Oasis Idea Weekly - Prom Flowers

February 27, 2018
How to attach prom flowers?

We used to tape and wire boutonnieres and corsages. Now we glue.

Why glue? Which glue(s) to use? 

And what should you do—and not do—to get the most from glue?
Glue is lighter than wire or tape—and your prom and other customers are more likely to wear and enjoy wrist corsages and other structures that are lighter.

Once you learn how to glue, it is usually faster than wiring and taping, especially with the right glue choices. In addition, some designers report that gluing is easier on the hands.

What works for securing fresh flowers and decorative materials in prom designs also works for party, homecoming, wedding and special occasion floral arrangements.

To get gluing tips and techniques and see a dozen bout and corsage design photos, click the image above or green button below.
