It's Prom Season!

We've already had a few proms in the Valley, but the majority of them take place in the next few weeks. Our stores have been flooded with juniors and seniors (and their moms) shopping for the perfect prom corsage to match the dress, or the boutonniere to serve as the finishing touch of on a crisp tuxedo.

One of our top-selling corsages this year isn't a traditional wrist corsage; it's our Fashionista arm band, which features white cymbidium orchids on a crystal, adjustable band that can be worn on the upper arm or wrist. The best attribute of this choice is that it matches any color dress.

For something a little more exotic, our Enchantment corsage features green cymbidium orchids with peacock feathers. Gals wearing blue, brown, black or green will find this corsage to be a fabulous accent.

If she's anything but ordinary, the Cross My Heart corsage might be the one for her.Succulents, safari sunset, and hypericum combine with copper wire. Wouldn't it be perfect with a black, red or green dress?

For the guys, we have the largest selection of prom boutonnieres in Cactus Flower history. Choose from billy ball boutonnieres to a blinged-out calla lily.

The Color of 2012: Tangerine Tango

Oh, how we love following the Pantone Fashion Color Reports. The Pantone Spring 2012 report included a vivacious reddish orange called Tangerine Tango, which subsequently inspired the Pantone folks to name it the Color of 2012.

If 2012 is the year to recharge, then this color was appropriately chosen. What could be more motivating than a punchy pop of orange?

Fashion designers such as Tommy Hilfiger, Adrienne Vittadini, and Elie Tahari have included Tangerine Tango in their spring lines. Home decor stores like Lamps Plus have a Tangerine Tango Pinterest board. And Sephora launched a complete line of product in Tangerine Tango, as well as a national marketing campaign:

Well, it's only natural for Cactus Flower to jump on the bandwagon with an exclusive collection of arrangements in this energizing color! Check out Cactus Flower's Tangerine Tango collection, featuring fashion-forward floral bouquets in orange hues. Or click on our own Pinterest board to see the arrangements as well as home decor that inspires us.
