Hand-Tied Bouquets

Hand-tied bouquets are popular - thank you gifts/
birthdays/and for many other reasons

either choose same type or combinations of variety of different flowers with  foliages  set around the edges. This type of bouquet is arranged by holding the flowers and foliage stems in one hand and adding other stems around in spirals, criss crossing the stems at the one point and binding them in position.
You need to choose flowers with fairly long stem
eg. roses, carnations, stargazer lilies
and foliages such as eucalyptus,
