Flowers.. What Do They Mean Anyway?? by bchhuor on Polyvore
Dear Loves..
It’s been a while since I last posted!! I was on a streak.. posting everyday and then I crashed haha.. But no fear I’m back!! Not sure who is really looking at my blogs but whoever you are.. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SHOWING A BIT OF A SLIGHT INTEREST 🙂 
So anyways.. today’s inspiration comes from the one thing that makes me super oober happy in life and thats.. FLOWERS! There’s something about flowers that just brightens my day.. not matter what type of flower it may be or what the occasion is/was.. when my eyes have wondered over to the blossoms of flowers.. I’m instantly happy like instant coffee.. haha.. that was lame.. 🙂
This weekend I finally got the chance to check out the Los Angeles Flower Market which is the most popular flower distribution in the area. I swear.. I was like a fat kid in all kinds of candy shop.. like Willy Wonka without the candies. It was like Costco on crack with just flowers on top of flowers. I can’t express to you how happy I was the minute I set foot in there. The only down fall is the waking up part. I guess you have to go as early as possible since the popular flowers sell out fast and they close by 12 pm. But trust me.. if you appreciate flowers the way I do then waking up at the butt crack of dawn is well worth it.
As I was walking around this wonderful warehouse with one of my girlfriends, I started to wonder.. there are so many different kinds of flowers how do florists remember their names. Then I came across a florist who was explaining to a buyer what the flowers she was purchasing meant. So then I started thinking.. what do certain flowers mean.. and that’s where this inspiration came from. Each of these beauties not only come from a common family but all have meaning to them. Some, like the rose family, are color coordinated.. how cool is that? Then I started doing some research on my own to really figure out what some of the flowers that I adore mean. (all my research on flowers are courtesy of aboutflowers.com)
Lately I’ve been obsessed with Peonies… like madly obsessed with them. To me, they have this sweet, simple elegance to the them and their puffiness along with their scents adds character as well. Along with the Peonies, I absolutely love Calla Lillie’s, Billy Balls, Gingers, Orchids, and so much more.. its too long to list..haha. Here are a few of favorites used as centerpieces and bouquets and what they really mean.
