This year surprise your prom date with a stylish boutonniere!
The boutonniere has come a long way from it's 16th century roots...
"boutonniere" is the French word for "buttonhole flower." Initially, the purpose of wearing a boutonniere was to ward off bad luck or evil. During the 18th & 19th centuries men became more fashionable and the boutonniere, usually a single bloom tucked in the top buttonhole of a suit jacket, became an important part of a man's attire- as important as his freshly shined shoes.
Today it is still an important part of a man's attire during special occasions such as a wedding
and of course ... PROM!
