Guide to PetVille's NEW! virtual ikebana (a.k.a. Flower Arranging feature)
But the new system is much more nuanced than that. Sure, flowers have now become another commodity to chase in-game, but being allowed to craft your own bouquets by dragging one's mouse around is such a nice touch, it's almost a game of its own! As a matter of fact, in Japan, flower arrangement is called ikebana, and considered a serious art discipline.

...and so on.
Once your bouquet is ready, you won't be able to change it for 2 days, so you should spend time getting even more flowers for next time. There's two ways to do this: 1) Click on your flower vase and select "Ask For Flowers" to post a notice on your Facebook Wall, or 2) Have your friends regularly gift you some through the gifts page.
The disappointing thing about the gifts feature is that you only get 3 flowers per gifting. (But frankly, I only got 1 flower, cause you can't have a new feature without some new glitches, am I right?). Seeing how friends are limited to one gifting per day, and that the 15 flowers the game started me off with wasn't enough to satisfactorily decorate more than 3 pots, I think PetVille should consider making the flower gifting portions larger.
