Why do people send flowers, and what secret meanings do they hold?This entertaining and addictive little photo-rich volume holds the answers. Since opening NYC-based flower shop POPUPFLORIST, owner Kelsie Hayes has collected the most memorable notes customers have written to accompany an arrangement. These messages range from congratulatory to endearing, hilarious, condoling, sexy, apologetic, and even mysterious, and they offer a peek into the private lives of everyday people. This petite gift book collects 52 of these anonymous notecards, each paired with a flower arrangement inspired by the sender's words and designed with POPUPFLORIST's signature flair, including: A structural trio of anthurium stems, which represent lust, paired with a sexy invitation. A pair of bud vases for a family who just found out they're having twins: "Two little babes instead of one, double the joy and double the fun!" A joyful bouquet of Gerber daisies alongside a congratulatory message for a friend who just got a nose job. A bunch of mauve dahlias accompanied by an enigmatic apology note: After the past 4 years, I won't give up now. I do, and will always, love you. If you want to see me, I will be waiting at Radio City Music Hall, sitting in our seats for Billy Joel. I hope that I'm lucky enough to see you there. A glossary shares the meanings of different flowers to help you create your own arrangements for big life moments, from birthdays to births to breakups. A sweet gift alongside a vase of blooms, this charming hardcover is as inspiring as it is entertaining, and offers expert guidance on how to say it with flowers by arranging your own meaningful bouquets.
