Homecoming celebrations have been a tradition at high schools and universities for over a century, with the first official celebrations occurring in the early 1900’s. Although many schools claim they were the first to stage a weekend honoring returning alumni, the most well documented is that of the University of Missouri in 1911. At that event, the weekend revolved around a football game, still our most popular custom today. However, the big game is just the beginning – schools host barbecues, parades, mixers for alumni and of course – a formal dance for the current students of the school. You may be looking for formal flowers for the big dance, or perhaps you want to honor the mother of the quarterback or your favorite teacher from years gone by. Casas Adobes is your Tucson headquarters for all things homecoming.
Traditional corsage or trendy wristlet, our wearable flowers are a favorite year after year. Created from roses, orchids, carnations – and in a variety of colors – these beautiful creations can be custom ordered to match a dress or school colors. Wristlets offer a classic selection of bands, from pearls to silver to colored stones. These lovely bands turn flowers into jewelry, and are a stunning way to show off your school spirit! To see the full inventory of wristlet bands, stop by our flower shop or give us a call – we’ll be happy to help you out. (Please note that inventory may vary.)
Don’t forget, we also have boutonnieres for him and congratulatory bouquets for the homecoming court. Throughout the month of September, schools across Tucson and Oro Valley will be celebrating their Homecoming. We’d like to wish the alumni, students and staff at Ironwood High School, Catalina Foothills High School, Mountain View High School and Canyon Del Oro High School a great weekend! Remember, whatever your floral needs for all the festivities, Casas Adobes Flower Shop is your one-stop source for formal flowers.
