Homecoming has been an annual tradition since the early 1900s, and the events of the weekend haven’t changed much in over a century. Most homecomings are planned around a central event, usually a football game – with other weekend activities including senior nights, pep rallies, dances, parades, and often, the presentation of the homecoming court and the coronation of a Homecoming King or Queen. Homecoming flowers play a major role throughout all the festivities – they are given to the homecoming court, worn by those attending a formal dance, and presented to honor moms and special teachers. From wristlet to boutonniere, Central Square Florist has the beautiful formal flowers you’ll be looking for.
The Football Game: Often during these events, the senior football players and cheerleaders are honored as they participate in their last season before graduation. Corsages and wristlets are also sometimes given to the mothers of the students being recognized.
The Homecoming Dance: Wristlets can be arranged on a variety of wristlet bands, from ribbons to pearls; and boutonnieres can be designed to match the young lady’s corsage.
The King and Queen’s Court: It is also traditional to present each member of the court with a bouquet or nosegay to carry, with the Queen customarily receiving the largest bouquet. Many schools choose roses, but the bouquets can also be designed to exhibit school colors. If your high school or university is having an event that you need custom arrangements for, give us a call! We’ll use your school colors as inspiration and create beautiful formal flowers.
Whatever your scheduled events, flowers make every occasion more special – and in Cambridge, the place for all your homecoming and formal flower needs is Central Square Florist.
