Flower Meanings: What Message Are You Sending?

Flower Meanings: What Message Are You Sending?

Since Victorian times, beautiful flower arrangements have been used to convey messages or feelings. As a matter of fact, it is believed that it was during this period when the notion of the language of flowers has been conceived. Sending specific flowers was like suitors wooing and speaking to young maidens through secret codes. Over the years, the collection of flower meanings have evolved and expanded. They can be captivating, confusing, and even contradicting all at the same time. 

These days where heart-warming messages are either left unsaid or carelessly sent through text or chat messages, making it a habit to buy orchid gifts or send flower arrangements would definitely make a whole world of difference as to how we celebrate or simply share life’s special moments. Find out how to always send the right message and hit the sweet spot for every occasion or situation using these different flower arrangement categories. 

I Love You Flowers

Te Amo

There are actually two types of I Love You Flowers. There’s the romantic type for when you are confessing your love for the first time, professing it again for your anniversary, or asking his/her hand in marriage through an engagement surprise. This one calls for roses, peonies, tulips in bold and passionate colors, such as red or magenta. 

The second one is the affection type of I Love You Flowers, which frequently could be for the female team of your family, such as your mom, sister, or daughter. When selecting options for flower delivery, go for blooms in soft, pale pinks.
