With the fall season kicked into high gear, it's time for high schoolers to celebrate the tradition of homecoming with a football game and dance to follow the next night. Homecoming is a memorable celebration where everyone dresses to impress and enjoy a fun time with friends. As part of the homecoming experience, flowers play an important role. There are homecoming corsages, boutonnieres, flowers for the hair and even small bouquets to consider that should coordinate with you and your date's attire. At our Rochester flower shop, we have a collection of themed homecoming flowers to choose from like these: Our signature collection features traditional designs many of which features roses and carnations. The runway collection is much more glamorous with plenty of bling, accents, and bold color choices. Our retro hipster collection of homecoming flowers offers some of the most unique floral displays with bright colors and flowers like gerbera daisies as the focal point. The preppy collection is more formal and features fewer flowers and more ribbons that reflect a scholarly look. The glam collection is similar to our runaway collection in terms of glitz, bling, and glamour. Many of these homecoming flowers are premium level with many featuring luxurious orchids. Our fairy godmother collection has a wide range of artistic and sweet looks that anyone homecoming attendee is sure to love. Finally, we have a Bohemian collection for all those free spirits out there looking for color and texture in their homecoming flowers. Also, you can work with our Rochester flower shop floral design team on custom homecoming corsages and custom homecoming boutonnieres to match. Just call us today to schedule your appointment!
