Homecoming weekend is always a special time when you’re returning to your former school for some nostalgia. The highlight of the event is usually the formal dance, and flowers play an important role. Fiesta Flowers, Plants & Gifts can create beautiful wearable flower accessories…we specialize in unique Boutonnieres and Corsages for this special occasion.
The use of Boutonnieres and Corsages can be traced back to the 1800s. In keeping up with current trends, Fiesta Flowers Plants & Gifts creates unique wearable flowers that are exciting, contemporary and modern to match any homecoming style or theme.
Here are a few tips from our experts on how to stand out during the homecoming dance.
Wearing it Best
Combine flowers with jewelry using a keepsake bracelet, the updated version of the traditional corsage wristlet. Fiesta Flowers has many styles to choose from….rhinestones keepsake bracelets in clear diamond, rose gold diamond, gold diamond, iridescent diamond and black diamond, red diamond, pink diamond and mint green diamond as well as beaded bracelets in pearl, pewter, silver, gold, rose gold, black, white, iridescent, pink and aqua. We design these keepsake bracelets with over 150 ribbons to choose from, rhinestone sprays, beads and colorful wire to create a piece that is both unique and personal. For even more variations, we also design floral crowns and necklaces.
During the more traditional days, it was highly recommended to use monochromatic Corsages to match the dress’ color perfectly. Times have changed and colors are more liberally used nowadays. To make sure that florals don’t blend with the dress, Fiesta Flowers Plants & Gifts uses distinct accents, varied color palettes, and complementary colors to create a unique and elegant fashion statement especially for you.
Being Creative and Flexible. Pinterest is a vast source of ideas for Corsages and Boutonnieres. Unfortunately, not all of the flowers shown there are available locally or are currently in season. Some may not match the style of the dress. Fiesta Flowers takes everything into consideration such as the wearer’s favorite seasonal colors, the dress to be worn, and the inspiration piece to come up with a design unlike any other.
The traditional rose corsage may be lovely and sophisticated by itself but some want to go a bit more edgy and adventurous. The designers at Fiesta Flowers Plants & Gifts can suggest in-season flowers that are not usually used in a corsage like Calla Lilies, Matsumoto Asters, and Viking Mums that look like a mini Sunflower.
In order to avoid the rush, here are some tips from Fiesta Flowers.
- Order early so that we have time to obtain the flowers in season and we are able to obtain what you are seeking by ordering from our farm
- Pick the dress to be worn in the homecoming before ordering the flowers. That doesn’t mean the color of the flowers should perfectly match the color of the dress. Actually, it’s better if the flowers don’t blend in. The contrasting colors give that striking look and ensure that the flowers and dress are noticed. Since we have over 150 ribbons to choose from, you are sure to find a ribbon that will match or compliment the dress perfectly
- The floral designers at Fiesta Flowers Plants & Gifts can be treated as personal stylists and will create your beautiful and unique pieces based on the chosen colors, the available flowers, and the style of the dress.
- Fiesta Flowers designs Corsages with rhinestones, faux pearls, ribbons, and tulle. Flowers are added to that personalized, gorgeous design.
