On Friday I discovered some beautiful wedding bouquets that were not made of flowers, but of buttons instead. I became really absorbed in this and discovered that buttonholes/boutonnières and corsages existed too, also made from buttons and florists wire.

I'd never heard of the word boutonnière before so was pleased to learn about them:
"A boutonnière is a floral decoration worn by men, typically a single flower or bud. The word comes from the French word for buttonhole, which is the British term." (Source.)

Here are some more of the gorgeous creations that I found, most are just buttons, but some I found were made from felt flowers too - see bottom photo.
