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.

Learn how to create a gorgeous wrist corsage using wholesale silk lilies and foliage accents from Pioneer Imports & Wholesale by following along with this quick video demonstration by Vonda LaFever AIFD, CFD, PFCI.

This tutorial uses the Bubble Bath corsage bracelet in champagne, also available from Pioneer. This piece is stunningly simple and super versatile – easy to coordinate with a variety of wrist corsage styles. 

Vonda begins by preparing the bracelets with a length of string to bind the strands together. She liberally applies glue to the group of string ends, creating a nice flat base for the addition of the permanent botanical elements. 

Each of the silk dusty miller leaves comes with plastic veining, which Vonda easily removes before application for a softer look. Trimming the ends of each leaf provides a larger surface area for attachment. Vonda adds glue to each before attaching to the bracelet, creating a strong glue-on-glue bond. 

Vonda takes the same glue-on-glue approach with the dramatic purple silk calla lilies, applying glue to the stems. The first addition has a lengthy stem – easy and quick to attach. She applies glue to the others and sets them aside to give the glue a little more time to set up. 

The other silk foliage used in this design is from a silk lemon leaf garland. She trims these into smaller pieces for better dispersal. She applies the remaining silk foliage elements between the silk calla lilies, taking care to vary the heights and angles to create a sense of fabulous dramatic volume. 

Check out the result! This piece features a straightforward composition, yet the purple silk calla lilies make a truly glamorous statement – this wrist corsage can be dressed up or dressed down to fit any occasion. 

Are you inspired to create your own distinctive variations on this design? The lovely Bubble Bath bracelet is also available in silvery Charcoal, glossy black Midnight, and bright white Sugar. Have fun experimenting with the various Bubble Bath colorways alongside the tremendous variety of wholesale silk flowers available from Pioneer.

Pioneer Imports & Wholesale has everything you need to create one-of-a-kind wrist corsages for weddings, prom groups, and other exciting occasions.
