Choose a container that will complement the shape and color scheme you have in mind. If you are just starting out, go with a traditional size vase __ not too tall, and not to squat. As a general rule, your container should be about one_third to one_half the size of your finished arrangement. So, for a vased bouquet you'll need mostly flowers with longer stems. A smaller bowl or basket is fine, too. You'll simply have to cut stems shorter and may need floral foam to help position each bloom. It helps to start with the simpler designs and work your way up, and a vased bouquet is often recommended for a first project.
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.
