Homecoming Corsage Photo Courtesy Suzie Kostick, AIFD, CF, PFCIIt’s back to school time, which means football games, pep rallies, parades and homecoming. For many high school students, this much-anticipated day is the first big social event of the school year. For college students and alumni, the big game and the many social events surrounding homecoming are an opportunity to reconnect with old friends and celebrate the big game.

Flower crowns have increased in popularity over the past few years. They can be worn during any festive occasion, such as weddings and proms, and for special photo shoots, like maternity photos or senior class pictures. I love flower crowns! If I could wear one every day, I would.
