October 9, 2009, Newsletter Issue #274: The Language of Flowers Speaks Volumes

Tip of the Week

Romantic traditions from the past can teach us a lot about romance in the present. According to the The Literary Times, the language of flowers is called floriography and was practiced from the time of the Romans. During the time of the Victorians, lovers would tell each other how they felt by exchanging certain flowers or floral arrangements. This was quite a booming business for the florists, silversmiths and glassmakers of the day.

Make the gift of flowers even more romantic and fun by using the traditional floral language but better yet, make up your own language. Giving a dozen roses is lovely, but why not choose 12 individual flowers and write a description or meaning for each. Include a card that spells out the message you want to convey.

Here are a few ideas to get you started: Your eyes are the color of this blue hydrangea. The white rose is my commitment and a sign of things to come. The gardenia reminds me of your perfume. The sunflower reminds me of the summer day we met. Your own floral language can be fun and creative. This shows the recipient that a great deal of thought went into the gift. Any type of personalization goes a long way in the area of romance.

Ladies, donít let the guys have all the fun, men love receiving flowers too. Choose just one flower and have it delivered to him personally with your private message. Romance doesnít have to be boring.
