Among various types of floral arrangements, bouquet is one of the most popular designs our students like. Although this particular floral design is mainly used for weddings, it is also popular as a gift such as a birthday present for a friend. Since the way of making bouquet is different from ordinary kind of floral arrangements, it takes much longer time to make it.
Compared to regular type of floral designs such as table arrangements or centerpiece decorations, it usually takes much longer time, say about two (2) hours to complete one bouquet. However many people would like to learn how to make bouquets. From time to time our floral school was asked if or not there was a program specializing in making bouquets.
Quite frankly we did not offer such program although bouquet making curriculum is included in a couple of courses offered by our school. Due to frequent inquiry about the program specifically designed for making bouquets, we established a special program specializing bouquets. The name of this program is Floral Design Bouquet Course which is offered for $178 covering tuition, flowers and all other materials used for making bouquets during a lesson.
Students who sign up for this course have opportunities of learning 3 pieces of bouquet. Since it takes about 2 hours to make one piece of bouquet, they are usually required to come to the classroom three times to complete this course. For the past 23 years since we started offering flower arranging lessons, so many students learned to make various kinds of bouquets. You can enjoy some of them I introduce in the slide show of this article.
At the time of weddings, cascade bouquets are used in addition to regular type of hand-tied bouquets that helps enhance the beauty of brides. As mentioned in the above, bouquets can be used not only at weddings but also as a floral gift in various occasions such as a birthday gift.
Therefore once you have mastered how to make bouquets, you can utilize your skill for making gift bouquets for various occasions even if you do not engage in wedding floral business.
