The Importance of Foliage and Decorations in a Flower Bouquet
As a florist, you know better than anyone that the subtle and technical art of bouquet design is not only about combining the right flowers, but also about showcasing their beauty. That’s why it’s important to carefully select foliage and decorative elements. Just like the choice of flowers, these elements will define the shape and style of the bouquet, add texture, and bring in color. Together, all these details will create a structured, balanced, and harmonious composition. Ready to present!
Kraft Cuffs as an Eco-Friendly Alternative to Foliage
Pittosporum, olive, pistachio, chico, or chamaerops… Foliage offers a multitude of possibilities whether you want to create a tall arrangement or a round bouquet. But they can be expensive. “Almost as expensive as the flowers,” explains one of our talented florists, who came up with the idea of repurposing kraft cuffs, usually used to dress up flower pots, as decorative elements.
It’s worth noting that Clayrton’s has recently introduced a unique type of kraft cuffs, which earned them the Innovation Award in September 2022. Made from water-resistant kraft paper with a thickness of 60 gsm, these cuffs are now 100% biodegradable, offering an eco-friendly, cost-effective, and aesthetically pleasing solution with their pleated appearance. “It’s a natural, original, and decorative material that also lasts over time. Imagine such a bouquet with preserved flowers!” rejoices the creator. Discover Clayrton’s range of kraft cuffs.
