A New Twist on the Traditional Corsage - Wearable Flowers in Winston-Salem, NC

Wrist corsages seem so outdated.  The itchy elastic band...the old school lace backing...the way they flop around on the wrist...and so on.  While over the years I have tried new ways to modernize the wrist corsage (i.e. make it more like a jewelry cuff), it is still a wrist corsage.

Also, over the years I have enjoyed watching the floral jewelry trend grow and change.  I particularly LOVE following the creations by Passionflower.  Her botanical jewelry, headpieces, and now floral tattoos are amazing!  She is a true talent and inspiration to designers everywhere!

I brainstormed how I can contribute to the modernization of the corsage with my own twist.  What I really want to offer my clients is something versatile and easy to wear.  I mean think about it...most corsages are ordered and given as a gift.  Wouldn't it be great if the person receiving it had easy options about how to wear it?

With all that being said, I came up with a bendable corsage.  It is a relatively thin corsage that is made on a piece of flexible flat wire.  The person wearing the corsage can bend it to fit wherever they want to wear it!  It can be wrapped around the wrist, arm, head, waist, even around a ponytail!  Check out these pictures and contact us if you interested in ordering!

Natural Fall Wreaths, Winston-Salem, NC

Fall is my favorite season.  At the beginning of autumn I love to jump in and design with all sorts of natural, dried elements.  Lotus pods, amber hops, kiwi vine, smilax canes, cotton, congo grass - these are just a few of the many elements I like to incorporate.  Here is a small sampling of a few of my first fall creations.

Each is original and custom made. No two are alike.  Interested in purchasing? Just pop over to our studio to pick one out or call with a special order!

Cheers to autumn~

Announcing ORIGINALS - Ordering Specialty Floral Designs in Winston-Salem

ALO has designed for events for over 10 years.  

I LOVE designing for weddings, and more recently designing for corporate events.  While our company is still deeply rooted in designing for the event world, we are now branching out to offer our community the ability to order single designs.

We named our new line of a la carte designs "Originals" because that is truly what they are.  We are not into dozen roses, balloons, or any cookie cutter type of design.  We are simply offering designs in our own unique style - Wild.  Natural.  Inspired.  

Check out some of our work below.  If you dig our style and want to order an "Original" give us a shout at 336-997-9443 or you can order online amylynneoriginals.com/originals

We are excited to offer our beautiful and very artful city our creativity in the form of fresh floral designs.

Summer Wedding Flowers in Winston-Salem, NC

This past summer we had the privilege to design for a lovely outdoor wedding at a beautiful family home in Winston-Salem.  The wedding took place in the morning with a brunch that followed at Forsyth Country Club.  While the weather the day before was wet and gloomy...the sun came out the morning of the wedding and shined down on their special day! 

The bride carried a cascading bouquet filled with garden roses, clematis, rosemary and jasmine.  The bridesmaids carried hand-tied bouquets with pops of dusty pink (Quicksand  and Keira roses) and plum (dahlias and scabiosa). 

The ceremony took place in the backyard of the family home.  A floral arch was created using 2 potted pin oak trees as the base.  The pots and trunks were covered with greenery and flowers to create a lush and tall arch that framed the ceremony location.

After the ceremony the celebration continued at the club.  The wedding party and guests danced under a floral chandelier that hung over the dance floor.  It was magical!

A big thank you to  Elly's Photography for the amazing images. 

Cheers~

Wedding Flowers - The Ritz Carlton Urban Garden, Charlotte, NC

Looking back over 2016 I would have to say that this wedding is one that stands out.  Bright hues of orange and pink against black and white stripes - without a doubt it had a fun Kate Spade vibe!  What made this wedding even more special to me is that I designed for the bride's sister the year before!  Such a sweet family that I thoroughly enjoyed working with on BOTH weddings!  
Enjoy these beautiful images from Indigo Photography!
