I’ve been spending my days recently making some boutonnières for the Fusion Union Wedding Expo. I’ve been having a lot of fun coming up with different combinations of flowers, beads, shells (yes, shells!), and succulents. Seriously – I’m having so much fun making things for this wedding expo, I want to get married again, just so I can completely DIY my whole wedding (again!).


Here are some pictures of some of the boutonnières I’ve made, I haven’t photographed all of them, mostly because it’s really hard to get a decent picture of them.


Like I said hard to photograph, but this is the one with the seashell in the middle. It looks much better in person.

My mom made fun of this one when I showed it to her. She said no one in their right mind would like orange and blue together and why did I pick such dark colors for my samples…

This is the first one I made. I love these silver balls. I was thinking of trying to make one of just the silver balls, but wasn’t sure if that would be too weird.

I’m way into succulents lately, maybe because of all this snow! I need to experiment with the succulents a bit more, I think.

As I make these, I’m getting more and more excited and nervous about the expo. It’s a totally different market and direction for me, but I feel like it’s the right way to go. At least it feels like when I’m making these things, these are what I should be making, like it isn’t forced…so, we’ll see…

    I hope the expo goes great. My good friend is a florist and she had her husband build her a soft box to photograph her arrangements. Just a thought. 🙂

      That’s a great idea!! I’ve been mostly just taking pictures as I go, with my phone – so not professional! I need to get a good lightbox system going.
