    Ok girls! Just finished all of my bouquets and boutonnieres and thought I would share!

     

    First off, I bought orange and white tiger lilies at the end of spring last year for a super low price at Joann's.  I think for all of my AHR centerpiece flowers and bouquet flowers together cost me less than $30!!!  So I definitely suggest looking out for sales.  I just bought the extra white lilies I needed for my bouquet at Michaels on sale and they were $.89 for a bunch of 6 flowers!  Can't beat it!

     

    As far as putting them together goes, I just cut the bunches apart, put together the flowers until the arrangement looked nice, and wrapped it with floral tape (AC Moore or any craft store).  Then I wrapped white ribbon down the stem and back up (secured at the top before and after the wrap with a plain silver sewing pin).  Then I took orange ribbon and cris-crossed it down the stems, tying it in the back on the bottom when I was done.  My mom put a little clear elmers glue across the criss-crosses in the back of the bouquet to make sure nothing shifted, and you can't even tell its there.

     

    Honestly, there were pretty easy and extremely inexpensive to do myself.  Just for the bouquets, I can probably estimate that I paid about $20 to get 5 girls bouquets and my bouquet done -- and I had them all done in a matter of a few hours!

     

    and finally....some pics!!  :o)

    For the guys' boutonnieres we just bought a basic boutonniere flower stem at AC Moore for maybe $1 or so, and hot glued white and blue ribbon, the starfish and a bin back on them. 

     

    The guys are wearing orange shirts, so they should stand out nicely:

    • Congrats Jszy10! The bouquets are beautiful...I really like the orange flowers! The starfish boutonnieres are cute and unique. Love the fact that you did it so cheaply too.

        I absolutely love the starfish bouts!  And the orange and white bouquets look really nice and professionally done!
