Thinking Outside Of The Corsage Box

It’s that time of year again — PROM is upon us! Fancy dresses, tailored suits, perfect hair, jewelry, makeup, high-heels, shiny cars, teenage girls, their dates and beautiful flowers. When these are the essentials, you know it’s bound to be a magical night! Mothers, daughters and young gentlemen everywhere are planning big things for this year’s festivities. Prom season flowers are creative designs girls will instantly fall in love with! Go the extra step to dazzle her with the details.

Whether you are a teenage girl or guy — OR their mothers  the key to choosing and creating the perfect corsage for a teen is by complementing their own particular style and the dress they’ve picked out. For the most part, the guy buys the corsage, and this can be problematic if he doesn't know what his date's dress looks like — and lets be honest, most guys need a bit of help in this department. Don’t be discouraged moms, sons and daughters, with technology and teenagers today getting a picture of the dress in just a few minutes is easy. Having a picture of the dress will result in the best possible match. Your idea of blue-green maybe totally different than that of someone else. The next thing to consider after color is the style. Is the girl going for a classic, vintage look; perhaps it’s more of a playful, colorful look? She may be into a more edgier style. 

Flowers in complementary colors instead of perfect matches can make the dress POP and really complete the over-all look! Don’t settle for just a rose-and-ribbon corsage when you can have so much more! Who’s to say flowers belong only on the wrists? I’ve seen prom flowers for the hair, prom flowers on the shoes, prom flower rings, over-the-shoulder flowers… the list goes on and on. This is another feature that depends on the style of the dress. If it’s short, make flowers for the shoes and ankles; is it off one shoulder? — adorn it with flowers! Whatever the look, have fun with it!!

Have fun and enjoy every moment — it goes FAST  parents and students alike!
