If you have a thing for bud vases, you will fall in love with these boutonnieres. You can now pin your bud vase to your lapel and wear it with you wherever you go, and you’ve got Omer Polak to thank for that.
Using a glass blowing technique and brass hardware, artist Omer Polak handmade a collection of boutonnieres that look just like mini bud vases. The accessory was designed to retain water, which keeps the flower fresh. Plus, it’ll keep you smelling nice all day long. Omer even suggests combining sprigs of herbs with your flower for a unique ‘n’ yummy scent.
You may recognize the name Omer Polak from the colorful Dough Blow project. Unfortunately, these boutonnieres aren’t edible like his dough balloons, but they are available for purchase! These $30 cuties are unisex and completely versatile. Put one on your handsome groom, dress up your prom date’s tux or add some floral to your everyday look. Plus, you get to use any flower you want. If you ask us, this is the ultimate hipster accessory.
Check out how sweet it looks when styled with a denim button up.
#DidYouKnow? A flower in a breast pocket is actually an old school cultural symbol for wealth and fertility, which is where these sweet embellishments got their inspiration. We love the look of an out-of-the-box boutonniere, especially because they look just so gosh darn adorable.
