Homecoming season has arrived in Tucson! From mid-September through October, high schools and colleges throughout our area will be planning football games and pep rallies, voting for kings and queens, and preparing for the big dance. Whether you are a returning alumni or a current student, homecoming flowers will likely be a part of the festivities- and Casas Adobes Flower Shop is here to make the weekend memorable and beautiful.
Flowers are everywhere during the homecoming weekend. Football players moms need corsages, as do members of the Homecoming Court. Depending on your school’s tradition, teachers may receive flowers from visiting alumni, and alumni themselves often wear flowers which represent school colors. When it comes to the dance, homecoming flowers traditionally consist of corsages and boutonnieres.
A Little History: The custom of wearing formal flowers to a special event dates back to the Victorian era in Europe. Initially, women wore flowers as a fragrance – but generally only well-to-do women could afford to do so, so flowers were also considered a status symbol. Eventually, flowers were relegated only to special occasions and formal affairs. When it came to unmarried couples, a prospective suitor was expected to bring the flowers to impress his date’s parents. If everyone approved, the young lady would pluck a flower from her corsage and pin it to his lapel. If you are looking to be distinctive, discuss your homecoming flowers with one of our expert floral designers! We can add decorative elements such as jewels or rhinestones; natural details like berries or succulents; and recommend unique flowers and contrasting color palettes in order to make a bold statement. If your school’s festivities are approaching, make sure you order your homecoming flowers early!
