Prom Season

The 2018 Prom Season is in full swing, which means its Corsage time!!  I had fun creating this unique wrist corsage this morning using Cymbidium orchids, Kalanchoe flowers, and Dusty Miller secured on a mauve colored velvet ribbon that feels soooooooooo soft on the wrist!  I like to glue my designs onto soft ribbon opposed to the traditional wiring onto stiff and scratchy elastic wristlets.  Nothing worse than wearing something uncomfortable for hours!  This also allows the size to be more customizable.

Are you a high-schooler (or parent of one!) preparing for Prom this season?  Get in touch with Flowers by Alana to order a Prom corsage or boutonniere!

I set the personal business goal of publishing my own website by April, and I’m delighted I met my goal!  Doesn’t it feel good to set quarterly goals and meet them?!

This website is in the very beginning stages.  the portfolio is no where near complete.  I plan to add a section that separates wedding and events by season, and by color palettes.  I’ll be posting blog posts of various weddings and styled shoots I’m a part of, and will include a calendar that shows availability for wedding dates.

If you’ve been following my floral design journey, I want to thank you!!  Thank you for referring me to your sisters and friends!! Thank you for your engagement on my social media pages.  Thank you for ordering flowers!!

Happy Spring!!  Nothing says Spring like FLOWERS!
