It’s the height of graduation season and you may be wondering what flowers are most suitable for graduations. From Verdissimo, the leading producer of preserved flowers and plants, we wanted to tell you all about graduation flowers, both for him and her, and much more.
Typical graduation flowers
Typical flowers for graduations, or even for creating flower bouquets for these events, are definitely roses.
These flowers are considered the most beautiful in the world and also are a symbol of beauty, passion, love, etc.
You can find them in numerous colors: from red, pink, white, yellow, orange, blue, green, etc. Each color represents a certain emotion, so we recommend you keep the symbolism of these flowers in mind before giving them as gifts.
If you want to get ideas for graduation flowers, go to our online store for corsages. You’ll see corsages with red, white, lilac and pink roses, etc. All these roses can always be combined with green floral filler, with the aim to give the floral detail a nice contrast.
In the store, you’ll also find great boutonnieres made from a single flower: a rose. Just like corsages, you can find boutonnieres that use roses of different colors.
The U.S. tradition of flowers at graduation
The graduation dance, known as ‘Prom,’ is a deep-rooted tradition in countries such as the United States, and even Canada and Great Britain.
It’s a dance that takes place at the end of the academic year. At this dance, tradition says that the girls should always wear a corsage and the boys a boutonniere. But, what is a corsage and a boutonniere? We’ll tell you below!
Boutonnieres and Corsages
As we mentioned in the article “Boutonnieres and Corsages” these are floral details that are given to women and men at different events, for example at weddings. However, for several decades now, these floral details have been worn by teenagers at graduation dances.
Their origins go back to the 20s in the United States, though they gained popularity in the 80s, probably due to the number of movies teenagers watched where this tradition and prom flowers were seen.
Now that you know which flowers are typical for graduations and what their origin is… don’t hesitate to surprise your dance partner during one of the most special days of high school!
At Verdissimo, we encourage you to choose preserved flowers for graduation, since they don’t need maintenance and keep their beauty over time, so you can save the flowers as a nice keepsake of your special day.
