Congratulations on your anniversary

Gifts of flowers and other presents are sent on specific wedding anniversaries to celebrate a successful and enduring marriage. The gifts are symbols of the happiness the couple shares and there are specific types of gifts said to represent each anniversary year. From Paper to Tin to Ruby to Gold. There are modern and traditional variations for almost every year. We like Crystal or a Watch on your 15th. And the traditional gift on your 4th is Fruit. Who knew!

Below is the ‘official flower anniversary’ list. We see all types of flowers as part of our weddings and are always happy when we see Sunflowers and Freesia. Is it just me that is thinking that when you reach your 60th wedding anniversary you could expect a little more focus and effort than ‘white flowers’ #justsaying
