Flower Corsages

A mixed flower corsage contains several different varieties. You should usually choose a focal flower (the largest), perhaps secondary flowers (a little smaller) and then accent flowers (small additions such as Babies Breath, wax flower, asters or other small flowers).

Choose something that coordinates well with your color scheme, but don't feel that you have to include the most expensive flowers from your bouquet. The cost of flowers such as Calla lilies can add up quickly if you are trying to put them in every corsage.

Additions of various flower jewelry accents can add sparkle and shine to your designs. Check out the colored pearl pins, diamante pins and decorative colored wire for the newest in flower jewelry bling bling. There are also several different styles of flower bracelets to choose from.

Vibernum and Dusty Miller greens can be used successfully as either a corsage or a boutonniere. Use Oasis Floral Adhesive to wrap the leaf around the stem.

The combination of purple and hot pink can be a great choice for a striking contrast. Miniature carnations, lavender daisies and purple static make a corsage that holds up well - even in hot conditions.

This delicate flower design has white standard roses, hot pink spray roses, a touch of vibernum and an added interest of hypericum berries. Don't forget to seal your flowers with a good misting of Finishing Touch. It is also wise to give a water source to the roses by using corsage pickson the roses.
