Although it looks complicated, this lovely boutonniere is very elegant but (shhhhh!) very economical at the same time! Yet you would pay a high price at a shop because of the mixed greens and the ribbon and pearl accents.
Mist all your finished wedding work with a flower sealant such as Finishing Touch. Let dry before refrigerating.
You will have beautiful boutonnieres that would look elegant at any black tie event and at the most sophisticated of weddings!
Finish all boutonnieres, corsages and bridal bouquets by spraying with a flower sealant such as Finishing Touch. This is even more important for DIY brides, since their cut flower designs are typically stored in a regular home refrigerator.
Florist coolers are designed to put humidity IN the air. Household refrigerators pull humidity OUT of the air. At the same time, they will be pulling the moisture out of your corsages and boutonnieres. Seal them with Finishing Touch and your designs will last longer after they are taken out of the fridge.
Florists buy this stuff by the gallon (or even larger). It's not necessary for a DIY bride to buy such an excessive amount, so I provide it in 32 oz bottles. One bottle for small to average wedding, 2 or more if you place on a lot of attendants and centerpieces.
Trust me - it's worth the investment.
