Vintage button bouquets in action

As a crafter, I think there are few things more satisfying than knowing that one of your objects has been appreciated. Sure, the creating is fun, the sense of accomplishment when you complete a project is great, but knowing that you've made someone happy is just the best. I was lucky enough to feel that surge of satisfaction today when I received an email from one of my customers for whom I had created wedding bouquets and bouttonieres out of vintage buttons. She was sweet enough to send me photos of my work "in action" and I just had to share them with you.


The couple had chosen ivory, pool blue, and yellow as their colors and the end result is such a happy combo. How can you help but smile when you see it?



Here you see the bridesmaids' and the bride's bouquets. The bride had chosen a mix of ivory with touches of her accent colors, and mostly yellow with touches of blue and ivory for the bridesmaids.


The bridesmaids each carried a bouquet of 12 stems while the bride's bouquet had 28.



The groom and his groomsmen each had coordinating bouttonieres with reclaimed tan leather leaves.


Thank you, Carlee and Ryan, for allowing me to be a part of your special day. Congratulations!

That's wonderful! It makes all the late nights, pricked fingers, sore shoulders from hunching over all worthwhile.

What a happy day for the lucky couple!

Holly - you're absolutely right! It's one thing to be happy with your own work, but when someone else is...it's a great feeling.

T - thank you! They made some really unique and wonderful choices with their entire ceremony, the button bouquets were just a small part. So fun!
