Composite Flower Corsage or a Turducken on Your Shoulder

So I made myself a spiffy corsage to wear to Worcester Magazine's Best of Worcester awards the other night. I always try to wear some kind of body flowers when I am at business events or functions - everything is a marketing opportunity!

Any how, I have been thinking about composite flowers off and on lately ever since Kuga Designs made a post about glamelias a couple weeks ago, and with all the prom work we've been doing I was inspired to play with adhesive for my corsage and do a composite flower.

This is what I came up with:



It's a few phalaenopsis orchids inside a gerbera daisy inside some feathers. Pretty cool, really bright, and makes quite a statement!

But, yes, it is a bit of a Franken-corsage, and all I can think of is the poultry dish called a Turducken - a turkey stuffed with a duck stuffed with a chicken. What do you think? Feathgerbchid? Too weird for words?!

Sprout said...

Ha! No reason you can't have both, right?

You should put these on hair clips. I would wear them all the time.

I love the idea of making a composite flower for a corsage or a hair accessory!
