What do various flowers signify where you live? In many parts of the world, children love to pick flowers.
They may give gifts of wildflowers and flowering weeds to parents, teachers, or friends. Or, they may tie the stems together to create flower bracelets, necklaces, and crowns.
Bouquets of flowers are expected on certain special occasions. These may include dates, weddings, anniversaries, funerals, and holidays such as Mother's Day.

Small flower arrangements called corsages and boutonnieres are worn at events like proms, dances, weddings, and quinceañeras. Some are worn as a pin on the lapel, others on the wrist.
