Orchid corsage anyone?

Every once in a while one of my orchids "hits the jackpot".  This month it was Blc. Goldenzelle x Sylvia Frye.  When the sheaths appeared I hoped for maybe 4 blooms.  When they opened, there were nine buds.  I figured one or two wouldn't make it...well may I present 9 blooms.
Does anyone remember the orchid corsages we got for prom and other big events?  From time to time my blooms remind me of those times.  Those poor guys paid dearly for those flowers and I have them growing on my lanai.  A moment of gratitude.......
