Why give flowers only on Valentine's Day? Flowers have always been known to be a popular way to show appreciation, express love, miss a loved one, or apologize to someone you hold dear.
Bringing Flowers to Someone Day is just another reason to give some of your loved and cherished flowers. Bring Flowers to Someone Day explores the history of flower giving, what flowers mean, and encourages people to buy a bouquet for any reason.
History of Bring Flowers to Someone Day
Flowers have always a special meaning; however, what is its origin? In ancient Greece, Rome, and China, giving someone flowers was a way to convey information about flowers, also known as the language of flowers.
During this period, flowers are useful in conveying a lot of stories about the gods, which detailed the meaning and importance. This didn't quite exist during the Middle Ages, as it was not until the mid-1700s that the French and English discovered how flowers were used as a language of communication, particularly in the country of Turkey.
The Victorian era then brought the language of flowers to the fore, expanding in detail, color, shape and placement compared to other flowers. Many books have been made to present the meanings of flowers, but since they are written by many authors, the meaning is often subject to interpretation.
However, Bring Flowers to Someone Day is about giving someone flowers for whatever reason. Whether it's to rekindle an old spark, apologize for something you've done, or celebrate a life event like a graduation or anniversaries, giving flowers can be a great way to express your feelings and send messages to those you care about.
All flowers have their own meaning and depending on how you choose, you can convey anything you want. On Bring Flowers to Someone Day, people take the time to buy flowers at a local florist or send bouquets by buying them online.
Celebrating Bring Flowers to Someone Day
Research the meaning of your favorite flower. Look up what flower their colors represent and the history of that flower over time. If you are interested in the language of flowers, buy a Victorian flower book to learn more about the language.
If you have someone in mind, send them their own bouquet to show your appreciation for them. If you don't have one in mind, buy a bouquet for yourself to bring life to your home and take care of yourself. You can also share Bring Flowers to Someone Day on social media and let everyone know that this day is the perfect excuse to send someone flowers!
