Wearing a boutonniere for a wedding, or special event, is something you don't do everyday. However, when the occasion arises, you must keep the boutonniere looking good. After the boutonniere's are fashioned, and before figuring out how to pin them on and where to place them, you may need to store them for a bit. There are ways to keep a boutonniere fresh and ready to use, even if there will be hours before wearing it at the wedding or event.

Things You'll Need

  • Spray bottle
  • Tissue
  • Small box or corsage bag
  • Portable cooler

Check the tape around the base of the flower and make sure it is snug. Spray the boutonniere lightly with some cool water.

Place the misted boutonniere on a tissue. Put the tissue with the boutonniere on it, into a box with a lid, or a corsage bag.

Tips & Warnings

  • Have a spare boutonniere on hand.
  • If you use a refrigerator to store your boutonniere, keep the enclosed box in the refrigerator drawer by itself, to avoid the gases from food.
  • Do not store your boutonniere in the freezer as this will kill it.
