9 different ways to beautifully wrap flowers like a florist

Traditional Bouquet Wrapping


Traditional bouquets are wrapped in the classic way, using ribbon and cellophane. Start by picking out a selection of different flowers, including a few larger blooms and some greenery to fill in any gaps. Arrange the flowers into a neat circle, with the larger blooms in the center and the smaller ones around the edges.
To make sure the flowers stay in place, you can use floral tape or a special type of wax that is designed for floral arrangements. Once you’ve secured the flowers, wrap them in cellophane, making sure that you leave some room for air to circulate. Next, tie a ribbon around the bouquet, either in a bow or a simple knot. Finally, cut off any excess ribbon and cellophane, and your bouquet is ready for display!

Hand-Tied Bouquet


A hand-tied bouquet is an elegant way to present flowers to your loved one. To make one of these, gather a selection of flowers in varying sizes and colors, as well as greenery, ferns, and other decorative bits. Make sure everything is trimmed to the same size before you start arranging. Once you’ve got your materials sorted, lay them out on a flat surface and begin arranging them in a circular pattern, making sure to include a few smaller blooms in the center.

 Once the arrangement is complete, tie it up with a piece of ribbon, ensuring that the ribbon is tied tight enough to keep the bouquet in place. You can then add a decorative bow to the ribbon for a lovely finish. 

Cascade/Waterfall Bouquet


A cascade or waterfall bouquet consists of elongated flowers that look like they are cascading down from the top of the bouquet. To make one of these stunning arrangements, start by selecting a few larger flowers, such as roses or lilies, that will form the base of the bouquet. Next, add a few smaller blooms, followed by some ferns and greenery.

 Arrange all of the flowers in such a way so that they fall down from the top of the bouquet like a waterfall. Once everything is arranged to your liking, secure the bouquet with floral tape. Then, pick up the bouquet in your hands with the flowers facing downwards, and wrap it in cellophane. Next, tie a ribbon around it and make a nice bow in the front. Your cascade bouquet is now ready to go! 

Presentation Bouquet


A presentation bouquet is designed to sit upright, making it one of the easier bouquet designs to assemble. Start by selecting some relatively heavy-headed blooms, such as roses, daisies, and peonies, as well as some greenery, such as ferns, ivy, and eucalyptus. Arrange these into a neat circle, making sure to leave enough room for air to circulate. Secure the arrangement with floral tape and then wrap the bouquet in tissue paper. Tie a ribbon around the bottom of the bouquet and then attach it to a flat balloon weight or a block of floral foam. This will ensure that the bouquet stands up straight even when in the recipient’s arms. Finally, your presentation bouquet is ready for delivery! 

Fan Bouquet


Fan bouquets are made up of large blooms arranged to create a fan-like shape. Start by selecting a few large flowers such as roses or lilies, as well as some smaller blooms and greenery. Arrange the flowers in a circle, with the larger blooms on the outside and the smaller ones in the middle. Once the flowers are arranged to your liking, secure them with floral tape and wrap the bouquet in tissue paper. To make the fan shape, fold the bouquet in half and hold the edges together with one hand. With the other, begin to carefully fluff out the petals, making sure to keep the bouquet as symmetrical as possible. Once the desired fan shape is achieved, tie the bouquet with a ribbon and add a decorative bow. 

Arm Bouquet


An arm bouquet is specially designed to be held comfortably in the crook of the arm. To make one of these, start by picking out a selection of flowers in varying colors and sizes. Cut the stems to about 6 inches and arrange the blooms in a circle, making sure that the larger blooms are in the center and the smaller ones are on the outside.

Next, tie a bow in the ribbon and attach it to the wrist portion of the bouquet. Make sure the ribbon is tight enough to keep the bouquet in place while in the arm. Finally, attach a flat balloon weight or some floral foam to the back of the bouquet to ensure that it sits comfortably in the arm.

Biedermeier Bouquet


Biedermeier bouquets are simple yet beautiful, and perfect for those who prefer a more minimalistic style. Start by selecting a few small blooms, such as dahlias, roses, and tulips, as well as some greenery and foliage. Arrange the flowers in a dome-shape with the larger blooms on the outside and the smaller ones in the middle.
