The spring is a time of many kinds of celebration – and the high school prom is one of the most anticipated of these events. From the nervous invitation to the last dance, the night is full of traditions and customs that have come to represent a rite of passage for high school seniors. Among these traditions is that of beautiful formal flowers – in fact, we couldn’t imagine this important dance without them!

We’ve been providing corsages and boutonnieres for proms for decades – and we have all of the designs you are looking for.

Although corsages were traditionally worn on the bodice of a dress, in recent years the wrist corsage is the most popular type of wearable flowers. Still, fastening the flowers to a shoulder strap or even a waistband are all options. Wrist corsages will often be presented with a decorative bracelet or sequined band.
Did You Know? The first corsages were worn in ancient times to protect the women who wore them from evil spirits and deadly diseases. Corsages (and boutonnieres) often incorporated herbs among the flowers, as they too were thought to have protective powers.
When ordering the corsage for the prom, don’t forget the other forms of wearable flowers – floral crowns, custom hairpieces, floral rings, or even nosegay bouquets. (small handheld bouquets similar to bridesmaids bouquets).
Prom comes around just once a year, but Julia’s Florist is here day after day to ensure that your special occasion is adorned with the freshest, most beautifully and artistically designed flowers. Give us a call, and let’s make sure your spring events are gorgeous!
