Symbolism with flowers

Most of us have given flowers to someone or have received them on occasion. After all, the act of giving and receiving flowers in a deep tradition. In the early days plants where given for their medicinal and herbal properties. These days we mostly give choose flowers for their visual appeal and a fantastic smell. These days you would be hard pressed to find someone who does not have a favourite flower, and some of us can become very passionate about what we like. After all flowers are full of symbolism.

One of the biggest flower giving occasions is Valentine ’s Day. Traditionally red roses were associated with this holiday, after all the Greeks associated the rose with the goddess of love Aphrodite. But while browsing Interflora Valentines Flowers it is easy to see that roses are not your only option on this romantic holiday. Various variations of flowers, beautifully presented with a personal touch can be as beautiful and as unique as your sweetheart.

Today many people like to give very vibrant flowers that can give a statement. These are very popular in weddings. Arrangements that include sunflowers or lilies are not only beautiful, but they are also a great way to standout from the crowd.

Interflora Flowers bouquets demonstrate that our fascination with flowers is as strong now as it has been in the past. As a society we do use flowers to express our emotions and convey messages. Whether that is the message of love, message of congratulations or sympathy, or (my favourite) just thinking of you, flowers are the go between of what is in our hearts for the recipient. With the right presentation and a few personal touches, even the smallest bouquet, or even just a single flower, can speak more volumes than any words, ever could.
