Sheer boutonniere ribbon is appropriate for simple one loop ties, but don't put a full bow on one that is meant to be pinned on a man's lapel.
This ribbon makes beautiful loops and the edges are clean cut and do not fray. Always use good sharp scissors to cut your ribbon.
It comes in a good assortment of colors, including burgandy, chocolate (brown), eggplant (kind of a deep plum color) gold, lavender, an earthy green, periwinkle, pink, purple, red and white.
Please note that some computer monitors don't always accurately portray colors and they may differ slightly from what you see below. Also - different manufacturers call colors "periwinkle" - and may differ slightly as well.
