Prom season has arrived, which means it's time to look for dresses and tuxes for the biggest dance of the year and of high school. It also means prom flowers like a prom corsage and prom boutonniere. We are proud to offer a prom collection of flowers that match your style, color and flower preference, and budget. In fact, we have numerous collections within our prom flower collection that are themed to represent a different style that our customers love. There are so many individuals with their own style that this provides a way to find something that fits their taste. For example, we have the Bohemian collection as well as the Fairy Godmother collection, Glam collection, Preppy collection, Retro Hipster collection, and more. Each represents a style in the type of flowers and colors used as well as the type of corsage bracelet or wristband. While some have feathers, others have beads and rhinestones. Flowers include everything from orchids and lilies to carnations, roses, hydrangea and more. And, for every prom corsage floral design, we have a matching boutonniere. So, if the prom corsage features an orchid in blue, so does the prom boutonniere. That way, you and your date are perfectly coordinated for the special evening. Also, we have a custom floral design service that lets you create your own custom prom corsage and matching custom prom boutonniere. All you need to do is make an appointment with our floral design team and then bring in a fabric swatch or your dress. That way, our floral design team can make recommendations based on what they see. It's so much fun working together to create something magical for the special dance.
