Corsages and boutonnieres date back to the early 1800’s, but that doesn’t mean that your homecoming flowers have to be old-fashioned! In fact, the floral designers at Blossom Flower Shops are dedicated to creating contemporary, unique florals which are exciting and modern – so we ask you, what is your homecoming style?
If you are looking to make a bold fashion statement at the homecoming dance, here are a few tips from our experts to get your imagination going.
Wear it Best: A combination of jewelry and flowers, the wristlet is the updated iteration of the traditional corsage. You can design the bracelet with beads, rhinestones, ribbons and more for a uniquely personal piece. If you are really looking to try something different, ask about floral bracelets or crowns.
Celebrating Color: Traditionally, the goal was to match the color of the dress perfectly to a monochromatic corsage. Choosing complimentary colors, varied color palettes and unique accents will guarantee that your flowers will not blend into the dress, and will make the distinctive fashion statement you are looking for.
Stand Out from the Crowd: A traditional rose corsage is sophisticated and lovely. But if your style is a bit more adventurous and edgy, ask our designers to recommend in-season flowers that you may not expect for a corsage, like dendrobium orchids, asters, or calla lilies.
Be Flexible and Creative: You may think you found the perfect flowers on Pinterest. But that corsage may feature flowers that are out of season – or maybe, won’t match the style of your dress. We will consider all the details, from the dress you’ll be wearing to our favorite seasonal colors and your inspiration piece – and design a one-of-a-kind corsage unlike any other at the dance.
Homecoming is destined to become one of our favorite memories, and Blossom Flower Shops is here to ensure that those memories are as gorgeous as possible.
