Homecoming weekend is coming to Baton Rouge, and we are ready for the party! Whether you are looking forward to cheering on the football team, seeing who wins Homecoming Queen, or attending the pep rally with students and alumni – this is a weekend designed to make memories.
Flowers are also likely to be a big part of the weekend – from bouquets for the homecoming court to a corsage for your date, Billy Heroman’s Flowers has all of the most beautiful designs and arrangements. What is your homecoming style?
Corsages have a long history and tradition dating back to the Victorian Era – but that doesn’t mean your flowers have to be old-school! Our floral designers are here to help you to create corsages and boutonnieres that are trendy, colorful, fun and fashion forward – here are a few tips to inspire you!
First Things First: Before you decide upon your must-have flowers, find your dress. The color and style will help us to design the perfect flowers for your overall look. Remember, colors do not have to match perfectly. In fact, consider contrasting color palettes, mixed florals, or varied shades to create a striking effect.
Be Flexible: That gorgeous Pinterest corsage may not be practical, if flowers are out of season or unavailable at a reasonable price. But definitely bring in the photo for inspiration, and we will create one-of-a-kind homecoming flowers that will make a bold statement.
Solicit Recommendations: Our floral experts may have a suggestion for a unique flower or decorative element that you hadn’t thought of. Often, we can create something within your budget that is more beautiful than what you envisioned!
About that Boutonniere: The original boutonnieres were actually plucked directly from the corsage itself. So definitely choose a boutonniere that utilizes the same florals and design concept as the corsage, but feel free to use a little artistic license as well.
You will likely remember your homecoming dance for a lifetime – and Billy Heroman’s Flowers is here to make sure that those memories are beautiful. Order early, and we will take care of the rest.
