Homecoming Corsages

Fall means homecoming dances. I took some orders for corsages this year. It was so much fun I hope to do many more in the spring.

A huge pop of color for a vibrant bride

Yes, I do flowers. I absolutely love wrapping up a bride bouquet. The bride selected dahlias and wanted a mix of oranges for her bouquet. Each color played off the others so beautifully. I added some soft, slivery lambs ear, bright pear-green foliage and a bit of very dark green and the colors and textures just jumped out in vivid glory. Just perfect for a late summer wedding.
