Crazy about Corsages

What a prom season! Juniors and seniors from all around Birmingham have been ordering their corsages and boutonnieres the past few weeks. We managed to snap a few photos before some of them went out the door. The picture quality isn't great...but we're not photographers - we're florists!

It's Prom Time...Know Your Role!

The responsibility of purchasing the corsage lies with the gentlemen. It’s a good idea to ask your date in advance exactly what color her dress is so we can match the ribbon colors. For an additional charge, our wrist corsages can be made on a bracelet that can be worn and treasured long after your special night is over.

Ladies, if your date is purchasing a corsage for you, it is most common that you purchase him a boutonniere to match. Corsages and boutonnieres are ready the afternoon of the prom. Both should be stored in the refrigerator at home until it is time to pick up your date.

Most traditionally the wristlet is worn on the left arm if your date is right handed. Proper placement of the boutonniere is the left side of the lapel of a man's formal jacket or sport coat. Men's coats traditionally have a buttonhole in the top lapel where the boutonniere can be placed.
