Fall Boutonnieres

I needed to practice making some boutonnieres, so I came up with these little guys for fall.  I wanted to create something rustic and modern.  For the first one, I used a scabosia pod as the focal flower and mixed in a bloom from my chive plant along with a leaf from a Japanese maple tree and a ruffled geranium leaf all from my garden.  For the second one I chose a succulent for the focal flower and added in arborvitae and again a chive flower.  I wrapped up the rustic feel with a bit of twine.

Hi there!  Welcome to my blog, Northern Bloom!  Maybe you know me from my old blog Cupcakes & Confetti or maybe you're a new reader, either way, I'm glad you found me here.  This is where I'll be blogging about my love of floral design and other lovely things.
