What Does Your Valentine's Day Bouquet Really Mean?

What Does Your Valentine's Day Bouquet Really Mean?

Share
Valentine’s Day means candy, romantic dinners and, of course, flowers. I was astounded to find how many meanings there were for flowers beyond white rose means friendship and red rose means love. After learning these meanings, I realized that I could open a florist and use these floral meanings to create full on bouquets for any type of lover who came in. Here are my arrangements based on the flower meanings:

We should just be friends.
ROSE, LEAF: You may hope
ROSE, YELLOW: Joy, friendship
CARNATION, STRIPED: Refusal, No, sorry I can't be with you

I love you for your money.
ALSTROMERIA: Wealth, prosperity, fortune
APPLE BLOSSUMS: Good fortune
HOLLYHOCK: Ambition, fruitfulness
LILY: Majesty, wealth
ORANGE, MOCK: Deceit
POPPY, YELLOW: Wealth, success

I’m basically like 99% of the other guys out there.
LARKSPUR: Fickleness
NARCISSUS: Egotism, conceit, self love, self admiration
ORANGE, MOCK: Deceit
ROSE, CORAL: Desire
TULIP: Perfect lover (he gives this part of the bouquet to himself)
EREMURUS: Endurance (he’ll over compensate with this flower)

I’m stalking you (appropriately, this is the biggest bouquet—and the ugliest).
ASPARAGUS FERN: Fascination
BEGONIA: Beware
CAMELLIA, PINK: Longing for you
DAHLIA: Instability
EUPHORBIA: Persistence
GLOXINA: Love at first sight
HYACINTH, WHITE: Loveliness
HYACINTH, YELLOW: Jealousy
MARIGOLD, POT: Grief, despair
MONKSHOOD: Beware, a deadly foe is near, danger
OLEANDER: Caution
PRIMROSE: I can't live without you
RHODODENDRON: Danger, caution

I screwed up.
HYACINTH, PURPLE: I am sorry
SNAPDRAGON: Deception
BITTERSWEET: Truth
CAMELLIA, WHITE: You're adorable
GERANIUM: Stupidity

RETURN BOUQUET TO THIS ONE:
CARNATION, YELLOW: Disdain, rejection, you have disappointed me
CHRYSANTHEMUM, YELLOW: Slighted love

I’m secretly gay.
CARNATION, STRIPED: Refusal, No, sorry I can't be with you
LILY, YELLOW: I'm walking on air, false, gay
ORANGE, MOCK: Deceit

I’m not going to put out.
HYDRANGEA: Thank you for understanding, frigidity
IRIS, WHITE: Purity
ROSE, WHITE: Innocence, purity, secrecy
ACACIA: Concealed love, chaste love
ROSE, WHITE, DRIED: Death is preferable to loss of virtue

I have Oedipus Complex
CARNATION, PINK: A woman's love, I'll never forget you, mother's love
MOSS: Maternal love, charity

Boy, you crazy???
SPIDER FLOWER: Elope with me
