7 lily of the valley
3 lily of the valley leaves
raffia pearl-tipped pin How to Assemble
Sweetly scented, delicate lily of the valley flowers make an unusual but attractive choice for a boutonniere. This arrangement is simple to create, because the flower stems don't need to be wired.
Give the flowers a good drink of water the day before, then trim off any leaves and simply gather seven stems of lily of the valley together in a mini spiral of flowers.
Add a couple of the leaves around the back of the boutonniere. Fold a third leaf in half and place it at the front of the arrangement.
Secure the boutonniere with a length of raffia tied in a neat knot. Use a pearl-tipped pin to attach it onto the lapel of a jacket.
