For being such a small flower, Lily of the valley gives off such a tremendous scent. The flowers look like a small bell and they are generally usually white, although sometimes with a tinge of pink as well. Pull together a bunch of Lily of the Valley to make adorable, tiny bouquets.

Lily of the valley has the flower meaning of ‘return to happiness’ — humility, chastity, sweetness, purity and is said to bring luck in love.
