I had a bunch of leftover blooms this weekend after wrapping up a project and couldn’t let them go to waste. So I whipped up a few mini bouquets and wedding boutonnieres.

Once I had them all together, it kind of reminded me of my own wedding. I DIYed all of the flowers for our wedding and we used a lot of yellow. And it got me thinking about DIY weddings and how charming but also a little crazy they can be!

So here’s a flower recipe for making your own spring mini bouquet and spring boutonnieres.

These flower recipes would be a good option for Easter and Mother’s Day too, not that anyone is actually thinking that afar in advance at the moment. ANYWAY…

To create a spring mini bouquet, you’ll only need a handful of stems (even less if you’re making boutonnieres). Here are a few floral recipes to get you started:

Spring Mini Bouquet Recipe #1

  • 3 ranunculus
  • 4 billy balls
  • 2 sprigs of yellow acacia
  • 1 tiny spring of rice flower

Spring Mini Bouquet Recipe #2

  • 4 ranunculus
  • 3 billy balls
  • 4 sprigs of yellow acacia
  • 2 tiny spring of rice flower

Spring Mini Bouquet Recipe #3

  • 7 ranunculus
  • 5 billy balls
  • 5 sprigs of yellow acacia
  • 4 tiny sprigs of rice flower

And for boutonnieres, you really only need 3 stems – one filler (like acacia), one structured filler (like billy balls), and one little bloom (like ranunculus). Super easy! You can wrap floral wire around the stems to keep them secure, then tie them off with a little velvet ribbon to cover up the wire.

When Jeff and I got married, we went even more basic than that and just did 1 or 2 bills balls wrapped with a tiny sprig of greenery and wrapped the stems in washi tape. So that’s another option as well. It can be really simple!

Spring Wedding Boutonniere Recipe #1

  • 1 sprig of acacia
  • 1 billy ball
  • 1 ranunculus

Spring Wedding Boutonniere Recipe #2

  • 1 – 2 bills balls
  • 1 sprig of greenery

Spring Wedding Boutonniere Recipe #3

  • 2 sprigs of rice flower
  • 1 ranunculus
  • 1 sprig of acacia

That’s it for now on the spring bouquets and boutonnieres. But before you go. I’m dying to know… Are you as ready for spring as I am? And would you ever (or did you ever) DIY stuff for your wedding?!

Aw, thanks Amy. I’ve been thinking about selling print for forever, but wasn’t sure if anyone would actually want them. Hmmm. Interesting.

These are so pretty! Where do you source the flowers from?

Ashley Evans | February 21st, 2018 at 8:58 am

Thanks Ashley. Are you local to Atlanta? I get the majority of my flowers for quick projects (like this one) from Hall’s, a wholesaler in Atlanta (O4W area). And then when I have a little more time between projects, I use flowermuse.com a lot. They have an awesome selection!

Very Nice Article,
This article provides very useful information about the bouquet and boutonnieres. Thanks for sharing the recipes for making the spring bouquet and boutonnieres. I liked your DIY floral arrangements. I also have visited a website named Whole Blossoms which provides varieties of flowers in bulk at the affordable rate.
