An individually designed flower bouquet makes for an ideal gift as it is thoughtful with a personal touch. Keep in mind whom the bouquet is being created for. The tone of the bouquet is largely determined by the colours you choose. It would be preferable to choose the receiver's favourite colour as theme for the arrangement or bouquet.
In the fifteenth century the nosegay (an appeal to the nose), flowers or herbs tied together with a sweet_smelling fragrance was worn around the neck for a satisfactory smell, and to mask foul odors. Proper women of the Victorian Era society carried these bouquets at most social gatherings and Judges would often carry them into their court room and wear around their neck to ward off the unpleasant smell of the streets.
