It is getting close to Valentine’s day which is February 14. Florists are getting started to make advertising for the sale of Valentine’s day floral gifts. After viewing some of their sales campaign on their floral design products, I notice that the majority of designs for Valentine’s day floral gifts are bouquets. This means that bouquet is one of very popular floral gifts and many people love this particular gift.
The most well known use of bouquets is wedding bouquets which are held by brides. And this is one of mandatory items for weddings. As a floral arrangement instructor, I teach how to make bouquets at my classroom on a regular basis. As this is very important and mandatory item for those who learn floral designs, the curriculum of some of our school’s programs cover the lesson of making bouquets.
If you have ever experienced to make bouquets, you must recognize that it takes a lot of time to complete a bouquet. I can say making bouquets is a time consuming project. Compared with regular type of floral arrangements such as centerpiece decoration, it takes twice the time to make bouquets. Concretely speaking about two hours must be spent to complete one bouquet at the classroom.
Nevertheless many students want to learn how to make bouquets. Before they start taking a lesson, some students already got basic information from various websites or You Tube that offers free “know- how” regarding the way of making bouquets. However they are not yet 100% sure about how to make it. Once they experience to make several bouquets, some of them understand the secret and they earned basic skill to make bouquets. After repeatedly practicing, they can earn reasonable level of skills.
Like other types of floral arrangements, once they have earned a decent skill, they are able to clearly understand and digest what demonstrators are doing on You Tube or other information described in various websites. As I mentioned from time to time, it is so important for students to be patient until they acquire decent skills. They must recognize later that the skill they earned from their instructor is very valuable and priceless because they recognize they can make the best use of such skills for making a variety of designs . They can expand the portfolio of their floral designs by referring to “free information” from internet offering a wide range of information relating to the know how of floral decorations. It is obvious that such information provides you with valuable hints and suggestions which should be utilized by people who already earned decent skills at a floral school.
Getting back to bouquets sold at floral shops or internet sites, the prices of bouquets range from $40 to $90. It depends on the size, number of flowers used and also the type of flowers. It may be a good idea for you to buy one of them and send it to your girl friend as a Valentine’s gift to express how you love her. If you are female, you can give such floral gift to your parents. If you really like flowers and want to earn skills of making bouquets yourself, you can start taking lessons of flower arrangement right now. By the time of Valentine’s day, you become able to make your own bouquets for your parents.
If you are already engaged in flower designing or selling flowers as a floral shop owner, Valentine’s Day is one of the best opportunities to sell your flowers. In order to make a difference, you are recommended to offer a wide range of bouquets from affordable ones to expensive ones with a variety of flowers. Make the best use of Valentine’s day for you to show your love to your friend , parents or spouse by giving a floral gift also to expand the sales of your floral shop.
