Let's go to Prom!


What’s Your Checklist for Prom?

Prom is such a wonderful time of the year! It's spring, the weather is warm, the kids are almost out of school, and we have a full bounty of flowers. We we've compiled a quick list of the best flowers to use for corsages and boutonnieres for 2018!

Boutonnières and corsages fall under the category of “Personal Flowers” since they are worn on your person.

One rule of thumb for any corsage? Keep it simple and small.

You'll be moving your hands, dancing around, greeting friends and having all kinds of fun. It's important that you're able to move freely when wearing the corsage.

Ask your florist to use wire on your corsage and to secure it well at the bud to support weak stems. Replace flower stems on corsages, so the corsage stem is not bulky. Continue to use wire to add accessories to corsages and arrangements.

Here are some flowers that do very well without water for hours:

  • Carnations

  • Chrysanthemums

  • Cymbidium Orchids

  • Mini Calla Lily

  • Standard Roses

  • Spray Roses

  • Peonies
