Do you wear corsage to graduation?
A wrist corsage for a girl and a lapel boutonniere for a boy are usually given by the parents of the senior before the ceremony. The tradition of wearing a corsage goes back to ancient Greece when women wore flowers for protection from spirits and for good luck. Boutonnières came to us from France where they were used to ward off bad luck and evil spirits.
Some might think that this tradition is already outdated and not relevant at all. On the contrary, our San Francisco florist finds wearing corsages and boutonnieres a creative way to keep up with traditions. She handcrafts corsages and boutonniere which look stylish, modern and always match graduation gowns.
