DIY Boutonnieres (only to be worn in dry weather)

So ... when BM Emily was here back in January, I put her to work making boutonnieres for the groomsmen and Wade. I took pictures so I could blog about it ... but never got around to it until now!

We started with the silk mini calla lilies:

We glued the callas to big leaves (from my silk hydrangeas in the centrepieces):

And glued alligator clips on the back:

Here's BM Emily holding a finished product:

And here's me holding 2 finished products:

What was Wade doing? Well, it was Saturday night (hockey was on) so he was doing this:

All 6 boutonnieres (groom, best man, 4 groomsmen):

Aren't they cute? There's something missing, though. It looks like it would be better if there was something on the bottom. Silk berries? A bow?

(I'll explain why they can only be worn in dry weather tomorrow.)
