Not your ordinary prom flowers or escort
A good friend asked me over a few weeks ago to take some photos of her daughter, shown above, dressed for the high school prom.
Several days later, when I showed this photo around the newsroom where I work, everyone said the girl was lovely before being immediately drawn to her unusual bouquet of flowers.
“Those are so different,” most of them said. That was followed by questions about what her date had on his head.
The boy was among several at Belle Vernon Area High School in Southwestern Pennsylvania who chose to wear baseball caps backwards rather than crown their heads with top hats to match their tuxedos. Weird fad, I thought, before asking him to remove the hat for some shots to keep when he grows up.
That said, it’s nice to know there is one florist in this hard-pressed Mon Valley owned by someone with an imagination. So if you’re looking for something different to mark a special occasion, consider placing an order at the place that delivered the arrangement, Monessen Florist.
