These gorgeous green boutonnieres could be made year round but are especially charming at a winter wedding. We gathered greens and mix and matched them for a casual, natural style. They won't wilt and their fragrance will add to the seasonal atmosphere.
You will need:
8-10 stems of greens (for three boutonnieres). We used cedar, boxwood, bay, rosemary, and hydrangea flowers.
hot glue gun
Creating the boutonnieres:
Rinse and dry all of the greenery.
Pick out the stems you'd like to combine for your boutonniere and remove all the leaves below the first inch of the stem.
Place the larger leaves, or bulkier greenery at the back, place buds and light weight greens like ivy at the front. Tape together with floral tape.
Try not to make this area larger than about an inch. Sometimes it is easier to tape together a few stems and then combine them together.
Take the ribbon and wrap it neatly around where you've placed the floral tape. Fold over the raw edge of the ribbon and place a dot of hot glue underneath. Secure it to the rest of the ribbon.
A tip: Add name tags to all of your boutonnieres and corsages. It's a little thing that cuts down on confusion and stress on the big day. Everyone will easily be able to find their flowers without the help from the bride!
