    Corsages were de rigueur... birthdays, Easter, Proms Mothers day... My mom would always wear a giant carnation in fall colors to the Thanksgiving Day football game . Most were fastened with either long "pearl-handled" pins or some other clip pin. Also wrist corsages for the younger gals( usually had a wrist elastic). They were always real flowers: orchids roses you name it... any florist would make one and they'd be delivered in a box which often had a clear plastic cover. Kept in the "ice box" if the event was the next day (and afterwards as well to try to preserve the blossoms).
    Certainly a bygone phenom... a veritable expression of gentility... Ahhh the romance...
