Calla Lilies Prom Corsages

It’s prom season and what even better are beautiful elongated corsages made with calla lilies purchased from my local Tom Thumb grocery store.  Lilies are in season which also make these corsages budget friendly.  This is my second time making corsages since most of my creations are flower arrangements.  I created these 2 corsages for a co-worker who had requested some special corsages for her son’s prom date and military ball date.

Since this was my second time making corsages, there are bound to be some complications.  I had gotten a little worried when both corsages came out a little longer in length than I had envisioned.  I originally had imagined 6-8 inches but both corsages came to about 10-12″ in length.  But even at 10-12″ long, these corsages still manage to stay put onto the corsage slap bracelet holder.  It all worked out in the end and both corsages were well loved by 2 special young ladies.

Enjoy!

Lunar New Year Flower Arrangements

Yes, I’m 4 months late on posting this.  Lunar New Year 2017 has come and gone! Better late than never!

Tet as my family would call this awesome holiday comes by once a year marking the start of a new year. 2017 is year of the Rooster/Chicken. How do know if you are a Rooster? If you were just born or turning 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72…keep adding 12… then 2017 is your lucky year. Your Zodiac animal repeats every 12 years.

SOME FACTS ABOUT LUNAR NEW YEAR

  • The most important social and economic holiday through out all Asian countries. This holiday is even more important than Christmas.
  • Lunar New Year (Chinese New Years or Spring Festival) is marked by visits to family and friends, special meals, fireworks, and gift giving.
  • This holiday is a time to honor household and heavenly deities as well as ancestors. It was also a time to bring family together for feasting.
  • Elders will give out money to children in little red envelopes called lai see for good fortune. In fact, many of the rites carried out during this period were meant to bring good luck to the household and long life to the family, particularly to the parents.
  • The entire house should be cleaned before New Year’s Day.  On New Year’s Eve, all brooms, brushes, dusters, dust pans and other cleaning equipment are put away.  Sweeping or dusting should not be done on New Year’s Day for fear that good fortune will be swept away.

My flower design inspiration for this post was inspired by this wonderful event called Tet (Lunar/Chinese’s New Year).

Traditionally during the 3 days of Tet/Lunar New Year, I am suppose to bring a large serving platter consisting of various food/treats to my relative’s house for the gathering, but this year I am bring flowers. Who doesn’t love a beautiful fresh flower arrangement!  Enjoy and Happy Lunar New Year!

It’s a “Bouncing Baby Boy” Flower Themed Designs!

I must admit that making flower arrangements for baby boys are much harder than baby girls! This is probably because finding flowers in shades of blue can be a major challenge. Fear no more, here are 3 baby boy themed flower arrangements that will definitely be a hit. All flowers were purchased from my local Krogers in Wylie and Plano, Texas.

WRAPPED FLOWER BOUQUET, FLOWERS IN A BOX  & WHITE FLOWERS IN A ROUND VASE

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

#1 – BABY BLUE BOY CHIC WRAPPED FLOWER BOUQUET

FLOWERS

  • white roses
  • mini white carnations
  • white alstroemeria
  • willow branches

SUPPLIES

  • pruner
  • kraft paper
  • light blue table vinyl cover
  • floral wire
  • Optional: cellophane paper or use the mylar wrapping cover that was used to hold the flowers when purchased from the store.
  • rubberbands
  • 2-3 paper towels soaked in water
  • 1 sandwich size ziplock bag
  • clear tape
  • white ribbon
  • water spray bottle

ASSEMBLING THE FLOWERS

  • Clean and remove all outer petals from roses and remove 50-75% of all leaves and foliage from all flower stems.
  • Set up your flower work space by sorting each flowers by same kind: roses with roses and carnations with carnations….etc
  • Start the bouquet by building a bottom foundation using the white alstroemerias and mini white carnations. I always use filler flowers for this step because I want the prettier flowers such as the roses to be the focal/center point.
  • Then select about 3-4 roses and stack them on top of the bottom layer ensuring to place the roses 1-2″ down from the very top of the previous layer. The goal is to build the bouquet by stacking and placing the flowers 1-2″ from the previous layer. (REFER TO EXAMPLES BELOW)
  • Keep repeating layers until you have used up all the flowers. The amount of flowers per layer will decrease as more and more layers get added.
  • The amount of layers will varies depending on the size of your bouquet and the amount of flowers you want to use within the bouquet.

  • When flowers are completely assembled, use either twine or rubber bands to hold the bouquet in place.
  • Now cut the flower stems evenly to your desire length. I like cutting mine 4″ to 6″ from the flower base of the final layer.
  • Soak about 2-4 paper towels in water. Wrapped the wet paper towels around all stems of the bouquet.
  • Use a sandwich size bag or larger and place stem of flowers wrapped in the wet towels inside the bag in order to keep the flowers hydrated.
  • Optional: You can add some wet floral foam to the flower stems 1st then wrap the wet paper towels around the floral foam covering the stems. The floral foam method will keep the flowers hydrated for longer periods of time.
  • Use several layers of clear tape to wrap and seal the top of the ziplog bag around the bouquet.
  • Optional: You can use clear cellophane paper or the same mylar bag from your flower purchase to make an initial flower wrap of the bouquet. This process reinforces the bouquet and catches any water that may leak out from the wet paper towels/floral foam.

  • Cut 2 pieces of the table vinyl cover into a square about 1.5 times the size of the bouquet. You can cut smaller layers if wrapping around the bouquet with multiple layers.
  • Cut 1 long narrow piece of kraft paper ranging about 12″ in width.  Then cut an additional 3 smaller pieces about 6″ in width.
  • REFER TO EXAMPLES BELOW for paper cutting and placement order.

  • Wrap bouquet following the order sequin of the 2nd diagram above then use a ribbon to tie bouquet together.
  • Your wrapped flower bouquet is now complete.
  • For a final touch, spray flowers with fresh water from a bottle. This process help hydrates the flowers faster since the bouquet is not placed into a water filled vase.

STEPS

  • Soak 1 block & a half block of wet floral foam for about an hour or more prior to arranging the flowers.
  • Line photo box with 2-3 sheets of plastic table cover. Don’t worry if the table cover extend pass the photo box because it will be trimmed at the very end.

#3 – WHITE FLOWERS IN A ROUND VASE

FLOWERS

  • white hydrangeas
  • white oriental lilies
  • green treat balls (dianthus)
  • white roses
  • aspidistra tea leaf ribbons
  • cypress green branch (I am guessing on this one!)

ASSEMBLING THE FLOWERS

  • I always pick the biggest flowers (white hydrangeas) to arrange first in order to set the stage.
  • Next add the flowers with the most height which were the white lilies.
  • Fill in the rest of the flower base with the green tick balls.
  • Now add the white roses in groups of 3’s and place near the green tick balls.
  • At this point you can call it quite but I felt it needed more WOW so I added the cypress branch (I think it’s call this!) and the aspidistra tea leaves to fill in the gaps around the top.
