My dad used to get my mom and me corsages for Easter Sunday. The corsages pinned to our dresses, and I wasn’t a fan. I was so afraid it would poke me, and let’s be honest, sometimes it did. My mom’s corsage was always a green orchid and mine was usually carnations. I love my dad for this sweet sentiment each year, but I hate carnations to this day.
Easter corsages are not as in vogue as they once were, but corsages are still a requirement for high school formals and proms and even some weddings. They have made their way to the wrist, leaving the only pinning needed to the boutonniere on a guy’s suit.
But now there is a new corsage in town, and I have to say, I love it! It’s the ring corsage. Can I just wear one to dinner some random Saturday night?! Who knows, maybe I will get some for Easter for my girls and for me. I may try to suggest this for the formals and proms they have coming up, as well.
Take a look and see if you are as enchanted with these little darlings as we are at StyleBlueprint. They are modern, pretty and add a fabulous touch of fancy, fresh whimsy to finish off the prom ensemble. So if you are a mom of a teen old enough to go to a formal or prom, or you are that teen, or you want to walk down memory lane with me and wish the ring corsage was available for you, check these out.
(I’m also speculating that these are going to somehow wiggle their way into weddings. They are just too adorable not to.)
We asked a couple of florists for examples of ring corsages they are making for customers, and look at what they whipped up!
Our friends at Blooms, in LaGrange, KY, put together three examples of ring corsages:
This next batch was made by floral designer Glenn Mask at Birmingham, AL’s Dorothy McDaniel’s Flower Market:
What do you think? Do these make you as happy as they make us?!
