I need to start logging on when I look at the DIY forum.. I saw your post a couple hours after you posted it and didn’t say anything!

 

I actually quite love your boutonniere! I think the greenery is fine – if I had to nitpick it I would say stick with a softer greenery as the stemming through the leaves is distracting to me against the soft roses. Pending the guy they may or may not want a bow though! I think your blue is a very pretty contrast to the orange rose 🙂

 

Great job overall =D

dont be discouraged!! You were doing great before! I do think the boutonnieres are lovely!

Is there something specific your having trouble with?

If you just want suggestions these are the only ones I have, though I do think they are quite lovely as they are now:

 Remove 1 leaf of greenery or move them both to the same side or remove 1 rose – it just seems a slight bit bulky at the moment.

Leave out the bow and make it a singular wrap.
