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.
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.
