I love the corsages which Laura Ingalls Gunn of Decor to Adore makes; here is one of my baskets with her corsage, for holiday. Be sure to visit Laura's Etsy shop HERE for wonderful Christmas merchandise...
This week we had a girls' party for Christmas, about 15 of us. I wanted to bring something special and Laura was my inspiration; could I adapt her corsages? Blame it on that ol' Pomegranate Martini....yum it was delish, and it set the tone for a totally fun party~
I made wrist corsages for everyone, assembled fast right before the party~
I used two bunches of $5 spray roses and greens from the garden, tied in the middle with florist tape; and topped with various Christmas figures from last year's gingerbread house~
a little tulle was pretty~
I brought a few salt& sugared pinecones, gathered from our walks~
this Santa and deer was one of my fav's; with a few Toyon berry clusters and sugared roses;
Everyone LOVED the corsages; women get crazy with flowers~
on their foreheads, on their necks, let's have a PARTY!
Betsy, so cute!
I love this shot though it's a little blurry with no flash; she is as adorable as this~
I loved the corsages so much, they are going on my Christmas eve table, in another version.
the girls wrapped the corsages around envelopes too~
and then we had a gift exchange and it got crazy, YAY!~
