The practice of making bouquets is very old. The earliest records of such come from ancient Egypt, over 4,000 years ago.
In Victorian England, floral bouquets were used as a way to send messages. Each flower had a meaning, as did its color and the way it was arranged.
"Flower dictionaries" were written to help people understand the messages they received and to send the correct messages to others.

Today, bouquets may be used as adornment or given as gifts on special occasions, such as at weddings, dances, anniversaries, Valentine's Day, or dates, as well as to cheer the sick or at funerals.
While most people don't associate flowers with a secret message, this gift is often understood to express love or sympathy.

Step by Step Instructions for Drawing a Flower Bouquet
Flower Bouquet Drawing - Step 1
1. Begin by drawing your first flower. Draw a circle to form the center of the flower. Then, enclose rounded shapes around the center using "U" shaped lines. These are the flower's petals.

4. Next, you will draw a different type of flower - the tulip. From behind one of the first flowers, extend a pair of straight, parallel lines to form the stem. At the end of the lines, draw a large "U" shaped line. This forms the bottom of the flower. Next, use a series of curved lines in the shape of a "W" to connect the ends of the "U," enclosing the blossom. Repeat this process on the opposite side of the bouquet to draw another tulip.

6. Next, sketch the greenery or leaves of the bouquet. For each leaf, use two curved lines that meet in a point on the end. Allow the leaves to connect at the bottom, filling in the spaces between the flowers.

8. Fill in your bouquet with more small flowers. Draw two parallel lines for the stem, and a circle for the flower's center. Then, extend a curved line to enclose the petals. Notice the wavy pattern on the end of each petal. Repeat until your bouquet is as full of flowers as you wish.

9. Draw the stems of the bouquet. Extend a pair of lines downward, angling towards one another. Connect the lines by enclosing a flattened, irregular shape. This will form the ribbon tied around the bouquet. Extend another set of lines from the ribbon, and connect these lines with a series of jagged, connected, curved lines.
Enclose teardrop shapes to form the ribbon's bow, and pairs of lines that end with a "V" shaped line to form the ribbon's cut ends. Detail the stems and ribbon with curved lines
