It’s Prom Season!


The Prom is Right Around the Corner…

Things have changed dramatically (thank goodness) from when I went to the prom.  It was the time for wrist corsages in very dramatic colors and if you weren’t lucky enough to get roses, there was always the carnation.  The music wasn’t much better, but that’s another story all together…

It’s a pleasure to see the classics return with delightful updates.  The traditional boutonniere and beautiful nosegay are back with creative ways to build from the “classic” style with current colors, flowers and embellishments.  Our designers have truly outdone themselves with matching flowers to dresses and designs to the individual.


Tone-on-tone nosegays have been trendy and wonderful way to combine outstanding like-color flowers.  A recent favorite of mine was an all white nosegay with ranunculus, garden rose, and freesia, bordered with lemon leaf.  To match this nosegay to the boutonniere, freesia was fragrant and elegant.

A different, but as popular style of nosegay has been bright and vibrant.  One style I love is full of green dianthus, hot pink roses, purple lisianthus, and cymbidium orchids, accented with jewel accents.  We matched this nosegay with a cutting-edge cymbidium boutonniere.

So let the sky be the limit for your teen’s special night and be sure to order a little something special for yourself while you’re at it!
