Homecoming weekend is a chance for alumni to revisit their old stomping grounds and reconnect with friends; while current students look forward to pep rallies, the Homecoming Court, and the big dance. At many San Mateo area schools, everyone will gather for the football game, ready to cheer on the team against their biggest rival. Through all the events and festivities, flowers play a beautiful role - and the designers at Ah Sam Florist are ready to make this weekend one to remember!

Formal and special occasions are made even more memorable when you include traditions passed down through the years. During this season, one such tradition is the wearing of corsages for proms, graduations, or even Mother's Day. The term "corsage" is French and originally referred to the bodice of a dress. Eventually, the flowers worn with formal attire came to be known as corsages because women wore flowers pinned to their dresses. These flowers were called the "bouquet de corsage," and over time, simply "corsage."
Contemporary corsages are also worn as wristlets - but traditional or modern, a corsage from Ah Sam Florist is a beautiful touch at any celebration. Read More about Corsages for Prom & Mother’s Day »
