Succulents make perfect boutonnieres and are so easy to make!
To start, you will need about a 1-inch succulent in diameter to make the perfect boutonniere. Succulents typically come between 2 and 2.5 inches in diameter, so you may have to remove outer petals to adjust the size. Most succulents will have little-to-no stem, so to make sure they stay in place you will want to create a stem using a wooden stick, pin or floral wire.
Next, choose some complimentary stems. For this, I chose a blush spray rose and a stem of blue thistle. If you are going for a green look, eucalyptus or even baby's breath should pair well.
To arrange, crisscross the stems while keeping the succulent at the forefront of the arrangement. Secure all stems by wrapping green floral tape around them. While wrapping, adjust the flower positions to ensure that the boutonniere will lay flat against a suit jacket.
Lastly, wrap with twine or ribbon to cover the exposed floral tape.
That should be it! Store the boutonniere in a small cup of water or in a water tube until it's showtime.
