Video Summary written for Pioneer Imports & Wholesale by: Lisa B.


Sophisticated and glamorous, this corsage combines smooth silk flowers with glimmering metallic details for an excitingly on-trend look. Learn how to create this gorgeous design by following along with Vonda LaFever AIFD, PFCI, CFD in this step-by-step video demonstration from Pioneer Imports & Wholesale. 


Let’s start with a quick introduction to the supplies, all available from Pioneer Imports & Wholesale. The base is a wholesale Fitz Design corsage bracelet called Sophisticated Lady, while the centerpiece Phalaenopsis orchid is one of the many super-realistic wholesale silk flowers available from Pioneer. Decorative details include shiny Gleaming Leaves and beautiful sheer ribbon. 

Vonda begins construction by securing the plastic platform to the corsage bracelet using a chenille stem in silver. As she explains, this type of chenille blends in with the other metallic elements and remains easily hidden after the corsage is complete. 

Next, Vonda snips the largest silk orchid blossom from the spray and removes each petal to use individually. She adds adhesive to the plastic platform and attaches the silk petals one by one, creating a nice base for further design.

The shiny Gleaming Leaves will bring sparkling metallic accents up throughout the composition. Vonda curls the stems with needle nose pliers to create a larger gluing surface for greater durability. She then adds even more adhesive over the bed of silk petals, allowing it to set up and get tacky before adding the Gleaming Leaves. 

A small bow will create more volume without increasing weight. Vonda uses a short length of ribbon to create the bow, and glues it directly to the center of the arrangement. She then ties another length of ribbon around the entire corsage bracelet and bow for extra security. Trim the ribbon ends as needed.

To finish the design, Vonda snips the remaining silk orchid blossoms from the spray and attaches each one to the center of the corsage, neatly nestled into the bow. 

At the end of the video, Vonda displays another version of this corsage using a similar silk orchid in a dark purple color, demonstrating just how versatile these elements from Pioneer Imports & Wholesale really are.

Pioneer offers a diverse range of wholesale silk flowers, wholesale ribbon, wholesale Fitz Design corsage bracelets, and so much more – everything you need to prepare for your upcoming trade shows, displays, and seasonal product updates.
