It's not old-fashioned to give your date flowers for prom, especially if you ask the florist for a special touch — some extra style to make a corsage or boutonniere pop. A girl does not have to wear a wrist corsage with a plain elastic band; most florists have access to accessories with bling, and some will work with a bracelet you bring in. And who says a guy's lapel has to sport a plain old carnation? If you're looking for something special, it's important not to wait until the last minute, especially if a bracelet or other add-on needs to be ordered. Check out these ideas, created especially for tb-two* by Marisol Mangual of Irene's Florist, 743 49th St. N, St. Petersburg. Designs shown range from $19 to $30, depending on flowers and accents.
