Learn how to create a stylish corsage in a modern colorway with Vonda LaFever AIFD, CFD, PFCI. In this quick video walkthrough, Vonda builds an unforgettable corsage using the sparkling Diamond Road Bracelet along with wholesale silk flowers and wholesale Fitz Design accents from Pioneer. 


The base for this contemporary corsage design, the Diamond Road Bracelet, features a plastic platform to make custom additions easier than ever. Vonda uses this platform to attach the radiant Sunrise brooch garlands with small pieces of thin wire, trimming the wire as needed.

Beautiful lacy Princessa ribbon adds body to the design without increasing the sense of weight. Vonda ties a length of this ribbon across the platform, using the loose ends to secure a voluminous bow right in the center of the corsage bracelet. 

Next, Vonda uses adhesive to apply silk foliage around the edges of the plastic platform. This spray of dusty Lambs Ear offers a soft visual effect. Finally, Vonda rounds out the design with petals of wholesale silk flowers in a smooth coral color that matches the ribbon – this silk Hydrangea bush in pink sand is a favorite for any season. 

This combination of sparkling wholesale Fitz Design elements and the exceptionally soft coral tones of wholesale silk flowers from Pioneer lends this corsage design an aesthetic that feels at once up-to-date and sweetly nostalgic. This piece will make a perfect keepsake your customers and clients will enjoy for years after a big event. 

You can find all the supplies used in this video on the Pioneer Imports & Wholesale website. Pioneer offers a tremendous range of wholesale silk flowers, wholesale Fitz Design, and a wide variety of accents to make every piece special.

Video: How To: Simple Corsage with Sophisticated Lady Bracelet

Amanda Thomas - Friday, April 06, 2018

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


This quick video tutorial will walk you through the process of creating a simple corsage that integrates trendy metal tones and permanent botanicals, as demonstrated by Vonda LaFever AIFD, PFCI, CFD. 


Vonda begins by highlighting the base of this corsage, a wholesale Fitz Design selection called the Sophisticated Lady Bracelet. This corsage will use the bronze color, but Vonda also displays two additional color options including rose gold and copper. The bracelet is currently available in 12 colors.

She also offers a quick introduction to the other accents incorporated in this piece – wired “Flash” ribbon in copper, two Spooky Leaves in glamorous gold, silk Phalaenopsis orchid blossoms in white, and a small permanent botanical succulent along with two of its leaves. 

Vonda starts the construction process by securing the remaining plastic platform with a piece of ribbon. She ties a second piece of ribbon from corner to corner, then uses it to attach a voluminous bow she created from a third section of ribbon. 

Next, Vonda prepares the plastic platform with glue. This sets the stage for glue-to-glue contact to create a much stronger bond. Durability is one of the most crucial concerns for wearable accessories like this one – strong bonds and clean mechanics ensure this piece will last throughout a long event, ideally lasting long enough to become a keepsake or memento afterward. 

By curling and flattening the long stem of the Spooky Leaf, Vonda creates a little extra gluing surface for a better hold. She glues and attaches the gold leaves on either side of the platform, before doing the same with the small wholesale artificial succulent and its companion leaves. 

Vonda then arranges the silk Phalaenopsis orchid blossoms – she places four around the edges and finishes with one slightly offset in the center.

The resulting corsage demonstrates fantastic balance. The artificial succulents pop with color, the gold leaves and sparkling ribbon add a touch of glimmer and glamour, and the silk orchid blossoms make a sophisticated yet classic statement. 

You can find all the supplies used this demonstration within the Pioneer Imports & Wholesale website. Pioneer offers a wide range of wholesale silk flowers, artificial succulents, beautiful ribbon, and wholesale Fitz Design bracelets – everything you need to create beautiful wrist corsages for any style and occasion.

Video: How To: Gorgeous Rose Gold Corsage with the Melody Bracelet

Amanda Thomas - Monday, April 02, 2018

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


Learn how to create a beautiful corsage bracelet with this quick and easy video tutorial demonstration by Vonda LaFever AIFD, PFCI, CFD. 


The glamorous Melody corsage bracelet in rose gold serves as a base for this design, enhanced with silk orchid blossoms and wholesale artificial succulents like echeveria and string of pearls. Showtime ribbon in platinum and Double Faced Satin ribbon in nectar finish the composition.

The metal bracket that comes with the bracelet has already been removed for this video, and the remaining plastic platform has been secured. Vonda moves right into the construction of the corsage by laying both types of ribbon beneath the platform and tying a knot. This provides extra surface area to support the adhesive that Vonda adds in the next step.

Once the adhesive has enjoyed a moment to set up, Vonda begins adding individual silk succulent leaves. She also adds the artificial string of pearls to give a nice trailing effect for that extra touch of elegance.  

Vonda places more adhesive in the center of the arrangement to accommodate the addition of a gorgeous focal point. By weaving both silk orchid blossoms together with throats toward the center, Vonda makes an impressively full-looking corsage sure to please any recipient. To finish the design, Vonda trims any excess ribbon. 

The result is a colorful, modern, and sophisticated corsage with just the right amount of glitz and glamour to become a dazzling statement piece for any event. 

Each component used in this demonstration is readily available from the Pioneer Imports & Wholesale website. Take time to explore Pioneer’s wide selection of wholesale silk flowers, artificial succulents, corsage bracelets, ribbon, and beyond – everything you need to create stunning accessories just like this one.
