Flower Crafts

While flowers are often arranged in bouquets, we know that crafters often like to create their own arrangements.  We’ve pulled together three of our favorite types of flower crafts ranging from Ikebana to floral design.

IKEBANA

ikebana

Ikebana is an ancient Japanese art form of flower arranging that promotes balance. This process dates back to the 7th century. During this time period, offerings of beautifully arranged flowers were placed on altars. Ikebana is one of three Japanese arts of refinement. The other two are kodo (incense appreciation) and chado (tea ceremony).

 

BOUQUET Creation

floral bouquet

A bouquet is a group of flowers arranged and fastened together into a bunch. The oldest known bouquets were found in ancient Egypt. There are many styles of bouquets including cascading, crescent and nosegay.  Today many gift givers purchase flower bouquets from websites like Proflowers or the Bouqs, however more creative people may want to design their own bouquets for an extra personal touch.

 

FLORAL DESIGN

The art of arranging flowers in a decorative manner is known as floral design.  Today we see beautiful floral design at weddings or other events, however, floral design is a craft that dates back to ancient Egyptian times. There are many types of floral design styles like Nosegay Corsage, Mille de Fleur, Western Line, and more.
