Prom season is upon us – from spring formals to the big dance itself, there are plenty of opportunities to dress up in gorgeous attire and wear beautiful flowers. Robertson’s Flowers professionally designs custom corsages, boutonnieres, nosegay bouquets and more for every special event, whether high school dance or Mother’s Day! No matter the occasion, give us a call – we guarantee you’ll love your flowers!
Although corsages were originally worn on the bodice of a dress – even the word “corsage” refers to a corset or bodice – they have evolved over the years to be attached to shoulder straps, waistbands, and the most popular wristlets. Wrist corsages can be designed with one bloom or several, using virtually any flower. Some of the most popular are roses, lilies, and orchids. Our designers also use jewelry, ribbons, and greenery to create ornate and unique corsages.
Nosegay bouquets are small handheld bouquets, similar to bridesmaids bouquets. These compact floral bouquets are beginning to enjoy popularity as an alternative to a corsage, most notably for the mothers of the bride & groom.
The most traditional boutonnieres consisted of a single rose with greenery, but calla lilies and orchids are also popular choices. For truly one-of-a-kind lapel adornment, ask us about using succulents, mums, or greens for a sophisticated look.
Once you pick your dress (or tie), come show us! Although many people think the flowers have to match perfectly, sometimes complimentary colors and unique textures can make a strikingly beautiful impact. After years of designing gorgeous flowers for proms and other formal events, we have the experience and artistic touch that will make you stand out beautifully from the rest.
Don’t Forget! Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and your Mom will feel extra-special wearing a corsage of exquisite roses or orchids.
