Language of Flowers
In Victorian times, flowers were used for more than just beautiful, fragrant gifts. They represented an entire language and were used to send secret messages of love, happiness, and even betrayal in a silent manner. Friends, lovers, and families alike used this language of flowers to create personalized flower gifts.
In fact, this old tradition of flower language may have been the start to the practice of gifting flower bouquets to your loved ones. It has surely spread across the globe as a universal token of affection, although many flower givers today don’t know the original meaning given to flowers by the Victorian users.
