It’s Time to Order Your Custom-Made Prom Boutonnieres and Corsages

boutonnieres and corsagesWe’re well into spring, and the kids are eager to get out of school for the summer. There’s one important event that’s the talk of the town among tweens and teens, and that is the Spring Prom. The level of formality may vary from school to school, but one thing is sure: the most essential accent to the outfit that any boy or girl will wear is their s.


It is customary for boys and young men who take a girl or young woman to a prom to bring a corsage for her to wear when he picks her up to go to the prom. Likewise, proper etiquette dictates that a girl or young woman give her escort a boutonniere to wear.

Over the years, the rules regarding prom attire have changed. Couples may or may not share information about the color of their clothing with their intended date. That makes it harder to choose a corsage or boutonniere that looks so fantastic with the outfits they wear, you’d be tempted to think that the choices were planned.


Because of the unique nature of corsages and boutonnieres, we like to customize them for our prom couples, just as we do for our brides and grooms and their bridal party attendants.


We’ve chosen some samples that we hope will give you an idea as to how we put these wearable floral designs together for our customers who call us or stop by to discuss the design of a custom corsage or boutonniere.

Some customers like to incorporate colorful s into the piece they intend to wear. This sophisticated design combines orchids and spray roses. We accent this elegant but simple corsage with white variegated mesh and satin ribbon. We chose to use purple or magenta-colored orchids to provide a touch of color. We can customize feature of this look to use different colored orchids or roses, various types of s, or add a colorful ribbon to bring even more color into the design. We can also create a coordinating boutonniere.


Don’t wait to order your prom s: we need to have plenty of time to assemble the lovely design we helped you create. Stop by Al’s Florist or call us to discuss a custom design that will surprise your prom date and provide you both with a lifetime of warm memories.
