A friend of mine asked me to whip up a wrist corsage and boutonniere on Saturday for her son’s Prom. Her son’s date’s dress was red and sparkly silver, hence the red roses and silvery ribbons. Oh, and don’t forget the silvery glitter and red rhinestone bracelet bling!
Usually I make a ton of them during the dance seasons, but now that I have Ella, I only do them for friends and family.
They are fun to make and I always have fun getting creative with them, sometimes more creative than others. Although this one is pretty traditional, the high school kids usually come up with some crazy/fun combinations of themes and colors.
I made the boutonniere to match the corsage.
Ella and I were both sick on Saturday, so these were about all I got accomplished. That, and sleep. Lots of sleep. There was something so luxurious about sleeping while Ella napped, even if it was because I was sick.
I hope you are enjoying your week so far!
