Inspired by the Victorian-era language of flowers, a posy is a small, round bouquet of flowers and herbs that are chosen based on their meanings to convey a message, such as rose for love, hypericum berry for protection, mint for warmth, hydrangea for happiness, and geranium for friendship.
The gift of a posy is a concrete way to show your love for someone and attaching a keepsake sentiment tag that lists each flower and its meaning ensures that, even after the arrangement has faded, the recipient can continue to cherish the gesture.
Since it's release in 2019, The Posy Book, authored by Teresa Sabankaya, owner and founder of Bonny Doon Garden Company, these heartfelt message bouquets, or posies, have been featured in numerous magazines, newspapers, and television shows.
