What kind of bouquet should it be?
When you start making a bouquet, it is important to have a clear idea of what the bouquet is intended for. Should the bouquet be placed on your kitchen table, is it to wish someone strength or is it a congratulations to someone? In the first case, the choice is entirely up to you, but when it comes to wishing someone luck or congratulating them, other customs apply. For example, to wish someone strength it is better to make a more somber bouquet. When you want to congratulate someone you can be a little more exuberant and let your creativity run wild.

How do I tie the flowers?
Binding flowers is of course important. This can be done in several ways. We briefly explain a few of them:
- A bouquet can be tied with elastic. Do this by tying the ends together and twisting the elastic around a few times.
- A bouquet can be tied with string. Do this a little higher on the stem.
- A bouquet can be placed without elastic or. Do this by putting the flowers crosswise in the vase.
Putting flowers in the vase in the right way
When placing the flowers in the vase, it is important that you take a number of steps. For example, you should cut each flower stem at an angle and then place the flowers in the water as quickly as possible. You should also make sure that there are no leaves hanging in the water and that the flowers are in a good place. By a good place, we mean a place where there is no excessive sunlight, drafts or heating nearby. Also, don’t put flowers next to a fruit bowl. This is bad for the life of your bouquet.
