Are you as Happy as I am?
Fall is here and that means Cooler weather, Cozy Sweaters, Yummy Soups and LOTS of Pumpkin Treats.
I couldn’t be Happier.
We all know that with Fall, comes lots of gathering and getting together. Whether that be with Family, Friends, Co-Workers or just a Night out with your, Sweetheart. Special Occasions are going to be on the RISE!!!
So I am going to share an easy way, you can get your Sweetie looking Dapper for all these fun Fallish ( is that a word?) Gatherings with…
5 Fall Boutonnieres
They are so EASY to make, you can whip them up as your Dressing for that special occasion.
Though earlier is always better, I just know that there are a lot of, LAST MINUTE folks out there… UH HMMMM! Talking about myself mainly.
So here are the supplies you’ll need to pull off these 5 Fall Boutonnieres.
Fall Foliage: Real or Fake ( I purchased mine from Joann’s)
OPTIONAL: Aluminum Wire Floral Accents, Raffia, Twine or Green Stem Tape.
I found all these in Joann’s Floral and Bridal Section.
If your using Fake Foliage for your 5 Fall Boutonnieres, you will need WIRE CUTTERS, in order to cut your Stems.
Trim your Stems and Flowers. Lay them out and begin playing with Combinations and Placements.
When your pleased with the look of your Boutonniere, use the twine ( or binding of choice ) and wrap the stems of your Boutonniere.
If your using Fake Foliage, you can hot glue a small pin to the back of your Boutonnieres.
If your using REAL Foliage ( or even with the fake ) you can attach it with a PIN.
Another option is using your Boutonniere hole in your Lapel and slipping it through, to hold in place.
The options and ability to be Creative with your 5 Fall Boutonnieres is ENDLESS!!
Have fun and don’t just make 5 Fall Boutonnieres make LOTS of them!!!
Give them away as gifts, dress your whole family with them.
Here are some of the one’s that I made and I can’t wait to make a whole LOT more.
I hope you will consider giving them a try.
