Orchid Wrist Corsage
Cindy made this beautiful Phalaenopsis orchid wrist corsage for a professional floristry competition organisied by Oasis - and it won first place in the corsage section!
It is based on a single orchid flower head and features red galex leaves which set off the colour of the orchid delightfully. There is also a ranunculus flower behind the orchid, which is just out of shot in the photo. There are also buds of ranunculus and the corsage is finished with hypericum berries.
This particular corsage is slightly larger than what we normally make, and really makes a statement. It is mounted on a hand crafted wire holder that loops over the index finger and is attached to a wristlet. This makes the whole structure sturdy but surprisingly light. It is very easy to wear, and is unusual in being both spectacular yet practical.
The photo above shows a side view so that you can see the diamante wristlet.
Some brides don't want a bouquet of flowers to carry around throughout the day. An orchid wrist corsage such as this would make an excellent alternative to a bouquet. It could also be used as an alternative to a bridesmaid's bouquets.
