Step 1. Decide on the placement of the boutonniere. Hold it against the suit, centered on the left lapel.
Step 2. Using your finger to keep the boutonniere in place, fold the lapel so you can see the back side of it. Be sure not to smash the flowers.
Step 3. Push the pin through boutonniere at a perpendicular angle, making sure to catch the stems with the pin. A second pin may be used if needed.
Step 4. Secure placement and adjust as needed. Return the lapel to its proper place and confirm the boutonniere feels secure. Make sure the pin is not visible from the front side.
