There are many traditions for senior proms – from the hottest fashions in gowns to renting a limousine with your friends – memories are made on this very special night. Wearable flowers are also an indispensable part of this event – it is hard to imagine a prom without corsages and boutonnieres. Whether traditional or trendy, City Line Florist is the place to call in Trumbull and Fairfield for the most beautiful flowers!

Other Spring Events: From spring dances to graduation ceremonies to Mother’s Day, there are many opportunities to add glitz and glamor with gorgeous corsages, boutonnieres, nosegay bouquets, or hairpieces.

Corsage: Originally worn in the center of the bodice of a dress, this popular gift for your date can be worn affixed to a shoulder strap, to her waist, or most likely, her wrist. Wrist corsages are the most often ordered for prom and other special occasions, and not only feature fresh, exquisite flowers but can also utilize jewelry, ribbons, sequins, feathers, and more.

Nosegay Bouquets: These small handheld bouquets are similar to bridesmaids bouquets, and generally have the stems of the flowers tied in ribbons for a compact, easy-to-hold yet beautiful arrangement. Nosegay bouquets are beginning to earn some popularity as an alternative to a corsage.

Boutonniere: The standard wearable flowers for men generally consist of one or two small blooms attached to the lapel of his suit. Like in corsages, orchids and roses are the most common flowers to use, but calla lilies, succulents, and other spring blooms are also trending, with elegant results.

Floral Crowns & Headwreaths: Beautiful floral crowns are popular for many formal events, from weddings to prom. We couldn’t resist but to model a few of our favorites for you!

Ask the expert floral designers at City Line Florist to recommend their favorite choices in your color palette – the result will be a beautifully custom design. Not to mention, our unique prom board allows you to pick your gems, bracelet, and ribbon for your flowers, allowing us to jointly create your look.
