Homecoming weekend has been a tradition in this country for over a century. History tells us that in 1911, the University of Missouri invited all of its alumni back to the campus for a big football game; they also had a parade and picnic to celebrate everyone’s return. To this day, high schools and universities recognize Homecoming Weekend as a time to celebrate alumni as well as graduating seniors. Traditions and customs vary from school to school, but there is no doubt that homecoming remains a cherished annual event. From the football game to senior night, from pep rallies to the formal dance – flowers play a central role in the celebrations. At Robertson’s Flowers, we take great pride in creating gorgeous homecoming flowers for every aspect of the weekend.
Corsages and wristlets have long been a favorite for every event during the weekend, but the homecoming dance is the place to show off your florals! Tell us your color palette and our talented designed will create a one-of-a-kind corsage for you. Wrist corsages are available on various bracelets including diamonds, pearls, and cuff styles. School colors and bold, seasonal palettes are being worn by all the fashion-forward students this year!
Increasingly, nosegay bouquets are overtaking corsages as the flowers of choice for the homecoming dance. Nosegays are small, handheld bouquets that are hand tied with a ribbon and are designed to beautifully coordinate with your dress. If you’d like to stand out, floral crowns are also a popular choice.
Of course, we can’t forget the guys! Traditionally, a boutonniere was supposed to have been “plucked” from the girl’s corsage so that everyone knew they were together. These days, coordinating the boutonniere with her florals is just fine, and we offer a wide range of flowers that will stylishly grace the lapel of any young man.
Let Robertson’s Flowers design homecoming flowers that will turn heads this year! No matter how your Philadelphia area high school celebrates, we have the ideas to accessorize you beautifully. Call us today, as every one of our corsages, boutonnieres, nosegays and crowns is made to order. We hope
We hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
