Homemade mini celebration flags as alternatives to floral buttonholes


Alternative mini flag buttonholes

A little bit of afternoon wedding inspiration for you – and this time it’s for the boys.  Floral buttonholes are lovely, but sometimes you want something a bit different, so I love this alternative idea for sweet celebration flags poked into the usher’s or groomsmen’s suit pockets.

They would be really easy to make from fun papers or even fabric wrapped around a cocktail stick, and I like the idea of the little celebratory messages written on them like ‘hooray!’ and ‘yippee!’ – even the thin ribbons are a nice additional touch.  Like this wedding, perhaps you could have a floral buttonhole made for the groom to make him stand out, and make these mini flag buttonholes for his best man and ushers.

I also did this feature on felt buttonholes with some fun ideas including tiny kite buttonholes, so do check out the full feature on cool and quirky buttonholes.

I’ll be back tomorrow morning with a round-up of my day with The Garden Gate Flower Company on the TNWC South West Roadtrip.  Have a lovely afternoon!
