The Art of Floral Bouquet Arrangement (Mothers’ Day Edition)
A nosegay is a small flower bouquet, typically given as a gift. They have existed in some form since at least medieval times, when they were carried or worn around the head or bodice.
The term nosegay arose in fifteenth-century Middle English as a combination of nose and gay (the latter then meaning “ornament”). So a nosegay was an ornament that appeals to the nose or nostril.
Participants will learn the meaning of flowers, what the colours represent, and what the numbers symbolise to aid them in the art of bouquet arrangement.
They will learn how to prepare the flowers to maximise the lifespan of the bouquet; they will learn to colour coordinate the flowers, as well as how to wrap the bouquet in different styles for different occasions (gifting, bridal, vase placement).
As shown in the picture, the bouquet can be hand-held to walk on the streets and can also be readily placed in a vessel for a table display.
