Homecoming Flowers and Trends

We operate multiple flower shops in the area. Our Rochester and Canandaigua flower shops are both open to the public for in-store shopping for gifts, weddings, and special occasions. Our flower shop has been voted "Best Florist in the Finger Lakes" on numerous occasions. It's that time of year again for high school homecoming festivities, including homecoming football games and homecoming dances. Each year, new fashion trends appear and impact how we develop our corsage and boutonniere collection. Let's look at some of the fashion trends. First, the trend for girls is shorter, cocktail-style dresses as well as mid-length dresses. There is even a trend toward jumpsuits, but we're not sure if that's going to catch on! Non-matching handbags and shoes are also big in 2019. That means your shoes and handbag don't have to be the same color or even a similar style. For boys, a more casual look is in for homecoming 2019. That means a casual shirt and light trousers over a formal suit. Even gold and silver athletic shoes are popular for boys for this year's dance. With those homecoming trends in mind, we've tried to match the look with our homecoming flower collection: Boho Dreams Corsage This corsage features a unique floral arrangement of blue eryngium, orange roses, and pheasant feathers. Celebrity Style Corsage This is a luxurious corsage filled with orchids, roses, and hypericum. Call Me Darling Corsage This is a sweet corsage for homecoming with pale pink roses and alstroemeria. Succulent Corsage This on-trend homecoming corsage features a succulent along with ribbon and rhinestone accents. Custom Homecoming Flowers We have matching [...]
