I've just got to show you!

I have some super talented customers.  I'm in awe of some of the bouquets they create.This is one of my favorites from this year.........

It is a hand-wrapped tied bouquet of Amish cockscomb ... burgundy celosia with purple Verbena bonariensis in the center of the bouquet.  I think this is simple elegance at its best! Rich and regal looking.

And I love love love these!!!  Buttonnieres!  What a great lasting remembrance of a wedding! Obviously, their button jar is bigger and cooler than mine!  I only have tons of little white shirt buttons! 

And to carry the button theme a little further................... Buttons tossed like confetti!

(And just to let you know.... buttons would not stick to your underwear like confetti does.  I am totally aware of the sticking power of confetti!  Thanks, Nancy and Tom!!! :)  Eleven years of marriage and I still occasionally find confetti in my underwear drawer!)

A big thanks to Susan for sending the pictures to me.  I love seeing the bouquets and vignettes of the happy day.  And its wonderful to get great ideas that all of us can use!

I'll bet garage sales would be a great place to find old buttons waiting for reincarnation into buttoneers~
I agree...a great use for them, so special and unique and inexpensive!
