Saturday, March 23, 2024
115 Public Sq, Gallatin, TN

Did you know that back in the Victorian Era there was a whole unspoken language of flowers? In the Victorian Era, etiquette was the name of the game. Feelings and emotions had to be discreet. Since you could not just come out and say it, the Language of Flowers was how sentiment was expressed. Depending on the bloom, the color and even how you received the bouquet would make or break a relationship. Messages of love, friendship, or even disdain could be sent and then decoded upon arrival with your decoding book.

At this event, learn about the history of sending secret messages out in the open and the beauty and meaning behind your favorite blooms. You will get to choose between two messages and make our own bouquet! Classes are Saturday, March 23rd and Friday, March 29th both at 1 pm.
