Although several schools have claimed responsibility for the first homecoming celebration, it is customarily attributed to the University of Missouri. In 1911, the school invited all of their alumni to a home football game and held a parade to commemorate everyone’s return. To this day, homecoming weekend is usually centered around a football game, with dances, parades, and parties also being popular customs. All over Baton Rouge, high schools and colleges are preparing for Homecoming 2016 – and Billy Heroman’s Flowers has all the formal flowers for the dance, the homecoming court, and the big game!
Corsages and wristlets are often ordered over homecoming weekend – for mothers of the football players, for members of the homecoming court, and for the girls going to the dances.
These beautiful designs can be created in any colors – to match a dress, or to exhibit school spirit by displaying your team’s colors. Tell us the colors that will work for you, and we’ll create the perfect accessory.
Don’t forget the guys! Whether escorting the Homecoming Queen or heading to the school formal, a classic boutonniere earns big style points.
Our talented floral designers have created some spectacular wristlets. This one was imagined and arranged by Traci, and features a decorative stone band. If you prefer a different band. we are happy to work with you.
These days, many homecoming events – from the game to the dance – are less formal than in the past. All the more reason for the young men to pin a classic red rose to their lapel. Even when dressed casually, a single elegant bloom turns him into a sharp dressed man.
At Billy Heroman’s Flowers, we love to create the formal flowers you need to celebrate the entire homecoming weekend – from the football field to the dance floor. Give us a call, and let us know how we can help you to add some style to the weekend.
