Thank and Treat Your Long Beach Admins!

Gift for MenFrom April 20 to April 26th, it’s time to celebrate your administrative professionals that keep you on time, organized, and covered on all the details while you focus on your core business.

Prom Time in Long Beach!

april7lb1Another school year is nearly over and many juniors and seniors are now planning for the big dance that closes out the year.

That’s right, it’s prom time at all Long Beach high schools, so we are already beginning to take orders for corsages, boutonnieres, and even flowers for the hair.

To help you get your high school student ready for the big dance, we’re here to offer advice on what looks best and how to choose something that offers beauty and value on a day that involves a lot of decisions about dresses, tuxes, limos, hair and makeup and dinner.april7lb2

Prom Flower Planning & Advice

Every year, there are trends in prom flowers that reflect the ongoing changes in fashion – from the retro look to the bling fling to the sophisticated set.

Our floral design team regularly peruses the fashion magazines to keep up on the latest dress trends to see how they can create corsages and floral designs for the hair to coordinate and showcase that style.

Whatever the trend, you don’t have to match the flower color to the dress.

If anything, you want to pick a color that coordinates but adds some contrast as you wear the corsage on your wrist or pinned on your dress. Of course, your final selection should match your date’s boutonniere in color and flower variety.april7lb6

Our Prom Flower Selection

We are proud to offer an extensive prom flower collection that represents a wide range of styles, flower varieties, and colors. This year, we have even added flowers for the hair, which is a beautiful addition for your prom ensemble.

Our website illustrates the real diversity in design that you can have with corsages that were once only about a couple of flowers tied together.april7lb3

Today, we can add all types of accents, such as rhinestones, pearls, and other custom jewelry as well as create bracelets that showcase the flowers.

Even boutonnieres can have a unique look as the pictures here show. Anything we can do that is unique and sets you apart from the rest of the prom crowd makes the night that much more special.april7lb4

Prom Flower Services

At Allen’s Flower Market of Long Beach, we understand just how much goes into getting ready for prom, including the errands to pick up an altered dress, a trip to the hair salon, and tuxedo pick-up.

That’s why we offer prom flower delivery so you can save yourself one errand and spend more time getting ready for the big dance!
