think about it, flowers are not the most useful of presents. Fresh ones would
sit around in your desk for days before being tossed out in the garbage, and
even dried blooms have a certain life span and don’t retain their vibrance for
more than two years. But hold up! Before you bare your fangs and attack, we
want to help make the case that bouquets are the most timeless and beautiful of
gifts, whatever the occasion is.
of flower-giving dates back to at least 4,000 years ago. Ancient Greek, Egyptian,
and Chinese civilizations were all found to have used flowers, not just for
decoration, but have also assigned symbolic meanings to them, making them thoughtful
offerings to lovers and gods. In fact, during the Victorian era in England,
many books were written about the “language of flowers,” and people would resort
to creating bouquets that convey emotions and feelings they won’t otherwise be
able to communicate out loud.
To date, many
people have continued to attach these same meaning to flowers, giving it a certain
level of significance. And history and meanings aside, don’t flowers have that
magical ability to lighten up every room and brighten every occasion?
