Does size matter?
Lapel man has returned to model some more buttonholes for us, and answer the eternal question, does size matter?
Nobody wants their beau to look like a clown, but nor would you want him in something insignificant. Particularly if he is of beefcake proportions.
1.Peonies, come in many sizes and not all varieties are suitable, but i love them as buttonholes, teamed with geranium leaves. Joy.
2.A single delphinium flower and contrast ribbon. Statement enough for any chap.
3.Love-in-a-mist and rosemary, Lapel man declared this to be a bit hippy for his tastes, but i like it.
4.Scabiosa and mint and string on long stems, balances out a small head. flower head, not man's head.
5.Hydrangea. This is clown territory. Stay away.
Also if you ever pin a gerbera on your man, we will never be friends. Ever.
Whilst we are on the subject, longevity in a buttonhole is overrated.
Most boys wear it on their jacket, and wear their jacket for the ceremony, photos, and then take off jacket. So if you want to use something very delicate, use it, and if it lasts until the first dance, brilliant, and if it doesn't does it matter? and don't ever use a florist that makes them the night before. Getting up at 4am to make buttonholes is what you pay us for.
In the war of aesthetic Vs. longevity, always choose aesthetic.
Bon weekend folks, do you have fun things planned? Are you watching the grand prix? I have this song on repeat, practicing the tango.
