When sending flowers it is customary to add a card with some clever words to reinforce the impact of the gift. Sadly, yet realistically, many of us stumble over just the right words to use when crafting this message.

Lately, Ode à la Rose has noticed a number of our more creative clients have been including a few lines of poetry or a popular quote that expresses the intention of the sender.

Coming up with these bon mots can be difficult, so we’ve decided to make a list of 10 of them that may come in handy the next time you want to add just a little more on the card that accompanies your floral delivery.

A flower knows, when its butterfly will return,
and if the moon walks out, the sky will understand;
but now it hurts, to watch you leave so soon,
when I don’t know, if you will ever come back.
