For many high school students, this much-anticipated day is the first big social event of the school year.

The presentation of the Homecoming royalty with a king and queen, the hometown parades and of course the dances have all withstood the test of time. So with all of this tradition, how do you choose flowers that make your total look epic?

It’s all about fashion and applying the newest trends to those traditions. Fashion drives the colors, the themes and the accessories of homecoming and prom. The fall chill may be in the air, but no keeping warm with the trendy style of shorter cocktail dresses. These dresses have unique shoulders with cutouts, asymmetrical lines and the retro halter style necklines. Now apply sequins, layers of lace or tulle, and you can add fun and creativity with floral adornments.

These homecoming party dresses might be a two-piece midriff style, show textural embellishments or be the traditional long formal gown. They are available in wide varieties of floral prints, sheer fabrics, lace and illusion in just about any color palette that complements your taste. Created especially for you in colors that complement you best, from reds and blues to pastel shades of pink and lavender, and of course the traditional black. Read More
