Flower Arrangements Vs. Bouquets: Which to Send and Why
Many people aren’t fully aware of what the difference between a flower arrangement and a bouquet is, so when the opportunity arises to give the gift of flowers, they’re not sure which option is best to choose.
In this blog, we explain the main differences between bouquets and flower arrangements, as well as exploring when you should send each one.
What is a Flower Arrangement?
A flower arrangement is a selection of flowers and foliage displayed in a container of some kind, this may be a vase, box, basket or ceramic.
Arrangements tend to be complex in design and are available in various shapes, sizes and colour schemes.
When Should You Send a Flower Arrangement?
Flower arrangements are essentially ready-made gifts, the recipient doesn’t have to worry about how they’re going to arrange them into a stunning floral display because it’s already been done for them.
What is a Bouquet?
A bouquet is a group of flowers, usually selected for their scent or colour, that are bound together and wrapped in decorative paper. Depending on individual preference, some bouquets might also include foliage and greenery to compliment the chosen flowers.
When Should You Send a Bouquet?
Bouquets are sold without a vase or container, so the recipient will need to supply their own and arrange the flowers themselves.
Although they might involve a little extra effort from whoever is on the receiving end, bouquets are much easier to carry and deliver personally – which makes them great for special occasions such as birthdays, Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day.
