About Us


Picture perfect everytime!

With three teenagers in High School, all attending school dances, I realized that the traditional straight pin used to attach boutonnieres and corsages, was very difficult and outdated.  Everyone at the dance pre-parties struggled as well.  They complained of pricked fingers, damaged clothing, and crooked flowers.  

In 2006, I set out to find a solution to the problem and invented Boutonniere Buddy…the easier, faster, more reliable way of attaching a boutonniere.  Our overwhelming success with Boutonniere Buddy has led us to expand our product line to include Corsage Buddy and Magnet Buddy. There are now 6 patented styles to choose from (3 tie-clasp style pins, and 3 different styles of magnets), creating a complete line of floral magnets and pins under our company name Designs by Buddy, LLC.  

Designs by Buddy continues to deliver perfect boutonnieres for thousands of dances, weddings and other special occasions!  Protect your pictures, and put the fun back into attaching a boutonniere to your prom date!!
