The Language of Flowers

By / Uncategorized

As Saint Valentine’s Day is less than a month away, it is a good time to start thinking about sending flowers. An eternal symbol of affection, throughout history flowers have always held specific meanings based on the given type. The “Language of Flowers” came about in the Victorian Era, when men and women were not allowed to show open displays of emotion. Suitors used this code to send messages which were based on the types of flower used in a bouquet. This type of communication is fortunately a thing of the past, but a few ideals still remain. Such as: red-roses-photo

Even though it is a lost art, The Language of Flowers is a beautiful way to show affection, love, desire and friendship in the most beautiful and subtle of ways. Be sure to contact a favorite florist, such as The Mandarin Flower Company, in time for Valentine’s Day!
