Wonderful Wristlets

by Shelby Shy on February 23, 2017 at 2:44 pm

Prom is such a special time! As a florist for more than 40 years, we have seen the prom corsage design change over the years. Even with all the change, flowers continue to be the star of the corsage, also known as “wristlet.” However, over the past couple of years not only has the flower been the main component of the wristlet, ribbon and flower accents have become a great way to add personality and make your wristlet uniquely yours.  Here are a few:

The blue bom dendrobium orchids are a hit with girls wearing any hue related to blue tones. A peacock feather can add some special flair.

Homecoming Couple - — Floral design by Joyce Mason-Monheim, AAF, AIFD, PFCI, AzMFWith autumn comes football, bonfires and homecoming. These traditions have been passed down for years. 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
