Garden Corsages for Mom

I asked my mom what I could make her for Mother's Day, and she said that she would love a corsage that she could pin to her dress. Rather than make just one, I thought it would be fun to make a few and have her pick which one she would want to wear this coming Sunday. After looking in my garden, I picked a bunch of different flowers - roses, geranium, camellia, lavender, mock orange, hellebore, hydrangea, clematis, and some tiny flowers from one of the succulents. You can use anything that you'd like for a corsage, so please don't feel constrained by the selections noted.

A pretty ribbon really makes the corsage, and I keep a big basket in the closet containing a wide variety of widths, colors, and styles. If you are into crafting at all, I'd encourage you to stop by your local craft store and pick up a selection - you can always find uses for it. tulipina.com / Kiana Underwood

Making a corsage is easy - and doesn't require more than a few flowers (and greens, if desired) tulipina.com / Kiana Underwood
