A special little girl requested that she have a corsage for a special event.  This special girl was my daughter along with her date which was her father/ my husband.  They both asked me on the day of the event which was the Father Daughter Dance.  I've been prepping for Valentine's Day which is very big and a lot of people usually wait for the last minute to order their love ones flowers.  So I've been trying to prepare for this day. 

I usually have flowers in my studio luckily I had the color that matched my daughter's dress.  I feel having flowers in your home gives warmth and beauty so if I don't have some in my studio then they are usually in my kitchen.  So I took out all my ribbons to see which one she would like and some accessories.  She of course chose the pink ribbon with the bling accessory.  She is definitely a girly girl and I love it.

I got everything together and realized that I didn't have no more corsage wristlets!  I remember I used them all in my last event that I did.  I didn't panic I had oasis glue and ribbon.  I attached the flowers to the ribbon. I also used wire and floral tape which definitely did it's job.   The wire and floral tape helped hold everything together.  I covered the wire and floral tape with ribbon then I attached the ribbon in 2 different spots on the corsage so that the corsage would stay in place.  And BAM! I finished the corsage.  For being last minute and having a minor setback,                                                                                                               I think I did ok.

What was important was that she loved her corsage and that she had a great time and both were accomplished.
