Florist Review Magazine tip of the week

Mar 20, 2017 

Sci-Fi Prom
With the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in December 2015, after a 10-year Star Wars hiatus, fans of all ages were clamoring to get in on the craze. That’s when Laura Staats of The Laurel Wreath LLC in Franklin, Wis., had the idea to incorporate the characters and other movie elements into prom boutonnieres and corsages using affordable movie-themed earrings. Laura says the earrings’ posts or wires can be easily inserted into the centers of blossoms or the stems. “Secure each earring with a dot of glue or liquid floral adhesive,” she advises, and watch your prom sales awaken.

With Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which was released last December, being a hit, and with Disney’s plan to release Star Wars: The Last Jedi in mid-December of this year and Star Wars Anthology: Han Solo in May 2018, there is likely to be Star Wars momentum for some time to come. However, if Sci-Fi isn’t your niche, you can always adapt Laura’s earring idea to any theme. So when you’re out shopping, be on the lookout for low-cost accessories that you can use to personalize your prom offerings.
