Prom Season is Here in Atlanta

C2 C1Coming up is prom season so this is the time to start planning for prom flowers, prom boutonnieres, and prom corsages. We have a wide selection of prom flowers to choose from, or you can create you own custom prom corsage and matching custom prom boutonniere.

When you are getting ready to decide what type of prom flowers to get, consider the following factors:

  • What color is your dress? You don’t want to pick the same color for your flowers because no one will be able to see it, especially if it’s pinned to your prom gown. Instead, go with a complementary color that adds to your look.
  • What is your budget? There are a lot of costs with attending the prom, so make sure you set a reasonable budget for everything, including your flowers.
  • What do you like? Don’t just go with what is trendy. Pick your favorite flower and make sure the style represents what you like, not what your friends like. This is a special moment in your life so make it about you.

To give you an idea of what is possible for prom flowers, check out some examples from our prom flower collection:

  • The Fashion Pink Gerbera Daisy Corsage features hot pink gerbera daisies, faux diamond studs, ribbon and a keepsake jeweled wristlet.C3
  • The Dendrobium Orchid and Roses with Rhinestones has purple dendrobium orchids and roses along with rhinestones placed on a faux diamond “rock candy” wristlet.
  • The White Sweetheart Rose Corsage is also a wristlet design with white sweetheart roses, sheer ribbon, and floral greenery.

Each of these prom corsages has a matching prom boutonniere.C4

To show you a bit more of the diversity, here are three prom boutonnieres that also have matching prom corsages:

  • The Spring Yellow Alstromeria Lily Boutonniere offers a bright display for prom.
  • The Lavender Lisianthis Boutonniere is a unique floral display with a gold wire stem wrap.C5
  • The Classic White Rose Boutonniere offers a traditional look for prom.

We recommend ordering early for the best selection! You can also schedule an appointment to create your custom prom flowers. We deliver or you can pick up your prom flower order.C6

Celebrating the Oscars with Friends? Decorate with Flowers!

c1Many people have turned watching the Oscars into an event, inviting friends over to watch and enjoy the show with food and decorations. This year, this favorite Hollywood event lands on Sunday, February 28th.

When you are thinking of adding some sophisticated décor to set the stage for this dramatic awards show, remember that we are here to provide you with incredible flower arrangements and bouquets.c2

Check out these award-winning ideas for floral décor:

  • Radiant Tulips adds color through a glass vase full of 20 to 30 bright and bold tulips in spring colors.
  • The Monet’s Garden Cube is a European style arrangement that adds a glamorous touch with hydrangea, garden roses, and field asters in shades of yellow and blue.c3
  • Joyful Wishes offers a dramatic display with hydrangea, roses, and orchids in bold colors in a glass vase that has been accented with aspidistra and colorful décor stones.
  • Elegant Nature’s Harmony Bouquet looks similar to the stunning floral displays that they have at the Oscar parties. It includes white hydrangea, green car nations and roses, red hypericum, hanging amaranthus and blupleurum, eucalyptus and sword fern.
  • While this is Hollywood and the Oscars rather than New York and the Tony’s, this flower arrangement, entitled “Broadway,” brings the bling with hydrangea, garden roses, pink gerbera daisies and lilies in a glass that has a rhinestone jewel wrap to reflect all that bling at the awards show.c4

Besides flowers, you might also want to pick up some great gift baskets.

While they are not as spectacular as those that nominees get at the Oscars (since those are valued in the six-figure range), they still are pretty great and are a great way to “gift” your guests at your awards show party.c5

Have all your flowers delivered on Saturday so you’ll be ready for the Oscar’s the next day.

We hand deliver throughout Atlanta and offer same-day delivery on many of our flower arrangements and bouquets.

You can order by phone, drop by our Atlanta flower shop, or order through our website today!
