With the help of a jigsaw, you can cut almost anything, be it plywood, chipboard, aluminum or even steel. Like any tool, depending on the purpose, the jigsaw is divided into household and professional. Each of them has its own power indicators and a certain functional set. Basically, household appliances are designed for cutting metal up to 4 mm thick, and wood up to 70 mm thick. Professionals can handle up to 10 mm of hard metal and up to 135 mm of wood.

An edible bouquet is today considered an original gift for any occasion, including a man's. Despite the fact that many florists have already mastered a new direction and offer a product to customers, it is possible to make such an original gift with your own hand.

What is food floristry?

Food floristry is the preparation of floristic compositions and bouquets of fruits, berries, vegetables and other edible ingredients. The history of the emergence of this special direction of art sends back to England in the 19th century. It was then that journalist George Sala described in his article a London housekeeper collecting exquisite bouquets of vegetables and fruits. By the beginning of the 20th century, edible compositions spread throughout the world.

For food bouquets, only the freshest products are used, and perishable products are additionally packed in cling film. Alternately, they are strung on bamboo sticks or toothpicks, after which they are decorated with greenery and combined with adhesive tape into a single composition.

The finished work is usually gift wrapped so that all unsightly parts are hidden.

A wicker basket, flower pot or wooden box can be analogs of a paper roll.

Overview of types of bouquets

According to their composition, all edible bouquets are usually divided into several groups. The first includes compositions of fresh flowers and ripe fruits, as well as sweets such as French cookies, marshmallows or candies in shiny wrappers.

The second group unites bouquets created only from fruits and berries: both seasonal and exotic.

The advantage of this variety is its versatility: after admiring the aesthetic appearance, the product can be completely eaten.

Compositions from the third group are obtained by combining vegetables, fresh herbs and mushrooms.

Finally, all the remaining edible products can be attributed to the fourth variety: from meat products, dried fish, crayfish, dried fruits, cheeses and other non-standard ingredients.
