Does anyone sell wristlets and boutonnieres as a homecoming or prom fundraiser? If so, what options do you offer, how much do you charge? Any advice is welcome!
We did sales for Mother's Day. Attached is our order form/price list. Sales were good, though we are considering having vases as an option also. Prices were on the lower end, because we were more interested in the practice and starting it up. One of the Floriculture team members made corsage for friends for prom - prices were higher because those corsages were more detailed, had extra adoration, and the flowers were higher quality. I don't remember the prices, but I am thinking in the $20 to $30 range, depending on the flowers they wanted.
College Station High School, in Texas, do an amazing job with floriculture. Their website might be helpful. http://www.collegestation.ffanow.org/default.aspx?ID=35636
We sell corsages and bouts every year for prom. It's a HUGE success for us! I am attaching the order form to this post. I sell the flowers at least two weeks before the event and stop sales at least 5 days before the event (to allow time to order flowers). I usually make several extras in basic colors (black, white, pink and turquoise) that I sell for a higher price the day before the event.
I make tie-on corsages (with ribbon or tulle), wire bracelets (hand-made by students or myself) and elastic wristlets. I would definitely recommend starting with just one for the first go round and building from there. We price ours VERY low to help our huge population of low income students (over 60%), but it is definitely up to you on pricing. The orchids the order form (attached) is referring to are dendrobiums (they are very inexpensive for the # of flowers you actually get on each stem) and I only order white for those.
I also print quarter sheet sized flyers (also attached) for the prom tickets seller. She gives every student a flyer as they purchase their ticket(s).
Good luck!!! I hope this helped
