How Do I Make A Corsage For Prom?

It is the time of year that all juniors and seniors have been waiting for, prom season! We know there is so much to worry about at a time like this…like the promposal, the dress, the tuxedo, where you will have dinner, how you will get from event to event, friends that you will meet with, pictures, hair, makeup, and the list goes on and on! One thing you can cross off your list is the corsage and boutonniere!

How does creating your own unique corsage and boutonniere with faux flowers sound? Like a lot of work and money? We can assure you that this is not the case!  DIY is inexpensive and and SO easy. Forever lasting corsages and boutonnieres are a great way to remember the last stretch of your high school days. Fill a room with all of your friends, snacks, and laughter while you craft your own corsages and boutonnieres. Sure, you can always go with the real deal but why spend all of the money for flowers that dry out and end up smushed in a box somewhere. Using our faux flowers, you will be able to keep this beautiful memory in it’s perfect and gorgeous condition forever!
