Let’s take a mini-break from the Holland Posts and talk about the wedding that took place in England this past Friday, you know the one!
So, dear flower friends, what did you think of Kate’s Bouquet?
My initial reaction was – Oh, that’s small.
Once I saw the closeup photograph of the bouquet I did admire it more. I appreciate the designer that wired all those blossoms together, lucky them!
I definitely appreciate that each flower had a special meaning:
Sweet William (dianthus) – pure and deep love (and it’s name is William, how sweet!)
lily of the valley – return of happiness
hyacinth – constancy of love
ivy – fidelity
myrtle – perpetual love. It’s tradition for the bouquets to have a sprig from Queen Victoria’s myrtle plant.
So, what did you think?
Also, how much do you think it would cost?
