10 Flower Brooch Pins You’ll Re-Pin Forever

Several months ago, I bought a few flower brooches in light pink, ivory, and grey. I soon found myself pinning them everywhere: my scarf, my jacket, my cardigan – I even place them on a pretty china plate on my dresser because they look so pretty as-is. So, I thought, wouldn’t flower brooches look incredible on everything wedding? I pictured flower brooch pins added to bridesmaid dresses for the perfect pop of color, pinned to a gorgeous satin ribbon and wrapped as a wrist corsage, flower brooches pinned to sashes, bridal cardigans, and clutch purses. I even pictured them pinned to shoes as flower shoe clips. So, when we spotted the new fabric brooches collection at The Blooming Thread (featured at Emmaline Bride in The Marketplace) we knew you’d fall in love with them, too. Imagine these flower brooch pins gifted in a delightful box, pinned to bridesmaid dresses, and re-worn on “girls nights” for years to come! Which one do you love most?
