Celebration Boutonniere is a First-Class Forever stamp intended for mailings that require a little something special. It can be used on RSVP envelopes often enclosed with wedding invitations. It is also ideal for party invitations, thank-you notes, announcements or any other correspondence.
The boutonniere is an arrangement of ranunculus, with floral accents of succulents, Astrantia, Berzelia and clubmoss greenery.
For centuries, boutonnieres — or buttonhole flowers, as they were called in Britain — were a staple of a well-dressed man’s outfit. For most of the 20th century, a single flower pinned to a lapel or inserted into a jacket buttonhole was part of a sophisticated, debonair man’s wardrobe. Still very fashionable today, boutonnieres are worn at weddings by the groom, groomsmen, father of the groom, and best man and at other special occasions, including proms, anniversaries, retirement parties or military memorial services.
The Celebrate Boutonniere stamps are being issued as Forever® stamps. These Forever stamps will always be equal in value to the current First-Class Mail® one-ounce rate.
