When we are sad, cheerful or proud, there's a flower to match our mood, lifting our spirits and consoling us in turn. Floriography, or the language of flowers, matches each stem with an emotion, so we can use them to describe how we feel. With the following flowers you never have to explain how you feel, because their symbolism speaks volumes.
1. Bouvardia for enthusiasm
For friends who are always in high spirits, bouvardia is the perfect gift. The pointed flowers look like small trumpets, which announce their presence joyfully to the world.

Get a few twigs in the house, put themin the water and let the orchestra do its thing.
2. Dahlia for love
Love has many interpretations in the world of flowers. Peonies and roses are the undisputed kings of love and romance. The dahlia is special, however, as it symbolises "yours forever". It's a special moment when you give away your heart forever. Celebrate with a large bouquet of dahlias.
