Corsage Making Party!

Last night I gathered some crafty friends for a party to make corsages for my 40th Birthday Prom. As guests arrive they will choose a corsage to wear for the night then they get to take it home as a fancy party favor! Here are some of the fabulous creations from the party.

I dug through my enormous stash of vintage pieces and realized that I had been preparing for this day my whole life! Pretty much all of the weird vintage pieces that I love to collect can be used in corsages. It is going to be so much fun to see these beauties in action at the Prom - and will be interesting to see who picks which one. I wonder who will pick that troll one!?

This is the wrist corsage I made for myself out of my favorite vintage pink pieces. I'm thinking it might make a better tiara stuck to the front of my beehive hairdo! We'll see.

Corsage making supplies and cocktails spread out on the table.

Getting crazy crafty with the corsages!

I LOVE it! What a fun idea for a party, even if you aren't going to have a prom. And what a wonderful collection!
