Call me old fashioned, but I love wearing a corsage. There is just something so feminine about them. I especially love to wear a corsage on Mother’s Day to church (This year, I was the only mother wearing one!!). But actually, if you think about it, there’s lots of occasions where a corsage is appropriate and cherished. Besides Mother’s Day, there are showers, weddings, and anniversary parties where wearing a corsage adds a special touch for the one being honored. And how fun to present a handmade corsage to wear rather than a purchased corsage from a floral shop. Making your own corsage is easy, fun, and very cost effective.
I actually first learned how to put a corsage together when I took a floriculture class in high school. I had totally forgotten that I had taken the class until a friend had asked me to help make corsages for her daughter’s wedding. Under the tutelage of an experienced flower lady and dear friend, I relearned the skills not used for many years. It was so much fun– and gratifying too!!
Knowing how to create a flower corsage or boutonniere can really come in handy. Not only to save money, but to create a unique design all your own. Presenting a guest of honor with a corsage or boutonniere on their big day just makes a special occasion all the more special.
