Has the recent cloudy, rainy weather left you feeling gloomy? I know I sure have felt like staying in my PJ's and in my bed a little more than normal lately. To get out of my funk I went on a flower picture hunt. Check out these awesome wedding inspiration ideas I put together. Guaranteed to chase away that gloomy feeling and maybe even spark your creativity. Let me know your favorite picture on the board.
So the other day, my husband, who by the way is a devoted fisherman, says to me,
"Would you ever use a spinner in a boutonniere?"
After I finished laughing at him and actually thought about what he said, I started to like the idea. For those of you who are unfamiliar with fishing, a spinner is a type of fishing lure, like the one shown on the left. I can honestly say that fishing lures are one item I have never been asked to use, but my husbands question makes me wonder if anyone would actually want a fishing lure(s) accenting their flowers. Of course I understand this idea is not for everyone, and even some grooms-to-be may have a difficult time convincing the bride-to-be or vise versa. But I could see this idea as a unique way to add your personal touch to your wedding flowers. It's really not that far of a stretch from all the other items used to add "bling" to flowers. Fishing lures come in so many colors you would most likely find one to coordinate. And if added to the boutonnieres the men would have a keepsake they may actually use! OK, so maybe my husband on to something?
So I am asking for your help, please take a second and vote in my poll. Let me know if you like the idea of fishing lures and flowers.
With prom on my mind I wanted to share some great flower ideas for guys! All to often we forget the guys, it's easy to do. Most guys are not flower lovers, some are even flowers haters but truthfully most guys just don't give flowers a second thought, unless they are buying them for someone else. Boutonnieres are wonderful for giving guys a chance to express themselves through floral art while still letting them feel manly. Here some some great examples I put together for inspiration. Do any of them catch your eye?
