How to make your own prom wrist corsage!


Supplies you will need:       Elastic corsage bracelet with metal fasteners

Floral tape

Floral Wire


Floral pruning sheers

Tea Roses and Accent foliage


Step 1: Prepare your accent foliage pieces and tea roses. Cut flower heads about ½ inch from bottom of rose hip. Clean up any outer rose petals that are torn or bruised.

Step 2. Take your floral wire and pierce into rose hip. Push wire through and fold over on either side.

Step 3. Using your floral tape, start wrapping, graduating down, from top of rose hip covering wire. Repeat step 2 and 3.

Step 4. Once you have all of your tea rose heads wired and taped. Cluster 3 of them together and wrap with tape, graduating down like you did in step 2.

Step 5. Add some accent foliage around your cluster to frame it out. Once you have your accents where you like them, wrap with your floral tape to join pieces together.

Step 5. At this point you can now attach your cluster to the bracelet. Lay the cluster on top of the metal fastener, so the top of the tea rose is resting on the top part of the metal fastener. Fold down the metal prongs so that they hold the cluster securely to the bracelet. Using your floral tape, wrap down the metal fastener and flower cluster.

Step 6. Make a 5-6 loop bow out of your ribbon. Fasten bow to wire. Lay bow tight to bottom of your flower cluster. Tape together.

Step 7. Add your 4th flower, and tape to cluster. Repeat for 5th flower.

Step 8. Add more accents and foliage where needed, and tape to cluster.

Step 9. Once you have your flowers finished and all wrapped together. You can finish your stems by wrapping your stem around a pen to curl it up.

Flowers:  We encourage our prom-goers to GO BOLD!  It’s time to have fun, and the flower colors can really be unique and wild.  Contrasting colors like purples and oranges or hot pink and blue really pop for photos, and they look great when coordinated with dress colors.  For those multicolor dresses, we often pull two or three of our client’s favorite colors in their dress and coordinate the flowers to that.

We create:

-Hand held bouquets – ranging from $50 to $150

-Wrist corsages – ranging from $35 -$50

-Boutonnieres – ranging from $10-$18

-Hair flowers – ranging from $10-$25

And we now offer flower jewelry!  You can wear a floral necklace, cuff bracelet or ankle bracelet to the prom!

Prom 2014

Prom is kind of a big deal. It’s essential to every teen movie, television show, and real life high school experience. It’s an opportunity to get completely dolled up and spend the night dancing and eating fancy food with your best friends. It’s also a great excuse to finally talk to that person you’ve had a huge crush on since you borrowed a pencil from them in 8th grade biology. Yeah, there’s a lot to be said for prom.


Now, the general consensus is that the most important part of the prom is looking your absolute best. The dress, the shoes, the tux, the makeup, the hair, everything has to be perfect. Because prom is such a big night, we always encourage customers to go bold with flowers. Prom is not the night to be shy and reserved. Be flashy! Add glitter and sparkle and drama! There are more options than the simple bouquet or corsage.


The night of my junior prom, I was late getting ready and my date was of course early to show up so I had zero time to do my hair. Luckily, instead of a corsage, I had opted for hair flowers. I just clipped them right behind my ear and that gave me enough pizzazz that I didn’t even need to do anything. Flowers can also be added to head bands for more hair decoration.


Wristlets are like flowery bracelets that are convenient because you don’t have to hold them. You can get disposable ones made with a simple elastic band for your wrist, or you can pick from our selection of beaded bracelets. We will design the flowers so that they can be removed at the end of the night and you can keep the bracelet to wear again and again! We’ve even seen arm cuffs which are like wristlets but wrap around your upper arm which would look great with a spaghetti strap or strapless gown.


For the traditional girl, a bouquet would really stand out in photos. Choose flowers in colors that contrast your gown to really make the bouquet pop.

There are also a ton of way to customize your prom flowers. You can add glitter, rhinestones, ribbons, decorative wire, brooches, buttons, and feathers, just to name a few.


And don’t get stuck with the rose. Yes, roses are beautiful, timeless flowers and there’s nothing wrong with wanting them for your prom. But there are so many other really cool flowers that can help make the statement you are looking for. Consider tea roses, mums, daisies, carnations, dendrobium orchids, cymbidium orchids, freesia, and mini calla lilies for your prom flower selection. While not all dress colors can be perfectly matched by a flower, you can certainly find flowers that will compliment the color of your dress. Also, at Leigh Florist we have TONS of ribbon. We literally have walls of it. We can always incorporate your dress color into your prom flowers by using a matching ribbon.


And don’t forget about your date! Mini callas and orchids make awesome boutonnieres. And if you and your date order together, we can guarantee that your flowers will coordinate so that you both match perfectly!
