Accent Flowers for Formal Events

Once you’ve picked out your dress or tux, it’s time to start thinking about flowers. Corsages and boutonnieres make the perfect addition to your formal occasion. Make your prom or homecoming night even more special with a unique corsage or boutonniere designed by Casey's. Our designers walk you through the process, helping you choose the perfect flower design, with your date's favorite flowers, colors, and attire in mind.

Two popular styles for dances are wrist corsages and small hand-held French nosegays. Popular flowers are mini (or sweetheart) roses, standard roses, dendrobium orchids, alstroemeria lilies, mini carnations and other small flowers such as freesia.

For truly spectacular looks, consider flowers for your hair or even a dozen roses for your date. Impress your date's parents by bringing her mother a single rose. You're sure to start your night out right with a beautiful floral arrangement made to order!

Prom and Homecoming Flower Etiquette

  • In general, the gentleman should buy a corsage or other floral arrangement for his date. Make sure to ask your date what their favorite flowers are and what color they will be wearing so you can coordinate.
  • Ladies should buy their date a boutonniere. Boutonnieres come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Boutonniere can either match your dress or not, its up to you!
  • Boutonnieres and pin-on corsages should be attached on the left - where the heart is (either on the lapel of his jacket or directly onto her dress).  If a jacket is not present, pin directly to shirt.  We also have magnetic attachments so you don't risk ripping your shirt, mid-evening.
