Everafterflora: Wedding Flowers for a very Special Friend
I have been in heaven for the past few weeks making these Everafterflora for a sweet friend for her wedding. First of all, I was thrilled that she would trust me with her flowers, and second, I rediscovered skills learned over 40 years ago. One of my favorite jobs from my past was that of apprentice florist. I learned the basics of corsage making with fresh flowers, and those skills magically came back to me while I was making these boutonnieres,corsages,and wrist corsages. These flowers and leaves are all hand-made and custom-colored, a skill that I recently acquired. They are as light as a feather, will not crush, fade, bruise, or die like live flowers do. Everafterflora are a permanent keepsake of your special day. By the way, there are 10 groomsmen boutonnieres, 2 father boutonnieres, 2 mother's corsages and 12 bridesmaid's wrist corsages. It was loads of work, but I was truly in heaven. Happy Wedding Sara and Krys!
