Prom Exploded On Our Store!

The past two weekends we’ve been in corsage/boutonniere manufacturing mode. It tends to be a manic workday, as the fine details and delicate construction needed to make a truly impressive wrist corsage take tons of time, energy, creativity, and sometimes- a sense of humor! We have a fun, collaborative atmosphere at the Blossoms shop and while we made a great big mess of ribbon bits, wire, stems, and glue we laughed about our own prom experiences and danced to the songs we grooved to back in OUR day!


Everyone knows it takes a jar full of peppermint patties to keep up that blood sugar

A gorgeous green cymbidium creation from Amanda!

We got a little creative with the floral paint to get some extra bling

No photos please!!

There’s your behind the scenes look into our prom-tastic weekend, here are some examples of our creations:

The "ring'sage:" a corsage for your finger!

For the girls who like the bling: we like to call this type "the DancyPants"

Spriggy, springy, and super cute- these have a natural, wildflower look.

Is your date not a glitter girl? We can go earthy and elegant, too! We are SO in love with the feathers mixed into the orchid corsage on the left.

Yes, boys, we make your bouts, too! We loved this one for the boy who's ok with his masculinity!

Phew. What a whirlwind. You can really do some damage to a flower shop with 60 prom pickups. We worked so hard to make sure each couple’s flowers were unique. We know our pieces aren’t the most important part of prom, but we hope we at least gave you something special to remember!

Ah. All done.

Have fun tonight, guys and gals! Be safe!
