Man-day Mondays – The “Button”iere

A boutonnière is a floral decoration worn by men, typically a single flower or bud. The word comes from the French word for buttonhole.   Historically they were worn frequently, however, boutonnières are now worn only on special occasions, with formalwear, such as groomsmen in a wedding.

Looking for a creative, non-floral option to detailing the men’s attire?  Buttons (or buttonieres) have become a popular way to enhance the formalwear in wedding parties.

 

 

 

 

 

Although not an actual ‘button’ the boutonniere below is made with button mumms
