          When the hostess prepares for a dinner party, they do not think about dinner party gift etiquette. Because they try to prepare and present beautiful food, set the table, clean the house, and so on. And when you bring flowers for the hostess, the hostess may not immediately accept them. It's because they need to find a vase and pour water into it. So, to make this task more accessible for the hostess, give flowers in a vase. Or choose compositions that are easy to care for, for example, alstroemeria.

          3. Symbolism of the Chosen Bouquet of Flowers
