Bouquets, a French word with no English equivalent, would be defined as a bunch of flowers tied together. It is the most popular floral gift, especially during the festive seasons and for special occasions, due to its simple design and mobility. Individual flowers are cut, preened, arranged and tied together or wrapped in waterproof material because the bouquet is kept damp. The type of flowers used in a bouquet depends on the occasion, but much like modern flower arrangements, the choice depends on the florist.
Fall color palettes will be more refined, with a variety of rich textures gaining in importance. Look for dried grasses and berries accenting mini callas, Leonidas roses, and Asiatic lilies. Color selections are graced by rust, bronze, amber or copper hues. Centerpieces will be natural yet elegant with deeper color accents.
