Bella Blooms

Susan found this great article on the Symbolic Meaning of Wedding Flowers on Real Simple's website and I just had to use it for a Bella Bloom post.

Some of my favorite flowers and their meanings:

Peony - Happiness and Prosperity
Orchid - Love and Beauty
Lilac - First Love
Tulip - True Love
Anemone - Abandonment, Forsakenness, Sincerity, Fragility
Rose (red) - Love and Desire
Rose (white) - Purity and Innocence

What about my favorite of all Hydrangea?? Have to do some more digging on that one!
I even loved their suggestion of giving each bridesmaid a bouquet featuring a signature flower that suits their individual personality...Check out the entire article on Real Simple's Website.

Here are some beautiful flower pics to help you get through the week....

Beautiful bouquets designed by Carissa of JL Designs, using Balsa Wood Flowers, love how she uses different textures and flowers with each event.

Happy Planning!
