The Meaning Behind Flowers

Giving flowers to someone you care about has been the staple tradition since time immemorial. So have you ever wondered what the meanings behind flowers are? Surely, giving someone an anemone has a completely different meaning from giving someone a Bouvardia. This article will give you a glimpse as to what those flowers mean so you can be sure that you’re actually exuding the right meaning. Never again will you go to a funeral only to give a daffodil which actually means “you’re the only one”.

The colourful blossom can have petals as long as 6 inches and the stems can reach up to 3 feet. This flower is pretty tough and can withstand harsh weathers – even winter! If you ever wish someone dear joy and utmost prosperity, the Tiger Lily will do the job just right.

Daffodil

One of the more well-known flowers, the Daffodil is famous for its bright yellow color and a petal pattern the spreads out like the sun. The Daffodil is a sign of spring and warmer weather and usually represents romantic and chivalrous gestures. Give this to your significant other and tell him or her “you’re the only one” without uttering a single word. Let the Daffodil’s magic ignite those romantic sparks once more!

Bouvardia

The Bouvardia is found in many places ranging from Mexico (the flowers hometown) to the United Kingdom. The Bouvardia’s petals sit on top of a long stem and has a lot of color variations from dainty pink to pure white, to lively orange. The refreshing blossoms represents fervor, eagerness, and passion and is the perfect gift to someone who’s striving to reach a goal.

Anemone

If your significant other is having a stressful work week, give her an anemone and romantically tell her to calm down. According to Greek and Roman mythology, the Anemone itself came from Adonis the god of beauty and desire. The Anemone’s bright, yet soothing hues of purple and white will surely calm those frantic nerves.

Now You Know!

The meaning behind flowers are often overlooked, but one should really take these nuances into consideration especially if an important event is coming up. Just remember that a flower is a beautiful picture and it paints a thousand words too.

Understanding Why Men Should Give Flowers

Flowers have been widely used as a present when courting or expressing romantic feelings. It is such a sweet gesture that now in the modern times the real meaning of it has been sometimes neglected. In the olden times, courting was regarded as a formal and dignified act and flowers were symbols used to express emotions that cannot be simply uttered in words.

Understanding Why Men Should Give Flower

Meanings were associated in the giving and receiving of flowers, so a romantic language developed in the Victorian Era. Each bouquet was deemed to have a secret message for the women to interpret. Enlivening this Victorian tradition in today’s era will pour in so much meaning–magic, life, and mystery–in this romantic gesture.

Saying it at the right moment

When anxiety and tension is eating you up and you find it hard to have the right words to say, then maybe this short list of flowers and their meanings can help you.

Carnation – Fascination

Chrysanthemum – Wonderful friend

Daisy – Loyal love

Gladioli – Sincerity

Orchid – Love and beauty

Pink rose – Secret love

Tulip – Declaration of love

White rose – Innocence and purity

Yellow & orange rose – Passionate thoughts

Now that you have the right flower for your sentiments, you can be more confident and get major romance points when you know the timing to bring or send flowers. Be thoughtful enough to remember your significant other in special and important occasions. A number of these events to keep in mind are Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, new baby, ‘Get Well’ wishes, saying sorry, anniversary, or just a simple day to surprise her.

A Victorian gentleman in the modern world

Don’t question why giving flowers is important because the answer is as simple as women like receiving flowers. Although you may know someone exempted to this rule, generally, this has been the set expectation of woman from her beloved. While men think that flowers are expensive and temporary as they die and cannot be consumed or used when alive, its meaning is beyond being just a material gift. So, what is it for you, gentleman?

You become a happy man. According to a research of Rutgers University psychologist Jeanette Haviland-Jones, the act of giving beckons a real smile. And with this smile emanates a positive reaction from you as the giver. Don’t you agree that seeing a smile from your beloved is priceless?

You become the smarter guy. Sending flowers to you sweetheart’s office or home signifies that you have higher emotional intelligence than other guys. A giveaway for you is when her co-workers are impressed, you might just get a quick access on their network of contacts when you need it.

You become a better manager. Not every flower sent out means ‘I love you’. Boost up your staff’s morale by sending a vase or basket of flowers to their work station. You’ll see a good change in productivity and less trace of anxiety on their faces. It’s as good as saying, “Let’s finish this project on time or we’ll be both dead meat.”
