Good Old Days Florist

Birthday 1950’s Candy Corsages Candy Lapels


All the rage; everyone loved these big, bold, and way over sized, corsages from the 1940’s-1960’s whether child or adult. You didn’t have a birthday without one and this was your first corsage ever.  Made as a corsage/wristlet for girls and as a pin on for the boys with 2 candies.   Traditionally…… the birthday girl had the larger while each party guest had matching, mini pin ons.   What fun the good old days were!

Wristlets/corsages are made with assorted new & vintage ribbons, mini faux flowers and a feather or 2.  About the size of an extra large orange/grapefruit for girls or as a pin-on with 2 candies for the boys and party guests.


Traditionally whatever the age was the amount of candy.
