collared callas

A handmade backing edged with corsage pins adds a tailored circular element to this modern cascade bouquet.

     Bouquet collars protect flowers from bruising while offering value-added decorative treatments to bridal designs. This handmade backing, created by adhering Galax leaves to a cardboard disc, takes style to the next level with an edging of round-headed corsage pins that add the elegance of jade-hued pearls.

     With corsage pins’ vast range of colors, this look can be customized to coordinate with any flowers or foliages. Consider a bold look with fuchsia or an elegant look with ivory.
