How to Make a Romantic Boutonniere
DIY Photo Tutorial

DIY Boutonniere Tutorial with purple lisianthus

To make this romantic boutonniere you will need:
Fillers (heather and baby’s breath)
Plumosus fern or other green
stem wrap


If you haven’t worked with lisianthus before, you will learn that the blooms are delicate. Their delicacy is what gives them such a romantic and whimsical look. So to protect their beauty, we take extra precautions when working with them by wiring the blooms. You will see in the following pictures how to do so. You will push a straight piece of wire through the part just above where the green stem ends. And then once you have folded both pieces of the wire down you will use the stem wrap to tape it against the stem.

After wrapping your wired lisianthus, you can pick a filler and add it around the bloom. To make this romantic boutonniere you are going to want to have 2 or 3 of these small bunches with one bloom, filler and/or green. And then you will combine the smaller pieces to make one bigger lush boutonniere. To prevent the stem on the boutonniere from being too thick, you can cut away the stems of the fillers once you have the top of them secured (as you will see below).

Now below, you have the 3 separate bunches of of the boutonniere staggered together to create the one big boutonniere.  Once you have them positioned how you want them, you can wrap your final piece of stem wrap around all of the little bunches. Then cut the bottom of the stems to make it even.

Add some ribbon to match your theme, or a little piece of lace to give your romantic boutonniere your own personal touch!


Remember, lisianthus comes in a variety of gorgeous colors- this purple is one of the deepest and truest purples you can find in nature! We also have white, cream, pink, AND peach. They look amazing in bouquets, centerpieces, and flower crowns. Shop our collection here and pick the bunch that will match your wedding theme!

Ahoy nautical brides and flower helpers! Tackle this easy project and save some money by learning how to make a nautical boutonniere. The most common flowers found in nautical boutonnieres are anemones and ranunculus. In this tutorial, instead of those nautical wedding staples, we went with some gorgeous (inexpensive!) hardy blooms, to withstand any nautical wind coming on your wedding day.

We used a fraction of one stem of each of the following: orange spray roses, brunia silver, and Italian ruscus. We also threw some bear grass in at the end, just for kicks :)

Start by gathering your base, normally this includes the biggest/focal blooms. We started with the spray roses and the Italian ruscus.

Tape your first little bunch with stemwrap. Above you can see us cutting away the thick stem so the bottom of the boutonniere isn’t too bulky. We then continued to wrap over the stems so you couldn’t see the cut nub hanging out.

Add the filler and additional blooms if necessary to the first bunch. Before securing the additional stems in place, test out how the bout looks just by holding it against your shirt. Sometimes bouts will be flattened once they are pinned on, so you want to make sure you find your bouts best side and work with it.

If you think your bout needs a little more length, you can add a tall green like bear grass. This will really give your bout that extra flare once it’s pinned on.

When you’ve secured your final layer, go ahead and trim the bottom so you have about 2 inches of wrapped stems to work with. Remember, you can always trim shorter, but you can’t add length, so start with it long. This will also help with covering the stemwrap and making sure the boutonniere isn’t too top heavy.


We wrapped out nautical bout with some blue and white striped fabric. Other great nautical options are hemp, twine, or thin white rope.

That looks easy enough doesn’t it? Now you know how to make a nautical boutonniere! Let us know if you have questions!

Dahlia SALE
August 2016

The only thing better than dahlias themselves is dahlias ON SALE! It is so much easier to love things more when they are cheaper. And if you agree, this dahlia sale will have you head-over-heels and you will be partying with us all August!

dahlias 2500

One of the things we love about dahlias is that their size, shape, and color are unpredictable. No two blooms are the same. That probably doesn’t sound like a flower quality to love. But because their beauty never disappoints, the difference in bloom diameter, lack of a stamen, or shade of red does not matter.

So take a look at the wide variety of shapes and sizes in these dahlia head shots!

And for those of you looking for dark colored flowers, prepare to be amazed. The Chocolate dahlias are incredible. There is no exaggeration that they are near black with the smallest hint of burgundy on the outer petals.

Stay tuned for some easy tricks and tutorials for arrangements you can make with these pretty blooms! Shop now and join in on the Dahlia SALE fun!

Sale runs from August 1, 2016 to August 31, 2016.
