Top 3 reasons you need to order Prom Flowers Early

With Prom Season just around the corner, here are my Top 3 Reasons you need to order your Prom Flowers early! Reason #1 ~ each one is made custom, just for you. Each corsage, hand tied bouquet or boutonniere is a one of of kind floral creation. Not only does it take time for our Talented Floral Designers to create each one, we often need to special order the flowers needed to meet your design expectation. Reason #2 ~ Our time to create Prom flowers is limited  Because Prom flowers are designed by hand and take more time than you can imagine, it's important to get your order in early so that we can actually take your order. Waiting till the last minute may mean that we don't have designers available to make one for you. Because they are made with fresh flowers and can't be created too far in advance, we only have so many design hours to devote to making Prom flowers . Prom season is also the time of year that florists are very busy with other events such as Wedding

All of Your Prom Corsage and Boutonniere Questions- Answered!

All of Your Prom Corsage and Boutonniere Questions- Answered! What is a prom corsage? A prom corsage is a small floral arrangement to be worn on a female’s wrist or collar. The prom corsage is typically purchased and given to her by her prom date. The wrist corsage is the most common kind, and is typically chosen to match the prom dress. What is a boutonniere? A boutonniere is a floral design worn by a male on the lapel of a suit or tux. The boutonniere is typically bought for him by his prom date and is chosen to match the prom corsage. What wrist is the corsage worn on? Proper etiquette calls for the corsage to be worn on the left wrist, unless the person wearing it is left-handed. If left-handed, the corsage can be worn on the right wrist. Do the corsage and boutonniere have to match? It is not a rule that they match, however the couple will look more put together if they do. The boutonniere gives a touch of color to match the male to his prom date though

Prom Flower Trends for 2013

Can you believe that in a few short months we will be back into Prom Season? Well, we are hard at work designing new options for the young ladies and based on the trends we see for 2013, we believe that " wearable " flowers are going to be big. Take this head band for example. Baby roses , waxflowers and orchids accented with silver leaves on a rhinestone band accented with a touch of fresh ivy. What we like most about these rhinestone head bands is that after the prom is over, you have a lovely keepsake jewelry that you can wear again and again for years to come.   Still popular are designs like this wristlet corsage made from dendrobium orchids that are stem dyed a bright blue. This is certainly not your Mom's corsages!  Be sure to check the Prom Category of our website over the next month or so as we'll be adding lots of new corsage designs for 2013! Remember, we have 2 locations for all your Prom flower needs - Princeton Forrestal Village in Plainsboro and 4

Feeling Like Cinderella

 We had so much fun working on the Cinderella's Closet Event this past weekend at Novo Nordisk! Talk about making these girls feel special. The staff and volunteers at Novo did an amazing job collecting prom gowns, shoes and even accessories such as handbags and jewelry. On the day the girls came to the office to choose their dresses, Novo had us decorate the office to create a prom like setting to welcome them.  For those of your not familar with Cinderella's Closet, it's a non profit organization that matches up girls who need prom attire with beautiful, donated ones. Isn't that a wonderful thing?  The weeks leading up to the big "shopping" day, we provided balloons at the office on collection days to create excitement among the employees. Well, they came thru with flying colors, collecting and donation over 300 gowns! Wow!  We loved creating the decor and the staff at Novo seemed very pleased. All in all it was a great event with many vendors and b

Tiny Nosegays

Tiny Nosegays , originally uploaded by Georgianne at Monday Morning Flowers . Can't decide if you want mom to wear flowers at your wedding? How about considering a small hand tied bouquet for her instead of a corsage? These little nosegays were easy to carry, looked nice in photos and held up nicely all day long. Roses are a wonderful choice and by adding interesting foliage and/or ribbon, they go from ordinary to something special. Going to prom soon? Why not ask you date for a hand tied bouquet instead of a wrist corsage? They look wonderful in pictures and allow your florist to be creative to match your gown colors. Stand out and do something a bit different. I'll bet everyone will notice!

Flowers for Men

Brides sometimes ask if the men in the wedding party have to wear flowers and I tell them, not if they don't want to. Personally I think there are few times in life to get dressed up and wear a flower so why not have fun with it. A rose boutonniere is always classic but why not do something a bit funky or fun. This handsome groomsmen (yes, he is handsome, even though I have cut off his face for this blog, sorry James) wore this blue thistle on his lapel and I think it looked spashing! Created for the wedding of Tammy and Mike (our past employee) this past February, the blue thistle was used in most of the flower arrangements including the bouquets and centerpieces. I liked the use of thistle for the men because it helped to carry the natural, artsie feel of the flowers right through the whole wedding. Do the boys have to wear flowers? Not really but oh my, it can be fun!!
