Getting ready for prom is all about time. Prom crunch can be hectic for floral professionals. Whether prom is the same weekend as Mother’s Day weekend or those large group orders start rolling in at the same time, there just never seems to be enough hours in the day. 

You might be looking for ways to stretch your productivity to the maximum, and Pioneer Imports & Wholesale is here to help. Pioneer offers a must-have tool that can simplify the wrist corsage construction process and help you save a ton of time. Fitz Delightz are a super-useful accessory from Fitz Design, able to help you create prom wrist corsages faster and easier than ever. 

Vonda LaFever AIFD, CFD, PFCI showcases the versatility of Fitz Delightz with this quick video demonstration. 

The gorgeous Princess bracelet serves as the base for this design. This bright white option is a fantastic fit for a wide variety of prom themes – great for those large prom groups that want to coordinate but also want different accent colors to match the dresses and accessories of each couple. 

Vonda begins by adding glue to the base of each peach silk ranunculus, setting each one aside to give the glue a bit of time to set up. She also adds glue to the ribbon for that powerful glue-on-glue adhesion. After attaching the silk flowers, she adds small silk leaf accents to complete the look.

The result is beautiful! This wrist corsage looks like it took a lot of time and work, but the construction process was a breeze! Your customers and clients will love the look of your wrist corsages built on a Fitz Delightz base.

You can find these wholesale Fitz Delightz and a wide range of wholesale silk flowers available from the Pioneer Imports & Wholesale catalog. It is never too early to start building your prom season toolbox for next year – let Pioneer Imports & Wholesale help you prepare for the prom rush.

Video: Peacock Jewels Collection

Orders Pioneer - Monday, August 27, 2018

Putting a fresh twist on a classic color palette is an invigorating way to combine tradition with modern aesthetics. This is exactly what Pioneer Imports & Wholesale has done with the Peacock Jewels Collection – these vibrant jewel tones offer a stylish take on a favorite. 

In this video, Vonda LaFever AIFD, PFCI, CFD demonstrates the versatility of this collection. She begins with two geometric ceramic containers that shine with those deep peacock-inspired hue and uses wholesale silk flowers from our new Peacock Jewels collection to draw out those jewel tones in a striking and dramatic way. 

One arrangement is already complete. This monochromatic design uses dusty coral peony and cabbage rose with boxwood accents, underlining the beautiful hues of the container. By using these silk flower selections, the colors of the container stand out even more. 

Next, Vonda makes a new arrangement using the smaller container, demonstrating another way to use the Peacock Jewels Collection. 

She inserts the dusty coral selections on one side with the peacock blue silk flowers on the other, striking a dramatic balance in terms of color and visual weight. Sprigs of boxwood add extra bounce and height to the design while drawing out more of the green found in the container. 

Vonda suggests designing a range of sizes when making displays. This will allow you to appeal to more types of customers – those looking for large arrangements, small arrangements, or in between – and it also allows you to show off the wide range of your abilities. Vonda suggests stocking your display tables with at least two to three color palettes and multiple sizes. 

You can find the Peacock Jewels Collection available from the Pioneer Imports & Wholesale website, along with a diverse selection of accessories like wholesale ribbon and wholesale containers to match.
