Lily Corsage

Alstromeria and Asiatic Lilies

Here are some beautiful lily corsages. Size usually determines the kind of lily you choose. Oriental lilies are larger. Plan on using just one bloom or the size would overpower both a wrist and shoulder.

Lily varieties come in so many different colors that it'll be hard for you to choose! From bright Asiatics in orange to soft lavender tipped alstromeria - you're sure to find something that you love.

Be sure to finish with a misting of Finishing Touch. on every corsage you make. This seals the petals and prevents early dehydration of your decorative flowers.

This Alstromeria corsage is coupled with a standard and sweethear rose. Notice each flower stem has been wrapped individually with corsage tape. It is backed with a feathery fern called plumosa.

Keep your Oriental stargazer lilies to one bloom and a bud. These lilies are rather large in diameter and the scent is strong. So don't make it for anyone who has allergies.

Insert it gently - these delicate flowers crush easily.

A few dendrobiums orchids give a tropical flair to this corsage.
