Homecoming has been around since the early 1900s. After more than a century the Homecoming tradition hasn’t changed much. For most, it’s a time for celebration, nostalgia, and team spirit.
Homecoming also ushers in the year’s first major dance when students have some fun and lighten up as they prepare for the school year ahead. Flowers in the form of Corsages & Boutonnieres play a major part in this tradition. And for your flower needs, Fiesta Flowers Plants & Gifts has you covered.
Whether it’s for decoration, Boutonnieres, Corsages or flowers for your hair, it is important to use the appropriate flowers and those that bloom during the Homecoming season. Here are a few suggestions from Fiesta Flowers.
This is perhaps the go-to flower for any occasion. If you’re confused on which flower to buy, start with Roses. Roses also look striking on Boutonnieres, wrist Corsages, and traditional Pin-On Corsages. Roses also come in a wide variety of shades and colors so you will be able to match or complement any dress color. From bold reds and yellows to soft pastel colors, the possibilities for using Roses to accentuate a dress are limitless. You can even use a contrasting color to highlight the accessory. And while you’re at it, why not go even more elegant by mixing in sequins, pearls or rhinestone gems for a little extra flair?
Roses may be versatile but if you want to stick to traditions, Chrysanthemums are the perfect choice. Also called ‘Mums’ or ‘Chrysanths’, this lively flower variety goes well with mixed bouquets and as lovely accents to boutonnieres and corsages. Girls will surely be swept off their feet when presented with a luscious lavender themed Chrysanthemum Corsage accentuated with royal purple shades.
Another traditional flower choice during Homecoming season is the Carnations. This flower offers elegant and rich textured blooms and can come in a wide variety of colors so mixing and matching is never an issue. Carnations are available in solid tones but a few varieties come in blends of two or more colors. They are great for boutonnieres and corsages because of their compact, complex, and layered shape. Whether you want to use Mini Carnations as accent flower, or the full size Carnations as the focal part of the Corsage, Boutonniere, arrangement or bouquet, you can’t go wrong with this bloom.
If Roses, Chrysanthemums, and Carnations, seem too basic for you and you want a more exotic look for your flower arrangements and accents without sacrificing elegance, Orchids are the perfect choice. They come in different shades of white, purple, and pink. Some varieties are even gifted with blends of different colors. For that chic and beautiful Corsage, choose an Orchid instead of the more common blooms. Whether it’s for a guy’s Boutonniere or a girl’s Corsage, Orchids will look stunning and elegant. You can even present a bouquet of Orchids as a nice gift for that special someone.
Flowers are beautiful on their own but arranging and mixing a few varieties will make them stand out even more.
