Last weekend our local school held it's prom
here are a few corsages we did featuring orchids.
These beautiful flowers are a great prom flower choice since they have such a unique
shape and they are also light weight. As you can see they come in lots of great colors,
including the dyed blue we used in our corsages.
Here's a design we did using bear grass to enclose the blooms. We added a few of the
stick on rhinestones to the arching grass accenting the rhinestone bracelet.
Another corsage with a braided ribbon accent.
We also added orchids to roses and freesia to create an interesting mixture of
form and texture.
Another great orchid for prom- these are a bit larger than Dendrobium orchids
so all you need are a couple to make a stunning corsage...
We used mini cymbidiums in our corsages.
Cymbidium orchids come in a variety of colors as well, although if you want blue, you'll need to stick with Dendrobium orchids.
So if you want something different for your corsage, try orchids!
Talk to your local florist well before your prom, because these flowers usually need to
be special ordered.
