Have you sent flowers to your best friend lately? Have you sent a lovely bouquet to your leading lady recently? Everybody loves receiving flowers, but it feels just as good to give them. Imagine their face filling with delighted surprise when a lovely bouquet is delivered to their office desk, or when you come home and whisk out flowers from behind your back. Upgrade your floral gift from the classic but conventional choice of red roses to a bouquet with truly personal meaning. Learn the language of flowers to create a personalized bouquet with special meanings for your sweetie, best friends, and family.
1. “You are my dear, precious wife.”
Your wife is the most important person in your life and she deserves more than an easy bunch of red roses from Safeway. Take a few moments to think of what this woman means to you. Now, put in the effort to express all those ways she charms you with a special message just for her, using the language of flowers. Considering a bouquet with ivy (for fidelity), blue hyacinth (for constancy), myrtle (the classic symbol of marriage and love), veronica (for fidelity), peach flowers (to express that she is unparalleled in her charms and good qualities), justicia (because she is the perfect embodiment of female loveliness), stephanotis (to indicate your marital bliss), blue violets (for faithfulness), honeysuckle (to represent your ardent and generous affection), and ranunculus (to say that you are absolutely dazzled and stunned by her charisma). The next time you pick out a bouquet for her, take the time to include some of these meaningful flowers. She’ll love to hear you describe each floral meaning and be touched that you went the extra mile.
Honeysuckle for your honey.

Daisies, baby’s breath, white lilac represent innocence, so mix-and-match arrangements with touches of heather (for good luck), juniper berries (to give the baby protection), purple basil (for best wishes), white carnations (for endearment), primrose (to signify early youth), and lucern (for life).
