Flowers for Men – Boutonnieres

A boutonniere is a floral decoration worn by men, typically a single flower or bud. Boutonniere is the French word for buttonhole. Boutonnieres are usually reserved for special occasions such as proms, funerals, homecomings, and weddings. Traditionally, a boutonniere is worn on the left lapel. While in the past the flower itself was often a carnation, today many different varieties of flowers are used. Different colors and flowers may also be chosen to better coordinate with whatever else is being worn. Roses, orchids, berries, grasses, herbs, and so on.

Shown here are some recent examples of boutonnieres we have done.
