Boutonnieres

A Boutonniere is a floral decoration usually worn by men, most typically a single flower, a bud or a small collection.  Boutonniere is a  French word, which translated loosely means “buttonhole.”  The flower itself was once often white or red.  Today’s boutonniere is color selected to match the outfit of the gentleman or his date.

Traditionally, a boutonniere is worn on the left lapel of the jacket.  These flowers are often reserved for the most special of occasions, such as a prom, a special dance, homecoming, a wedding or a funeral.

Look for the image number in the upper left or right hand corner of our photos and make a note.  We can then discuss options with you.
