homecominga3Now that school has been underway for a few weeks, it’s time for that long-standing tradition of the Homecoming football game and dance. This is the time of year where new, returning, and past students come together to socialize and celebrate their school spirit.

With it comes one of the biggest dances of the year next to Prom at the end of the school year. Girls don their finest dresses and the boys rent a tuxedo for a fun night out.homecominga2

Now that it’s time to order homecoming corsages and homecoming boutonnieres, we wanted to provide a few highlights of what our San Diego flower shops can create as well as offer some hints on how to pick the right corsage and boutonniere.

Things to Think about When Picking a Corsage or Boutonniere

Whether you are buying one or both, there are some things to think about in order to get the perfect homecoming corsage or homecoming boutonniere:

  • What color is your dress?  It should coordinate with your dress but not necessarily be the same color of it could get blend in too much, especially if it is pinned on your dress and not worn as a wrist corsage.
  • What type of dress do you have? If you have a strapless dress, it is better to opt for a wrist corsage or a nosegay corsage (a small bouquet).
  • What is the individual style of you and your date? Think about if you like traditional flowers or you may enjoy something alternative that represents fall like the use of berries, wheat, or raffia. Maybe you even like a little bling like rhinestones or gold tipped leaves.homecominga4
  • What is your budget? While there are a lot of options to suit every budget, you need to think about what you can afford given the other costs for homecoming, including that limo ride!

Whatever you choose, the corsage and the boutonniere typically coordinate, so make sure you both can agree on what you like!
