Chloe's Corsage

I realized the other day that I had forgotten to post about the results of the 
 I had entered 3 designs- 2 I made especially for the contest 
and the third was one from our local prom last year... 
Chloe's corsage.


I'm fortunate to be a florist in a small town 
Fortunate to know most of my customers personally.
 Chloe lives just down the street. 
So I had to smile when I learned that HER corsage was the winner!

Her parents came to the shop with her that afternoon to pick up her corsage. 
I remember as she stood, waiting for her mom to snap the photo, I glanced at her dad 
who was looking proudly at his beautiful daughter, all dressed up- not a little girl any more.



I'll never forget that look..
So proud. so full of love.
and,
just a hint of sadness.



Prom Trends - It's all about your style!!

I was asked about prom trends recently.
Sure there are the colors that stand out from one year to the next, 
or ways to wear a corsage, or even the type of flowers used. 

But I see a stronger trend that's been gaining momentum in the 
last couple of years..

INDIVIDUALITY 

Lets go back just 7 (or so) short years ago.
Most prom corsages were seen as a lovely sentimental tradition exchanged before 
the big night in front of an excited parent's flashing camera.  
The corsage and boutonniere at that time was a one size fits all style usually in white 
(because it went with everything)

Although still a lovely tradition, corsages are NOT  'one size fits all' anymore!
 it's an additional accessory, like a piece of jewelry, that can 
compliment your look perfectly.
