The transition from late summer to autumn always seems to happen in the blink of an eye in Michigan! The change in seasons brings gorgeous new fresh materials, new textures, warm tones and of course, homecoming games and dances.
Flowers become accessories to wear to the dance and there are so many unique ways to wear them!
Our newest find…and we love to design these little gems…is the gold cuff bracelet corsage! Super comfy and fun to wear, these bracelets adjust to any size wrist and work beautifully with mini succulents, ranunculus blooms and textural accents. Prices range from $32-39. Call to inquire about other color options.
Boutonnieres can also be unique and textural with succulents, thistle, pods, berries and eucalyptus leaves. Prices range from $15-17.
Another favorite of both, our designers and past clients is the pearl or rhinestone bracelet corsage. Petite spray roses and fillers make these just the right size to wear comfortably without too much fuss. Prices range from $35-42.
The options are endless for boutonnieres and corsages. Give us a call or stop by the studio to let us assist you.

As I prepare the studio for Prom Season each year, I always try to stay aware of the current trends in clothing, shoes, etc. This helps me understand which direction to head with the floral accents. I’ve noticed that the traditional gowns are getting a modern twist with more color, pattern and even a new two piece option this year. Not only am I seeing these online but several girls have already been in the shop to share their dresses as they begin shopping for their corsages and boutonnieres and I’m seeing the same look. Super adorable.
It got me wondering what other options I could offer to wear as a floral accent for prom. Think…floral jewelry (rings, earrings and necklaces) along with the traditionally accepted floral bracelet aka wrist corsage.
And how about a flower enhanced bag or purse to carry to the dance?
We have so many unique bands and gorgeous wire products available- a corsage on the wrist can look more like a “floral bracelet.”
And we can’t forget the guys! Here are a few of the new tux trends for 2016. Love the use of pattern, as well as the contrasting color on the lapels.
We typically design a boutonniere to coordinate with the color scheme that the date is wearing. Roses are the most often requested blooms but here are a few more unique offerings to consider, too.
Give us a call at 810-227-9500 or stop by to talk with us. I highly advise placing your order as least a week or more before the big day. Thanks for reading!
Why give a corsage? It is an age old tradition that a small bouquet of flowers is presented to a date when going to a dance. At the start, these were either carried or pinned on to the bodice of a dress. As times changed, the idea of wearing the flowers on the wrist seemed more modern and almost like “floral jewelry.” Today, the floral trend has even moved as far as floral necklaces, rings and earrings thanks to Francoise Weeks‘ amazing work. 🙂
Over the past few years my favorite corsage has been the wrap bracelet. It fits almost any size wrist, stays in place nicely and comes in a variety of colors. I highly recommend this for high school age dance goers- seriously they are comfortable!
My favorite look for the younger dance goers, think, “Daddy Daughter Dance,” is a petite pearl bracelet band. These bracelets in the smaller size have made a world of difference in designing for tiny wrists. A bit of ribbon, a few small buds, filler and a bit of bling and these corsages are easy to wear and become a keepsake bracelet later.
And…another great option for a younger girl is a petite bouquet or nosegay to carry rather than wear. These can be matched to their outfit and finished with ribbons.
