OK since spring has fully sprung I've remembered how much I love love love flowers. I can't believe I've been considering scrapping flowers altogether. But I also love my buttons! So I need to find a compromise in the middle.
Maybe floral bouquets for me and my bridesmaids but then buttons for centerpieces? or the other way around? Orrr, some combination of buttons and real flowers in bouquets and centerpieces? I dunno.
But my fantasy is just going to some floral vendor at a farmer's market the day of our wedding and grabbing some combination of springy awesome flowers and making bouquets on the spot. Because honestly what I Want to do is wander around and pick little blooming crocuses and daffodils and forsythias from random peoples yards.. but pretty sure I would run into some objections if I tried that...
That picture isn't Exactly what I have in mind but something like that. Just a really colorful awesome pretty mix of super springy flowers.
Here is the tester button bouquet I put together recently. I was just making a bunch of button flowers and decided to try to put them together into some semblance of a bouquet, just to see what it might look like. Let me tell you, it was a lot more difficult than I expected! Those buttons on floral wire do not behave the way I'd like them to. Also I think it looks a little messy and silly. My mother thinks it looks awesome; I think it needs a little more work.
