This spring, you have the opportunity to adorn all of your special occasions with wearable, formal flowers. Whether celebrating the hard work and commitment of a graduating senior, letting your Mom know how much she means to you on Mother’s Day or preparing for the prom, formal flowers bring elegance and grace to every celebration.
For thousands of years, corsages have been worn for many reasons, but it was not until the 1800’s that they were worn for fashion or celebratory purposes. Traditionally worn on the bodice of a dress, the contemporary version of these popular flowers is the wrist corsage, held in place with decorative bracelets and adorned with ribbons. Corsages are have customarily been designed utilizing roses and orchids, but the floral professionals at Walter Knoll Florist are happy to work with you to create a corsage from your favorite flowers – whether carnations, alstroemeria, or unique green mums.
