love too!

Very cute!  The polka dot fabric adds a surprise bit of whimsy to the bouts.  Let us know what your mother thinks!

 I think their really sweet! I used vintage paper Lily of the valley for my bouts and am SOOOOOO glad I did. There was no fuss all day. Also I’ve seen them pinned up at almost everyones house who wore them. You can’t tell from photographs that their fake and no one will remember in 20 years , but I did put my grooms in a shadowbox.

They are cute!! I’m still debating on whether to use real flowers or silk.  I think the designer did a great job!!

Great news!  I think that the idea of a keepsake boutonniere is so sweet.  (It probably has to do with my pack-rat tendencies.)  I could totally see those as something that would be passed down through generations.  :o)

At one point, I was planning on doing this project from Martha.
