Horticulture seniors Lynn Edmiston and Rachel Bechler make white corsages. With experience in preparing floral arrangements for all sorts of events, ranging from simple table settings to weddings, the Horticulture class is prepared to tackle this challenge. Horticulture class has been taking orders for corsages and boutonnieres since the beginning of the week, and they each cost about $20.

“It is tradition to make corsages and boutonnieres every year for prom.” Lynn Edmiston says.

A corsage is a small arrangement of flowers on a bracelet typically worn on the wrist of a female date to a formal event, such as prom. A boutonniere is a small arrangement of flowers that look like a mini bouquet pinned onto the jacket of a male date. Traditionally, these are made and purchased from local flower shops, or in this case, from the local Horticulture class.

“Wrist corsages each take about 25 minutes to make, and boutonnieres each take about 10 minutes.” Said Rachel Bechler. The arrangements are available in a wide variety of colors. Each arrangement takes careful planning to create the balanced, attractive look. Making quality arrangements is not a task without skill, each student has developed an artistic eye to make sure that the arrangement looks just right.
