Hi there all of you Garden of Eden Flower Shop (and chocolates and gifts) fans! We’d like to welcome you all to our latest Feature Flower Friday! Each week, we will be featuring a different type of flower, the meaning behind them and the reasons you would give or present them to someone This week, we’re talking about the Orchid. Enjoy! Orchids are one of the most highly coveted ornamental flowers, with a wide range of symbolism attached to them. Traditionally, orchids symbolize love, beauty, luxury, and strength, and in some instances, they can send a message of exotic seduction. In addition, orchids can also be associated with virility, as they were in Ancient Greece. The Greeks believed that if the father of the unborn child ate copious amounts of large orchid tubes, the child would come out a boy. On the other hand, if the mother ate small orchid tubes, the baby would be a girl. While modern science has basically disproved this theory, the symbolism still remains. Orchids go to speak for rare and delicate beauty, and can be a great addition to any flower arrangement you may make. To have a few orchids included in your custom flower arrangement, simply ask when you call us, and we would be more than happy to oblige. Also, if you tell us a little about the person you are getting the flowers for, and what you feel for them, we guarantee that we can make an arrangement to symbolize your exact personal situation. All you need to get started is a simple phone call, so give us a call today!
