I make a special effort to keep my boutonniere and corsage stems slender by cutting off the excessive wires. My goal is to always have a neatly taped design that looks professional and hide the bare mechanics.
Use your fingers to give a smooth curve to the boutonniere stem, working it gently into a loop.
I'm tucking the end up under the Israeli Ruscus leaf that is folded under the bottom daisy head.
Finished! Beautiful, with understated elegance. Everything adds to the unique design, from the different greens to the simple addition of pearl accents.
