Bridal Bouquet and Boutonniere


Lorene Eppolite


I was recently approached by The Green Bride Guide about using my Rosette’s Pattern in their blog for June Brides. Of course I was honored to be asked, but it also kicked my brain into overdrive. I often have way too many ideas floating around in my head, which kinda makes it hard for me to get anything done because I have pattern ADD. I’m always distracted by the next idea, or pattern I want to make. I have a hard time staying focused. So of course I instantly had 20 idea’s for what I wanted to do… make boutiques, make boutonnieres, centerpieces, garlands, etc, etc. I was able to narrow it down to a couple things to start with. The first thing I made is this lovely boutique or nosegay featuring sweet roses in shades of white with bright lime green leaves. I weaved the finished pieces together with floral wire and yarn and then wrapped them in ribbon to finish it off. I wanted my boutique to have a vintage feel so I used one of my mother’s vintage brooches to finish my boutique off.
