The History of the Nosegay

August 10, 2014 § Leave a comment

IMG_6820

A nosegay, also known as a tussie-mussie or posy, is a small flower bouquet that was introduced in medieval times.

So called because it is an ornament that appeals to the nose, it was carried to accentuate the smell of the woman carrying or wearing it. Since bathing and showering were not regular activities, these flowers provided a lovely respite for the noses of yesteryear.

In the Victorian era, these bouquets were considered to be “all the rage,” so young women were trained in the art of flower arranging. Each flower was carefully selected to convey “the language of flowers” from a man to a woman, or vice-versa. (For example, a red tulip meant a declaration of love, whereas a piece of dogwood meant indifference.)

We’re pretty smitten with this idea, so instead of texting your newest crush, stop in and we’ll help you say it with flowers!
