An alstromeria boutonniere is made with a flower also known as a Peruvian lily. Graceful and delicate, this flower has great holding power and comes in a large choice of colors. Reds, oranges, yellows, lavender and more - you'll love the beautiful look of this elegant flower. It works well for weddings and proms.
Several blooms come on one stem, so for a two bloom boutonniere as shown below you should be able to get more than one bout out of a stem. This one is simple, wound with with florist tape, a small amount of filler has been added and then decorated with a colorful wire accent.
Decorative wire comes in so many different colors and thicknesses that it is a lot of fun to experiment and see what unusual combinations you can design.
Peruvian lilies comes in a true lavender color. Accented with a strong blue, this corsage is very attractive - yet not at all "girly".
Adding other fillers such as hypericum berries also adds interest and texture to this orange boutonniere.
