Flower arrangement may be defined as the art of organizing and grouping together plant materials to achieve harmony of form, color, and texture. They add cheer, beauty, life and happiness to the ambience.
In hotels, flowers are used extensively. Flower arrangements have an ability to introduce a personal touch in an otherwise staid and impersonal hotel room or lobby. Guests appreciate flowers for the freshness they bring to the surroundings.
This workshop helps Thakur Institute of Hotel Management (TIHM) students to be in touch with the modern floral trends followed in hotels and also to enhance their knowledge in the Housekeeping department with an intention to grow their career in specific interested departments.
Cultural fests give a lot of social benefits the biggest being inter-college interaction. Students get a chance to medley with people from different walks of life.
