Flower arrangement and design is considered an art. When before one would only pick flowers in the garden and put them in a vase is enough,
now, it is of utmost importance that the flower arranger understands the occasion, the theme, the color motif, and the preferences of the client before coming up with a flower design.
As flowers come in different colors and varieties, combining them is a difficult task if one is not creative and imaginative enough to think of flower designs.
