Say it with Flowers

Say it with Flowers

For centuries people have been conveying messages of happiness, love and sorrow with flowers. What better way than saying what you struggle to say in person than with a bouquet of fresh cut flowers.

Don't you just love the moment when a beautiful bunch of flowers turns up on your doorstep from your local florist with a hand written message in an envelope. The actual gesture is enough to make you smile. But many flowers also carry their own meaning which can often be used to strengthen the message you wish to convey.

Here are just a few of the most popular flower associations:


Alstroemeria Devotion, Wealth, Prosperity, Fortune
Chrysanthemum Joy, Happiness, Long life
Gerbera Innocence
Roses (Rosa)Beautiful and sometimes fragrant Roses symbolize Love and Good fortune. Each colour carries it's own meaning too:
White Rose Truth / Purity
Yellow Rose Friendship
Pink Rose Perfect happiness
Red Rose Eternal love
Sweet Pea (Lathyrus) Departure, Delicate pleasures
