Hi there all of you Garden of Eden Flower Shop (and chocolates and gifts) fans! We’d like to welcome you all to our new Feature Flower Friday! Each week, we will be feature a different type of flower, the meaning behind them and the reasons you would give or present them to someone else. Join us this week, as we cover the lilac! The lilac flower is a beautiful flower that generally accompanies the onset of spring. These flowers are some of the first ones to bloom as the weather gets warmer, so be prepared to start seeing lilacs all around, if you have not already. However, despite their early arrival in the season, the lilac carries with it an impressive cadre of symbolism that is sure to fit many occasions. As stated above, the lilac symbolizes spring and all of the joyous emotions that comes with it. In addition to this, the specific color of the lilac can carry a different meaning for the flower. For example, a white lilac gives of a innocence that is associated with childhood, whereas a pink one stands for strong friendship.s A light lilac means a first love (perfect for prom corsages) and a blue one stands for happiness and tranquility. Lilacs have many meanings attached to them, but each shade looks just as beautiful as the next, no matter what context you are planning to give them. For whatever reason you need some lilacs in your life, know that the Garden of Eden Flower Shop is here to help. Just pop on in to any one of our multiple locations in the South Jersey region and see what we can do for you! Have a great weekend!
