Floriography 101: Gratitude.

Floriography is defined as ‘The language of flowers’ and dates back thousands of years.  It was during Victorian times that people really started to appreciate the meaning of flowers and the emotion and symbolism behind them. During this time, floriography was serious business. It was poet Lady Mary Wortley Montagu who began the fascination with floriography amongst the aristocracy. It then filtered down in the decades that followed to arts, design and literature. It was used by famous artists like Charlotte Bronte in their novels. Floriography was so popular, that books and dictionaries were written to show the meaning behind each flower. The type of flower you choose can allow you to ‘speak’ using flowers, in a way that no other gift can.
