Flowers for School Dances
Flowers for school dances such as corsages and boutonnieres. Prom, Homecoming, Sadie Hawkins and Daddy/Daughter dances are all very special occasions that give B/A Florist of East Lansing, Michigan the opportunity to provide you with one of a kind, personalized floral pieces. Wearing corsages and boutonnieres for school dances and formal events is a long standing tradition that dates back to a time when flowers were worn for formal events to ward off evil spirits. As times changed and schools started hosting dances, the tradition evolved to gentleman bringing their dates a bouquet of flowers. They would then take a blossom from the bouquet and pin it to the lady’s dress. As dress styles changed, wrist corsages became more popular.
A boutonniere, or a buttonhole, is generally worn by the male on the left lapel. It contains one or two focal flowers, nestled in greenery. Decorative accents such as wire, or ribbon can be added to compliment the attire of the gentleman’s date.
A corsage is generally worn by the female and is available as a wristlet or a pin corsage. Most of our customers prefer the wristlet corsage. The corsage contains 2 or more focal flowers, nestled in greenery and other filler flowers. The corsages for school dances can be made as simple or as elaborate as you desire.
