It is no secret that football is a pretty big deal in Texas. All across the Houston area, high schools and universities are planning their homecoming weekend around a big football game. This tradition is believed to have originated at a University of Missouri football game in 1911. The school had planned a celebration, inviting all their alumni back to campus. There were parades and picnics, and it all culminated in a rousing game. To this day, there are various customs depending on the school, and festivities range from parades and cookouts to senior nights and dances. No matter your reason for homecoming flowers, Breen’s Florist has the creations sure to make it more special.
Whether the recipient is the mom of the star football player, the head cheerleader or your date to the big dance – our corsages and wristlets are designed to help you to add that extra special homecoming touch. Designs can match your dress or your school colors – choose from our predesigned selections or let us know the perfect flowers for your occasion. And to keep the guys looking sharp as well, we are happy to provide matching boutonnieres for any corsage. Even though many dances are not as formal as they once were, there is still reason to celebrate – and flowers are appropriate any time.
