Boutonnieres

Hello Blog world…Sorry I’ve been so quiet as of late. Between wedding planning / work / family / and an oyster shell through my foot over Labor Day weekend, my life has been even more hectic than usual! I did survive my encounter with the crusty little bastard after jumping off my fiancé’s boat in Crooked River, GA. Four stitches, a tetanus shot, and lots of pain meds later I have this little *souvenir* to share…

Yep that little beauty was all up inside my poor little foot. I’m thinking about making a necklace out of it. And then of course having an oyster roast!

Well on to the real reason for this post. I’ve been meaning to show off the boutonnieres I created for our upcoming wedding. Why yes…it’s only 3 months away!! {{time to start freaking out!}}

Ok so I was inspired from some different styles I found on Etsy and here is what I came up with:

Super simple and I LOVE the way they turned out 🙂 All it took were some crafty goods from Michaels including:

  • Paper Gardenias (from Wedding section pack of 12 for like $5)
  • Speckled Feathers (bag of like 500 for $3)
  • 1 Roll of Ribbon (Apple Green from Michael’s 360 Brand $3)
  • Flower Tape (Dollar Store $1)
  • Pearl Tipped Pins (Pack of 50 at Dollar $1)

Grand Total: 12 Boutonnieres for $13 

And I have tons of feathers left over I’m using with the invitations. Pretty genius thought I had speaking of those…what better way to embellish something you have to (pay) to mail! They are light as a feather…Brilliant!

Hope you are having a great TGIF!
