This is a corsage designed and made by our student under the directions of our instructor during a real lesson in the classroom of California Flower Art Academy
. This picture was taken in the classroom showing the corsage pinned onto a student's regular classroom clothing. As seen from above explanation, boutonniere is a male version of corsage. According to Wikipedia boutonniere is explained as follows:
A boutonniere (French) is a floral decoration worn by men, typically a single flower or bud. Boutonniere is the French word for "buttonhole". While worn frequently in the past, boutonnières are now usually reserved for special occasions for which formal wear is standard, such as at proms, homecomings, funerals and weddings. Traditionally a boutonniere was worn pushed through the lapel buttonhole (on the left, the same side as a pocket handkerchief) and the stem is held in place with a loop at the back of the lapel.
Currently boutonnieres are usually reserved for special occasions for which formal wear is standard. Therefore it is often used at weddings, proms, homecomings and funerals. Especially at weddings and proms, it is quite popular together with regular corsages and writ-corsages worn by women.
