Japanese flower arrangement, also known as Ikebana, focus on the line of the twigs and leaves, rather than on the flowers themselves like in Western designs. The line of the twigs or leaves is combined with a small number of blooms and the design is complemented by the style of the container which is also a key element in the Ikebana style.
Flowers make a great gift. No matter the age or sex of the receiver, you can be sure that it will brighten their day. It is also a gift that in its own unique way is a form of art. There is much thought and creativity involved in floristry. Styles and designs differ between era, nations and from florist to florist.
