Stuck at home?
Wondering what to send for Valentine’s Day this year? If your relationship has survived all of the lockdowns over 2020 and into 2021, congratulations, it’s true love! Better send something floral to that wonderful person that has put up with you at home all day every day, for weeks and weeks and weeks……..
Now, what to send??
Is is true for many that the red rose is a traditional flower to give on the 14th of February as it has always been seen as a symbol of true love..
Mythology says that the red rose was born from the tears of Aphrodite and the Blood of Adonis who were lovers. Pink roses were for love, caring and friendship, white roses peace and purity but many other flowers had their place in the secret language of flowers!
Nosegay posies would be gathered and gifted with each flower shining it’s intent to the receiver. Violets are faithful, Lily of the Valley is happiness, Daisies for true love.
Small wild flower bouquets had as much meaning as the dozen red roses they were just more subtle about it!!
Today though, red roses are still very popular, maybe the classic twelve on their own or perhaps a single rose nestled amongst other flowers in a stunning bouquet.. but that more subtle tradition of the wild flower bouquet has become ever more in demand.
A modern interpretation would be mixed country cottage garden styled blooms in a more rustic style bouquet.
Our Fumbally bouquet gives you an idea of this style that seems to be the modern yet very traditional way of saying I Love You……
