The Language of Love: Choosing Valentine’s Day Flowers

The Language of Love: Choosing Valentine’s Day Flowers

On Valentine’s Day, sending flowers to your special someone might feel like a pretty standard thing to do, but it’s actually an opportunity to send a message that goes far beyond a charming bouquet. The language of flowers, sometimes called floriography, is a way to communicate through the giving of flowers. Meaning has been attributed to flowers for thousands of years, and some form of floriography is practiced in most cultures throughout the World. In the Victorian era, floral arrangements were used to send a coded message to the recipient, allowing the sender to express feelings which could not be spoken aloud in proper society. Using traditional American and European floriography, we’ve gathered a few of our favorite Valentine’s Day arrangements along with the love-themed messages that each bouquet’s flowers send. Red Roses: “Ours is a classic love story.” The red roses in the Enduring Love Bouquet are hand-selected for their color, size, freshness and beauty. Artfully poised in a classic clear vase, it’s an enchanting and timeless gift of love for Valentine’s Day.                   Pale Pink Roses: “You bring me joy!”  Our florists combine one dozen 40 cm pink roses in a contemporary vase with luscious tufts of Queen Anne’s lace to create the Pink Dozen Roses and Lace – a bouquet of soft contrast and color.                   Roses in Mixed Colors: “I’m thankful for you.” Made with lush, blooming roses, this beautiful bouquet is as pretty as a picture and fragrant, too. Presented in springtime hues of pink, yellow, and white, the Garden of Roses bouquet is a winning choice for a spring...
