i heart martha (always have)

I have a confession to make, I own every single Martha Stewart Wedding Magazine. Not only do I own them but I move them every single time I move to a new apartment. Over the weekend I got the Winter 2009 edition and found a few great projects.

We are still deciding on what the guys will wear but how adorable is this suit with a BOW boutonniere. The new magazine shows a few cool bow inspired boutonniere.

(from Martha Stewart: To make this boutonniere, wrap ribbon around three fingers 7 times. Holding lightly at center, fan out loops into a circle. Pin to secure, and apply fabric glue between layers. Let dry, and remove pin.)

This could be really sweet for a mother-of-the-bride or mother-of-the-groom.

This screams grandma to me! BUT in a good way ;)

Find all of the how-to's here: Martha Stewart Weddings website


  1. I have every single Martha Stewart Weddings magazine as well. And, as you know, I am not even engaged or married! I have moved over 30 times and they have survived every single move. Other things in my life...not so lucky.

  2. cool tux/suit, bow tie, and boutonniere...something i'd keep as a keepsake! of course, i'm a packrat. love and miss ya!!
