School is coming to an end, which means it’s officially time to get ready for prom and graduation!
Both prom and graduation ceremonies are important traditions symbolizing the transition out of highschool and onto the next phase of a young person’s life. This transition is celebrated with a formal end of year ceremony and party, complete with beautiful gowns and tuxedos. Traditionally, the outfit for prom isn’t complete without a corsage for the lady and a boutonniere for the gentleman. Here are some ideas for choosing the perfect flower arrangement for yourself or your date to prom!
Match the dress
It’s common to match the corsage and boutonniere to the colour of the lady’s dress. Once you’ve found that perfect dress for prom, you can shop for a corsage for yourself, or a boutonniere for your date that matches perfectly! If you’re buying a corsage for your date, make sure to inquire about the colour of her dress before corsage shopping.
It’s a good idea to place your order as soon as you know what colour you’re looking for to ensure the best selection. However, it’s not such a good idea to pick up your order early. By asking a real florist for delivery on the day before prom, they will ensure that it’s as fresh as possible when it gets to you.
Keep your small flower arrangements in their plastic containers and store them in the refrigerator the night before prom. This will keep them looking fresh and will keep their colour and shape for the big night.
Spray the ends of the flowers
Before putting your corsage or boutonniere in the fridge, spray the ends of the flowers with water from a spray bottle. This will keep the flowers hydrated and fresh for longer, so you don’t end up wearing wilting flowers towards the end of prom night.
