In the mid┯th century Victorian England the tussie_mussie (small bouquet of flowers) were exchanged between Victorian sweethearts expressing secret love messages; a gift of a traditional Valentine flower unique and personal and very fashionable. Victorians considered a young lady to be cultured if she understood the study of flowers.
Another fun idea is to put a small arrangement together in a holiday mug. Use floral foam as the base of the design. First cover the foam with leather leaf, then add a three white carnations, inserted at different heights, two stems of red pixie carnations, some baby's breath, and red hypericum berries. You could also add some cedar or other evergreen to the design.
