Mother’s Day Corsages.

Mother’s Day corsages are probably the most well-known and widely practiced Mother’s Day tradition. Whether worn to church or a special brunch in her honor, this special little touch is filled with meaning and love.

How to make your own unique and special Mother’s Day corsage:

Step one: Select your flowers. Always use odd numbers for your flowers. You either want one, three, or five flowers in your corsage. Depending on whether your flowers are silk or live, you may want to use wire to support them.

Step two: Gather them together in your desired arrangement and tape the stems with stem wrap. Stem wrap comes in two colors: white or green. Select according to the look you desire.

Step three: Add embellishments. Embellishments include baby’s breath, miniature forget-me-nots, gypsophilia, or greenery. These additions can be fixed to the existing corsage with the careful use of hot glue.

Step four: Trim your stems to an equal and desired length.

Step five: Wrap entire base in the same color stem tape as you used in step two.

Step six: Add a ribbon bow if desired and place pin in corsage through stems to use later.

How to pin on the corsage: Corsages should be worn so that they bend gently over the collar bone. Do not pin it into place too far down. The recipient should be able to turn her head and smell the corsage.
