The sickle seems like a bad choice on a crowded dance floor.

I assume that the sickle (and flowers) would be put down so somewhere, perhaps with a chaperone, before dancing. Thinking about it, a sickle would be a good accessory for a chaperone without any sense of subtlety.

Hmm, my comment didn't post. Props would have been stashed somewhere while dancing, so a good host(ess) would provide a prop table for them as combination storage and display.
