Prom season is here, and after the prom-posal is out of the way, it is time to prepare! Gowns, tuxes, limos, and dinners all need to be lined up – and of course, you’ll need flowers. Wearable flowers are a cherished tradition for proms and spring formals, and we couldn’t imagine the big dance without them. Corsage, boutonniere, or even a floral crown – all the formal florals you need are right here at Blossom Flower Shops.
But Wait, There’s More! Prom may be one of the most exciting spring events. but it is not the only one. For the graduate, or for a very special Mom on Mother’s Day – wearable flowers are a great choice.
Although some still choose to wear a corsage pinned to the bodice of a dress, wrist corsages are very popular as well. Orchids and roses remain the most common flowers utilized to create wearable flowers for formal occasions, but calla lilies and succulents are interesting and beautiful alternatives. In fact, take a look at our succulent collection – we love these options for prom flowers!

Did You Know? Corsage literally means corset or bodice, and the term was shortened from the original bouquet de corsage. The word boutonniere is French for “little button”.
Corsages and boutonnieres were originally worn to ward off evil spirits and deadly diseases, but their purpose began to change in the late 17th century. It was at that time that wearable flowers began to function as gifts between couples who were courting, and that tradition is likely the genesis of the custom of wearing flowers at proms and dances. At Blossom Flower Shops, we look forward to helping you to celebrate this centuries-old tradition as you head off to your Yonkers or White Plains area prom. Give us a call today, and let us help you to design your flowers for your very special night.
