Traditional flower designs do not make use of any accessories apart from the vase, but rather the focus is on the number and colours of the flowers. Oriental flower designs focus on the appearance of the arrangement, linear lines that emphasise the negative spaces and texture and form of the flowers. A modern flower arrangement includes the minimal use of bright flowers and more accessories. It does not follow the traditional outline of arranging flowers as the styling depends solely on the preferences of the designer.
Flower decorations are used as accessories too like boutonnieres that are worn by grooms, attendants, ushers and bride and groom's fathers. They are made from single or several small buds and are worn on the left lapel of the jacket. Corsages can be worn in a variety of styles like pin_on, wrist or handheld and are made of either a single bloom or a small cluster of blooms.
