Velvet Ribbons

by Cindy on April 11, 2011

a buttonhole finished with velvet ribbon detailingI just love using velvet ribbons when I’m creating boutonnieres and bridal bouquets. You can see in the photo here (left) how I have used a deep red velvet ribbon to finish off this boutonniere or buttonhole.

I think velvet ribbons fit so well with the recent trend for vintage themed wedding flowers. I love adding velvet to the bouquet handle of bride’s and bridesmaid’s wedding posy bouquets.

I often thread thin velvet ribbon through diamante brooches (see one I recently did, photo below left) or pearl buttons to make unique bouquet detailing that’s really special for the bride.

I always choose coordinating coloured ribbon that matches the colour of the flowers in the handtied  posy bouquet.
