Learn How to Make a Boutonniere

Pearl Accented Rose

Learning how to make a professional looking boutonniere is all in the details.  It's not that hard to cut a rose or carnation and pin it to a groomsman's lapel.

Keep in mind that adding bows and lace does not generally appeal to the men.  The same is true for three or four large flower heads - that always looks more like a shoulder corsage rather than a buttonhole posy.

I love the look of mixed greens, which I think adds interest and great composition to any design.  Turn a simple rose into a sophisticated art for your special event!
