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.)
