Professional florists would categorise the styles of flower arrangements as such: Traditional, oriental and modern flower arrangements. Traditional flower design, also known as Western flower arrangements, is the time_honoured common flower arranging style where the design is enriched with a large number of beautiful, colourful flowers. Apart from the vase in which the flowers are arranged, almost no other accessories are used in this flower style.
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.
