Cat's animal-themed brooch bouquet #Favors & Flowers#animals#bouquet#brooch bouquet#non-floral bouquet April 22 2010 | Megan Finley Horowitz meggyfin Remember a while ago when we blew everyone's mind with the bouquet made from vintage brooches and baubles? Well, guess who shot a wedding where the bride carried an animal-themed brooch bouquet! I did! The bride, Cat, found all the pieces herself, mostly from Goodwills (she admitted to me that her talents do not lie in the craftiness, but she does have that convenient knack of finding awesome stuff on the cheap). And most of the brooches have special significance to her, especially the animal ones… Including a parrot in honor of their pet parrot, Eggbert. The pink dog in honor of one of their pups, Honeypie (aka. Tikka, aka. Chunk). …and this fox guy in honor of their other dog, Ollie, who resembles a fox. The only thing more adorable than this bouquet, is Cat herself. Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here. Edited text* Enter your suggested copyedit here.

I would know.. I was there. Reply That is awesome and inspiring! Never seen anything like that. wow. Reply LOVE IT. I'm in the process of making a brooch bouquet for mine in October, and it's nice to see one of these things actually out in the wild! Reply It was pretty damn amazing. Reply Looks fantastic! What a great idea. Reply Holy crap I love this! STEAL STEAL. I was trying to think of a good non flower option. This is beautiful and from a distance doesn't look obvious. Animal theme would be perfect for us seeing as I'm an animal sciences major and the boy is awfully attached to his cat. Did she collect the brooches from antique shops or what? Reply More of the details including where she got most of the brooches and who helped her make this beauty is over here. Reply eek! i love it!! Reply OMG! I adore it! Did she use flower foam to fasten the brooches? *gapes in awe* Reply Beautiful Cat, beautiful animal brooches! Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
