A key part of floristry that usually flies under the radar is the subtle but technical art of bouquet wrapping. If done correctly, bouquet wrapping can help enhance the beauty and presence of the flowers it encompasses. It can help frame the arrangement and take it to a new level of extravagance. Putting effort into the wrapping of your bouquet can help elevate your floristry from that of a simple supermarket or roadside stall.
Techniques that are gaining notoriety in many countries around the world have evolved from countries like Japan and South Korea where the skill of presentation and wrapping is extremely important to the end consumer. As the market becomes increasingly competitive, taking the time to put effort and flare into your floral presentation can add that extra element which can help you stand out from the competition.
In this short guide, we show three simple wrapping designs that you can experiment with on your future arrangements. These step-by-step videos can guide you as you explore new ways to wrap and arrange your floral creations.
