corsages

* Corsages and boutonnieres were originally used to protect the wearer against evil spirits and diseases.
* The term corsage is a shortened version of bouquet de corsage, literally  “bouquet of the bodice”.  The word boutonniere means “little button”, designating a flower worn on the lapel of a tailored jacket.
* Corsages were originally positioned in the center of the bodice, and although they are sometimes worn on one shoulder, or fastened to the waist, the wrist corsage is the most popular variety of floral corsage.
* Lilies, roses, and orchids are most often used when designing formal flowers, but we are happy to work with you to create a custom piece with any of your favorite flowers.
