Gifts That Tie Generations Together

MF Rose bud NT01Beautiful Memories with Memory Flowers

Turn a piece of your wedding dress into a beautiful corsage or boutonniere, or include a rose bud made from a loved one’s neck tie in your wedding bouquet to make the memory of that loved one part of your special day.

We currently offer Petal Roses in single-stem flowers or in corsages and boutonnieres and gathered rosette corsages.  Click here for Order Form

 

Petal Roses

Petal roses are made by individually cutting each petal.  Although these are beautiful roses, they need a fabric that has some stiffness to it.  Fabrics like Satin and Silk and many of the lining fabrics found in wedding dresses are great fabrics for these roses.  Just about any Neck Tie will also work.  Loose fabrics with lots of drape (like chiffon and organza) and stretchy fabrics (like t-shirt fabrics) do not work well.  For those fabrics, look at our gathered rosette option below.

Rose Bud $25MF petal rose bud NT

A single rose bud that can be displayed in a bud vase or incorporated into another floral element.  Each bud is hand cut and assembled with two leaves.  They are approximately 11″ tall.

Gathered Rosette Corsage $45

NolanE Corsage01web

Gathered rosettes have been used for generations by fashion designers.  Each rosette is made by gathering and twisting strips of fabric to make the appearance of leaves.  Gathered rosettes do best with thin, loose fabrics and stretchy fabrics like chiffon, organza and even t-shirt materials can be used.  Different fabrics give a very different outcome.  We try to use some of the bead work or lace from any wedding dress when making a corsage-.  Neck ties aren’t really good for making a gathered rosette.

Michelle Hunt sent us her wedding dress looking for an ornate unisex christening gown to be made for her daughter and any future children and grandchildren to wear. Her wedding dress had some stunning lace and a lot of seams to work around. We were even able to incorporate a little of the bling.

Patricia Schoeler sent a stole that belonged to her beloved aunt and she shared this note: "As kids, my sister and I could only pronounce "Moo". She was such a good sport and was known as "Auntie Moo" ever since. This is for me right now but I will pass it on to the younger kids some day." ... See MoreSee Less
