- Red, the most romantic symbolizes love and means “I love you”
- Regular Pink means “I’m happy with our relationship”
- Deep Pink says “thank you” when some one does something nice for you
- Light Pink symbolizes “sympathy”
- White symbolizes “innocence and purity”
- Yellow symbolizes “friendship and caring”
- Lavender symbolizes “falling in love”
Geez, folks, why must we put so much pressure associated with giving and receiving flowers?!! What happens if you aren’t aware of these meanings and you send the wrong message?! Yikes, dating seems so complex and a little unromantic to me!!
Do It Yourself
- For the heart shape, I bought a cardboard shaped heart box from Beverly’s
- 2 fresh flower floral foams from Beverly’s
- 1 can spray paint
- 1 plastic garbage bag
- paper or another bag to protect the surface while painting
Place your floral foam in water for about 15 minutes. The water will absorb lots of water and the foam will be heavy.
While your foam is soaking, paint your container. I painted the inside and outside of my heart box because I may reuse it, and I want it to be completely finished.
Be patient, and let the paint dry completely!
Once the container is completely dry, put your plastic inside the box leaving 1″ hang over.
Cut your foam to fit inside your container. The foam is soft, so you can push and squeeze it to fit perfectly. Nestle the plastic bag around the foam putting it inside the container.
Now you are ready for fun and creative part. Cut your flowers and gently push them into your foam creating the color combination of your choice, and find the perfect spot to display your arrangement. Isn’t it pretty?!
Now I’m wondering if the purple daisies have the same color symbolism as the rose family…if so, I just made a “falling in love, he loves me, and he loves me not” flower arrangement 😉
Plucking the delicate petals from the daisy flowers; chanting “he loves me and he loves me not” to discover the truth whether their beloved is true or not.
