Still life photograph of very delicate flowers. The arrangement of flowers for home or building decor has a long history throughout the world. The oldest evidence of formal arranging of bouquets in vases comes from Egypt, and depictions of flower arrangements date back to 2500 BCE. In some cultures, ancient practices still survive today, for example in ikebana, the art of flower-arranging that comes from Japan. The oldest known book on flower-arranging is Japanese and dates from 1445. Simplicity and linear form are core features of ikebana, which has had a great influence on Western flower arranging since the late 19th century. In Europe, flower arranging as a formal art was first documented among the Dutch, who, in particular, painted wonderful informal arrangements of flowers. In the 18th century, arrangements were used to decorate the houses of the wealthy families and the aristocracy.
In appreciation for all her gentle care of the land, the fairies left a bouquet of tiny pink flowers on her doorstep.
