Although I hesitate to recommend Gerber boutonnieres for hot, outside
weddings (they are very water loving and tend to droop), they are still
very much of a favorite with brides. Be sure to mist the flower heads
throughly with a
and keep cool until needed.
Bullion wire is so much fun to design with and adds shimmers and hints of other colors to the bout.
Here, decorative grasses has been used to full advantage for a unique stem finish. Want to know a secret? A new adhesive called Uglu makes grass treatments like this one a snap.
Metallic wire is smooth and bullion is crimped - and both come in a lot of different colors to jazz up boutonnieres and corsages. The final crowning accent is one small diamante pin in the center of the Gerber head.
I was sad that John Henry decided to discontinue their fiberoptic corsage lights - they made for a fantastic look at an evening affair.
Purple asters create bright contrast against the orange Gerbera daisy. Glue a green hypericum berry in the center with flower adhesive for a finishing touch.
