Butera the Florist to showcase Interactive Wristlet Bar

My, how things have changed. When I went to prom 10 years ago, my corsage was a mass of giant white carnations and baby’s breath that didn’t allow me to bend my wrist the entire evening.

Today’s prom flowers are a bit different.

“They’re very young looking,” said Megan Chronister, a floral designer at Butera the Florist.

Parents and prom-goers can check out the latest floral fashions at the store’s Prom Showcase from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. The event, held at Butera’s 178 Leaders Heights Road, York Township, location, will highlight its Interactive Wristlet Bar.

The bar allows guys and gals to personalize corsages with trendy flowers, feathers, ribbons, beads and bling for the same price they’d pay for something more traditional.


Chronister said the bar makes prom flowers more of an experience than an add-on to the evening.

“It’s something different, because each girl has her own specific wristlet,” she said. “There isn’t going to be anyone else there with the same one. It kind of mirrors the idea of not having the same dress as anyone else. … They want to be unique.”

Chronister said Butera the Florist has been doing the wristelt bar for a few years now and have seen a transformation in the high school tradition.

“A lot of them wear the bracelets all year as a memento since they are in a current style,” she said. “They like to remember who gave it to them.”

Chronister said it’s a mix of who is doing the designing, but it’s really based on the couple.

“We have some guys who come in and are very detailed of what the girls want — and what they want to include, as well,” she said. “But we also have girls who come in and take care of everything.”
