Buttons for a bride

This weekend gone one of my closest friends got married, and I was a bridesmaid which was very exciting as I have never done it before.  Early on in planning her wedding she had seen some button bouquets online and thought they were lovely and asked me if I could recreate some for the bridesmaids.  Buttons also featured on the invitations and the cake.  Everything looked fantastic and the day went off wonderfully.

 Here are the three bouquets I made, two for adult bridesmaids (me and her sister) and one smaller one for her husband's 6 year old niece.

I'm quite pleased with how they looked (and fortunately so was the bride!) and enjoyed making them so may be doing some more in future for other occasions.  I will put together a 'how I made' post later in the week.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
