          I think I'd pull the leaf down and to the side, so it's under but off sideways from the orchid and then see if you can attach a small starfish pin or make one out of bling. That's how I'd incorporate both. I totally think you can have both items, but not the way they are.

          Also, you really need to see what it will look like on a suit. Even if you just pin it onto your FI's suit hanging on a hanger and then take a pic for us :)

          But take a break and go back to it later.
          I'll show you if I find anything like what I'm suggesting :)

            Like the concept...I agree something is off. I like the bling though :)

              Here are some inspiration pics:

              A simple starfish boutonniere (it's hot-glued to a brooch pin):

              A starfish with a bit of pearl spray (could also be done with wire and crystals, for bling!) Click the image to open in full size.

              Flower bigger with a small shell/starfish on the green bit - I know you can get those same ones really tiny - finger starfish:

                  I tried really quick today to do my DIY Starfish Bout and this is all I came up with so far. Maybe it will be inspirational to you (maybe not, LOL) but its a work in progress

                  I havent glued anything together yet bc I want to spray paint the starfish white. I'm not sure if I like the blingy part, I may pick something different to stick in there. Then I have to figure out how to wrap the bottom, although at Michaels I saw that green tape that florist use so I may have to pick some up and experiment.

                    I agree with someone else who said to pull the leaf down and use a smaller starfish on the stem of the flower.

                    I think the flower and stem are beautiful but in order to make the bout not so big, you will need to make something smaller.

                    Great effort - I am not even going to TRY to do a bout.

                      Jenny - I have some pretty small starfish if you want me to send you some. How many would you need? I am going away for the weekend (a DW!) right after work, but I can check when I get back how many I have that still have all five points. They seem like they might be smaller then yours are. (At least they seem smaller in my head)

                      Here is a pic from ebay of ones that I have
