Did you know the difference between a bunch and a bouquet is simply the construction method?
A bunch is just that, flowers 'bunched' together.
Flower buds/heads are all at one level, stems all the same length (Second image shown). If you're lucky the stems will be cleaned of foliage and thorns.
A bouquet is constructed in the hand. Some florists begins with a foliage 'base' then flowers are threaded into position.
The bouquet is continually turned and the stems are always placed at the same angle creating a 'spiralling' look.
This makes the bouquet form a dome shape so it can be displayed beautifully in a vase ( First image shown).
A fantastic florist can make a bouquet that can balance on it's spiralled stems.
A bunch will usually cost you less as there is less 'labour' and 'skill' involved in its construction. The third image shows a 'bunch' gift wrapped.
Gift wrapped bunches of seasonal flowers from my online shop are from $30, with FREE delivery to Cheltenham and surrounding suburbs.
Other Melbourne suburbs incur a delivery fee.
Oh, and I can't help myself. Stems are cleaned, flowers that need supporting are wired and I spiral the stems.
