DIY Herbal Bouttonnieres

Herbs are casual and aromatic and perfect for a late summer or fall wedding. As far as ingredients go, the sky is the limit! Here I’ve incorporated blueberries with lavender thyme, oregano and sage and wrapped them with a sweet dotted ribbon for contrast. The best part is that the boutonnieres could be dried and used for cooking later, making them completely Eco-friendly! Click “more” below to see the rest of this project…

You will need:
13 small stems of herbs  (choose varying colors and shapes)
3 stems of small berries

narrow ribbon

1: Start with a leaf stem like sage to be the backbone of your boutonniere. This leaf is just for support.
2. Place taller, lanky herbs like lavender and rosemary on top of the leaf. It’s OK for them to sit higher than the first leaf.
3. In front, place smaller rounder, herbs like oregano or thyme blossoms or fruit like blueberries. Heavier items always look nicer at the bottom with the leaner stems poking out the top.

5. Secure with floral tape,
6. Wrap the ribbon around the stems several times to disguise the floral tape while leaving a length of ribbon free to tie up the ribbon at the back of the boutonniere.
