Winter Flower Corsage Ideas

Seeking beautiful winter wedding corsage ideas? Look no further! We’ve sourced the most divine winter inspired corsages on Pinterest. View our full mood board here.

Berries, Berries, Berries!

Think holly berries, raspberries, native berries, privet berries, rosehip and hipericum. A sprig of berries makes the perfect little addition to a winter corsage or buttonhole.

Succulent Succulents

Silvery green, mushroom pink, chocolate-black. The colour options available in succulents are astounding and beautiful, as are all the interesting shapes available, especially the miniature ‘rose’ shaped variety. Plus they are wonderfully hardy for a wedding corsage or buttonhole. Beautifully offset with foliage or a simple rose, these beauties are perfect for winter corsages.

Thistle and Feather

The humble blue Scottish thistle offers a fabulous touch to a wee winter corsage or buttonhole. As are speckled game bird feathers in neutral tones of brown, cream, grey and black (such as guinea fowl and pheasant feathers). Spotty and stripy, these add wonderful shapes, textures and ‘earthiness’ to the design.

Winter Blooms and Buds

Yes to a creamy rose or a deep velvet red for a classic winter buttonhole. But how about other winter beauties such as anemones with their striking black centres, ranunculus in deep reds and burgundies, and the delightful hellebore?

Fabulous Foliage

Branch away from the usual camellia leaf and dabble in interesting winter leaves including spruce, baby pine cones, rich maroon smoke bush, silvery dusty miller and eucalyptus, rosemary and ivy.

Flowers for a Winter Wonderland Theme Party

Planning a winter wonderland theme party? Whether it is a wedding or special event, take a look at these fantastical ideas to create a winter wonderland using flowers.

BLOSSOM & HYDRANGEA

This white blossom and fluffy white hydrangea has ‘winter wonderland’ written all over it. Keep in mind though, the availability in Australia for these flowers is more likely to be in spring. Love the added touch of the suspended tea light candles from the arrangement, and the vase is a beautiful shape (a little curved at the top and bottom, compared to a standard straight up and down cylindrical vase).

ICE CRYSTALS

A ‘crystal and orchid’ winter wonderland table arrangement featuring sparkling branches of crystals with pure white snowflake shaped phalaenopsis orchid stems en-masse. Grouped in three different height elegant vases with cut crystal posy vases containing orchids around the base, the design is lifted to even greater heights with the use of a high quality crystal table setting and the reflection from white candles in cut crystal goblets.

A BLOSSOM FOREST

Masses of white blossom branches create a snow covered forest effect on a grand scale – simple and striking all at the same time. Again, the availability of white blossom in Australia is more likely to be in spring.

FLUFFY FLOWER SNOWBALLS

This white hydrangea and babies breath concoction is like a big fluffy snowball floating on top of a slender, ‘ice-like’ candelabra. A forest of branches create a backdrop of privacy around the table setting for an added winter wonderland touch.

SIMPLICITY = ELEGANCE

You don’t need to use massive flower arrangements to create an effective winter wonderland theme party. A simple square posy vase with willow wound inside and a ‘nest’ white roses clustered in the centre is equally as effective and beautiful. Team with square glass tea light candles to tie in with the shape of the vase and you have an elegant low table centre.
