The Technique

Once a variety of clippings have been chosen that are designed to hold up well during warm days & for several hours without water, a boutonniere may be created. Using floral wire, secure the main bloom in place so that it remains upright. Next accent the bloom with complimentary greenery & clippings. Create a miniature bouquet & secure them together with a bit of floral tape. Wrap satin ribbon or twine around the stems to cover them then secure it with a pin. Finally, attach an additional decorative pin to the boutonniere so it may be secured to the recipients jacket.
