Preserving boutonniere

lstatonAugust 17, 2007

I was married in September of 2002. My grandfather died on Thanksgiving of that year. The boutonniere he wore at my wedding was found still pinned to his suit jacket. How can I preserve it to keep it from crumbling?

Now I am no expart but this is what i do to preserve roses.

I am very sorry for your loss:(

When I get a fresh bokay of roses I wait to dry them until they are almost brownish in color and droopy. Then I either take one rose at a time or the whole thing and hang it upside down as a whole. "Sometimes there are special one's you just wanna keep" I let them hang for about 2-3, weeks till crispy. I then snip off the long stem and place them in a jar. I got creative one day and hade a Rose scented candle and i put my roses in with the remains of the candle! Oh boy does it smell good!!
