As one of the most ancient heritages present in the world, floral arrangements of African Heritage dates back as far as an Asian or Egyptian heritages. The floral arrangements of African heritage are also known as Kwanzaa free flowing style of floral arrangement.

This type of arrangement uses free and wild look. It makes use of palm leaves and rubber foliage. These are large plants and give a large and lean look to the arrangements. It also uses other green foliage lavishly. The reason behind this can be attributed to the natural flora available in the African land.

Floral arrangements of African heritage find their place mostly during the Kwanzaa holiday ing celebrated by African Americans. A tropical theme using flowers such as birds-of-paradise and heliconia with large blooms is created. The overall set up uses containers, foliages, flowers etc for celebrating the festival which literally means first fruit. The whole ambience is complimented by African folklore in the background.

No matter what or where the Africans have migrated, they have carried their culture and traditions. Thus as long as the culture is opted by the migrants everything including the floral arrangements of African heritage shall keep venturing to the far away lands
