Twine and Wire Wrapped Bouquets

As I mentioned previously, my parents recently celebrated their 35th Wedding Anniversary and also renewed their vows in front of 50 family and friends.  My siblings and I surprised them with a professional photographer for the event.  I also made a bouquet and boutonniere for them... BEFORE I took my mom shopping for her dress.  Oops.  Probably should have waited since she ended up with a white, sparkly number with silver strappy shoes!

Yeah, this very fall and rustic bouquet wasn't the best match:

 Which kind of bummed me out because I really, REALLY loved it.
I found the idea at Wedding Chicks.

But I wasn't ready to toss it yet.  I took off the brown twine, wrapped it with purple satin ribbon and then wrapped it with some jewelry wire I had.  I wish I had a thicker gage wire, but I still thinks this looks OK and will work with her outfit.
I also added a little more greenery below the purple flowers.
I did leave the twine on my Dads boutonniere:
I just winged this one but I like had it turned out.
