A bouquet as a form of flower arrangement came to Europe in the 14th century when people started putting flowers into a vase. The first rules of flower arrangement became known in France four hundred years ago. At that time bouquets wrapped in laces with an abundant use of fragrances came in fashion.
According to Hindu belief, flowers came on earth to serve as a gift for the people we love. The color and type of flowers usually depend on who your recipient is. If you are giving flowers to someone you know well, you?d better select this person's favorite flowers. A bouquet made of large flowers of the same color with long stems is a good gift for a man. A bouquet for a young girl should be made of buds in tender and creamy colors. A woman would like an elegant arrangement decorated with greens. A pot flower may be a gift for your mother. A small basket with bright flowers can be given to a child.
When selecting a bouquet, remember that flowers have a language of their own. A bouquet of pink roses means ?please, believe me?. A tea rose or a pink carnation will help you say ?I?ll always remember?. White roses, lilies or carnations are a symbol of innocence and purity, while a yellow rose stands for jealousy. A red tulip or a red carnation is a declaration of love. Yellow tulips say ?There is a sunshine in your smile?, but a yellow carnation means a rejection. White carnations will make a good luck gift for a woman. Be careful with orange lilies - they symbolize hatred.
