Victorian Era, Flowers & HAPPINESS

Following a theme of flowers, the Victorian era and happiness, might I suggest a few activities:

Read: The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh and the nonfiction companion A Victorian Flower Dictionary by Mandy Kirby to learn all about the hidden meaning of flowers.

Watch: Cranford or The Young Victoria to get yourself in the Victorian era mindset.

Listen: Try classical music from the following Romantic composers to fully immerse yourself in the Victorian era: Johannes Brahms, Claude Debussy, or Franz Schubert

Do: Attend the Lily of the Valley is for Happiness program and learn the Victorian language of flowers.  Wendy Batchelder from “Lost Arts” will appear in full Victorian costume to talk about the meaning of flowers while you make a simple tussie mussie to give to someone who makes you happy!  Pre-registration is required.  (For teens and adults)
