Every Neighborhood including Rittenhouse Square Tells a Story

The story of Rittenhouse Square park is part of history. The Square is one of five park areas designed by Philadelphia founder, William Penn and his surveyor, Thomas Holme. The park was created in the late 17th century, as a place for people in the area to relax, enjoy nature, and put aside the business of the day. In 1813, the park underwent a redesign by French architect, Paul Philippe Cret. Drawing on his French background, Cret modelled Rittenhouse Square on Paris and French gardens.

Just like Rittenhouse Square, flowers and bouquets tell a story. For hundreds of years, people have given flowers to celebrate special occasions, as a token of love or sympathy, and to add a touch of beauty in homes and offices. The color, composition, and variety within a bouquet create a sense of occasion and feeling that is unique. Our in-house artisans create bouquets that help you share your story.

Today you can create your own story, by taking a stroll through the Square, enjoying a drink and treat at one of the many bistros and restaurants that encircle the park or having a unique bouquet delivered to celebrate any occasion.

Giving flowers has been a tradition for hundreds of years, and over time, many blooms have received a meaning. The language of flowers, or “floriography”, has developed over time and is based on the type of flower, color, and number of flowers within a bouquet. Most people know that red roses represent love, but may not know that traditionally, yellow roses represent joy or new beginnings, and white roses symbolize purity or innocence. We create beautiful bouquets using peonies, that represent a happy life.

When choosing your bouquet for delivery, consider the story you tell with the type of flower and color you select whether you are sending a token of love, sympathy, or ‘just because’, consider including a personalized note. Not everyone is aware of the language of flowers.
