I just had to share this wonder blog post by I Heart Buttons, a fantastic Uk Button designer, she sums up a well worded blog post with fab advice.
Perfect to brighten up the home, an alternative Bride’s Bouquet, or something different for the bridesmaids!!!
This is a whimsical and modern version of a bridal bouquet, it’s unusual, its everlasting will not wilt on a hot day, is a memorable keepsake, and no pollen for those who suffer from hayfever.
Bouquets are custom made to match your colour scheme, a minimum of 70 stems are used for a Bridal Bouquet, each Bouquet is finished with silk ivy leaves and Stems are wrapped with satin ribbon, finished with a row of Pearl Pins, bows and hanging tails (optional), to finish your inspired look.
Bridesmaids and flower girls bouquets available to match as are buttonholes, corsages, wrist corsages and Button Necklaces. I recommend that this bouquet is not thrown into the crowd of waiting ladies as it may be damaged if dropped.
If you would like to purchase multiple items for your entire bridal party contact me and ill create a package for you. I can make bouquets larger and smaller if you wish. I have been collecting buttons from over the world both new and vintage so you are sure to receive a large variety of buttons you never would have known existed!
As every flower lover knows, flowers have a language of their own. Some flowers have different “true meanings”; (this is a snapshot of some tradition meanings). So, while sending any type of flowers send your fond thoughts……
