Fall Boutonnieres

Martha Stewart Weddings, 2005

Incorporate the shades and symbols of autumn into festive boutonnieres that are easy to DIY.

From left to right, top to bottom:

  • Cut leaf shapes out of jacquard ribbon with a fern motif from Masterstroke Canada, and use as foliage behind fresh phalaenopsis orchids.
  • Tie bittersweet and vintage silk leaves together with taffeta ribbon.
  • Form an everlasting ornament by securing tiny prewired pinecone flowers and paper ferns from Tinsel Trading Company with silk ribbon by Midori.
  • Wrap stems of warm-hued freesia in brown floral tape and then tie with taffeta ribbon for a finishing touch.

    Why can't boutonnieres have bows? I think they're gorgeous! I can't imagine my FH ever saying "ewwww... a BOW!" :)

    These are gorgeous. Its a very modern and natural theme fr wedding these days to actually have some of the seasons more natural flowers as bouts. I love it. This time in age for wedding planning less is more. Although for my wedding i opted for the traditional and (lets be honest, boring) white rose, i would have much rather done something like this/
