Floral Pocket Squares
Next big thing?
Posted by: Bridgitte Brown Brooks
When Julia Rochelle told us she was planning a "Breakfast at Tiffany's" shoot and needed a boutonniere that was different and "out-of-the-box," I was nervous. I decided to contact our creative mastermind, Edy, over text immediately rather than have my brain start smoking from overthinking this. We threw some ideas back and forth about flowers/greenery/herbs that might read as more "masculine" and after nailing those down, we came across the idea of a floral pocket square. I LOVED it and I am now obsessed with the idea of a floral pocket square -- I think it takes something that can seem tired (boutonniere) and breathes new life into it!
Any florist knows that bouts are hard to keep on and after a few hugs on a big day, they're usually smooshed. I'm not promising that a pocket square will prevent that but it gives you a larger platform to attach flowers. Cut foam board (we recommend black) the width and depth of the pocket plus however much extra you want to have to build your design making it as small or large as you want. Start gluing with floral glue and voila!
We loved the concept of this shoot and we were honored to be involved! Cross your fingers all our brides/grooms start asking for floral pocket squares for their man-candy! Keep your eyes peeled for more photos from this shoot in the near future!
