Certain race days require certain flowers

It is rather sweet and certainly adds to the occasion that each major race day (throughout the Spring Racing Carnival) has a flower dedicated to that day.
This is for men who wish to have flowers in their buttonholes (or Boutonnière as the French say). Some might even like to coordinate their outfits with certain flowers for example choosing a shirt and tie to tone with the tiny Ceil Brunner rose on Cox Plate Day.
But flowers are also important for women who wear them as a corsage, use them to dress up their hair, sport attractive floral bracelets or add them as gorgeous decorations to their hats.
