Valentines day is coming up fast and besides chocolates, flowers will be one of the top gifts given. Not just any flower, but a Rose. (is there ever a bad time to send roses to you wife, girlfriend, "just a friend", your mom, etc.?) The color of the rose you send is very important, and to help you out we have compiled a list of rose colors and what that color symbolizes. Know what messages you are sending by your bouquet color choice.
RED: Love and Romance The most widespread, the red rose represents true love. Across cultures and throughout history, it has been shown as a political and religious symbol.
YELLOW: Friendship, Joy, Get Well Send yellow and you are sending a message of feelings of joy and delight, appreciation and platonic love without the romantic subtext of other colors. Yellow is also strongly connected with the sun, which make these roses superb for cheering someone up.
PINK: Gratitude, Appreciation, Love The sweetness of pink conveys a message of elegance and grace, as well as poetic romance. Traditional ways to say thanks, dark pink roses are representative of gratitude and appreciation. Light pink can be used as an expression of gentleness and admiration, and also an expression of sympathy.
WHITE: Purity, Innocence, Sympathy, Spirituality Known as the bridal rose, white roses were used in early tradition as a symbol of true love and are now used as a wedding flower. The color white is usually symbolic of unity, virtue and pureness. These roses can also be associated with respect and honor so they are an appropriate memorial for a dearly departed.
ORANGE: Desire, Enthusiasm, Passion Since orange is a combination of red and yellow, these roses are seen as a bridge between love and friendship, and a fiery fascination and passion. Orange roses are also a great gift to say 'I am proud of you.'
LAVENDER: Enchantment, Majesty, Love at First SightPurple is customarily related with royalty. In this sense, lavender (a shade of purple) implies a tone of magnificence and stately majesty. Once Valentines day is over giving flowers is not on hold for the next year. Sending roses is a great way to make a statement and send a message to that special someone any time of the year.
