In either a local or online flower shop, one will see terminology like “flower bunch,” “flower bouquets,” etc., but few people are aware of the distinctions between them. The purpose of this article from Today Flowers is to explain the distinction between two different flower arrangements: a bouquet and a bunch.
A flower bunch is made up of randomly chosen flowers and lacks the specific symmetry of artistic arrangements, but a flower bouquet is a lovely and artistic arrangement of flowers by size, color, and diversity. In essence, a flower bunch is more rustic in style but a bouquet contains art and creativity.
Some florists assert that flower bunches and bouquets are essentially the same things. A bouquet is a more thoughtfully arranged collection of flowers that are frequently wrapped in paper and tied with a ribbon, whereas a bunch of flowers is merely a loose gathering of fresh flowers.
Bouquets typically contain a combination of flowers and foliage or fillers. Then, to ensure that the flower bouquets look beautiful, certain color schemes and inventive designs are used to structure them. No foliage or fillers are present in a bunch. Additionally, a bunch doesn’t adhere to any color harmony.
Between bunches and bouquets, there are other structural distinctions. The stems are all the same length and the flower heads or buds are all at the same level in a bouquet of flowers. Bouquets also remove the leaves and thorns. Such structural configurations are absent from the flower bunches.
A “spiraling” appearance is produced by the arrangement of the flower stems in a bouquet of flowers. By doing this, a bouquet takes on a dome shape that allows it to be exquisitely displayed in a vase. The flower stems are simply collected and wrapped into bunches without regard for aesthetics.
