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 sunflower ! Oh sunflowers, the quintessential summertime bloom. Being one of the most well-known flowers out there, sunflowers seem to bring joy to many far and wide thanks to their bright, happy petals. This all being said, the meaning of the sunflower can be derived from all of the above. Overall, the sunflower means happiness, joy, warmth, strength, and admiration. The sunflower draws parallels to the sun itself as well, which is why it is said that by giving someone a sunflower you are giving them the warmth and comfort of a sunny day. Sunflowers are perfect for almost anything—from teacher’s gifts to get-well flowers or for a special someone or even a wedding—it is an extremely versatile flower. However, our favorite is to put a sunflower arrangement in a common spot in our home, as it just lights up the room with joy and happiness. No matter how you plan to use the sunflower, know that you can always include it in your next personalized arrangement from us. For any and all occasions, just stop on into any one of our locations and see what we can do for you. From all of us at the Garden of Eden Flower Shop, we wish you a very happy, and sunny, weekend!
