Floral Accessories

We've been giving a lot of thought lately to the corsage, especially as it pertains to mother of the bride corsage. More and more moms have been opting out of them and choosing instead to hold a small nosegay or to even forgo flowers altogether.

We think that's a shame, especially as there are some other delightful options!

This sweet little brooch might be short on flowers but is long on style! What's not to love about a dainty dragonfly with the most delicate of flower accents?

A duo of orchids with accents of variegated lily grass and grevillea foliage, is made all the more charming with a sparkly oval of rhinestones. More like a great piece of jewelry and less like your standard corsage, this would be a great accent to any outfit.

This is my favorite! I definitely don't think of myself as a pearl person, but I took this one home and wore it out several times over the course of the week. (keeping it sealed in a plastic bag in the fridge)

This piece can be worn in the hair...which I did repeatedly...

...but it's equally at home on the shoulder. This is a look that is both modern and vintage at the same time. It's really less about being a corsage than it is about being an adornment to complement an entire look.

A flirty, feathery hairpiece...

...although there's no reason this couldn't be done without a comb so it could be worn on a dress.

So it's definitely time to rethink the corsage! What do you think? Would you wear these looks, would your mom?!

Thanks! We need clients to get over their reluctance to wear body flowers - a corsage doesn't have to scream "I went on a cruise in 1957!"
