Rosemary=Remembrance, Pears=Affection, Pomegranates=Elegance. The language of flowers plays a large role in this traditional Victorian topiary centerpiece. Along with the meanings, inspiration was found by the soft hues of the time period and the textures of fruits, flowers and herbs. It is evident that the Victorians picked, gathered and were resourceful with their materials but were distinct when it came to the style of even the simplest of centerpieces.
Flowers and materials featured: Pears, Pomegranates, Rosemary, Spray Roses, Kochia, Eucalyptus, Rice Flower, Hypericum Berry, Brunia
