Phalaenopsis Orchid Boutonniere

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, a boutonnière is a floral decoration worn by men, typically a single flower or bud. The word comes from the French word for buttonhole, which is the British term for a boutonnière.

This week’s boutonniere is classic and elegant.  There is no need for lots of extra elements, just a hint of greenery. This gorgeous bloom stands alone.
