Ok…which is your favorite? Or do you lean more toward a traditional rose and greenery boutonniere?

Hope you all gave a great weekend!





  1. I like the fern curls best – sexy is right! Some of those others, though, make me shudder to think of how a pin was shoved through them. I have had more than enough fights with twig-like bouts. On the other hand, I suppose you could wrap a metal square into the ribbon and secure it to the lapel with a magnet…Write that down! We need to remember that one!

    Man those are some patent leather fiddleheads! You know me though–if you ever need a girl to paint some flowers, I’m there! 🙂
