Colorful Bouquet for Valentines Day

Valentine’s Day is less than a week away so today we’re going to take a look at the message that a rose’s color sends to the recipient –

Red – This classic flower has long been the picture of perfect love and romance.  Hence, the red rose is the true embodiment of Valentine’s Day.  Message: You are loved.

Yellow – Yellow is the color of exuberant energy and so it is said that the yellow rose symbolizes joy and happiness.  Often this rose is given amongst friends.  However, yellow roses can also symbolize forgiveness.  Message: Let’s be friends.

Pink – Pink roses send a message of softness, gentleness, and appreciation.  Pink roses of a darker hue are usually given as a sign of appreciation.  On the other hand, roses of a light pink hue are often given when the giver wants to express sympathy.  Message: I cherish our relationship.

Lavender – With their almost mystical appearance lavender and lilac roses have come to symbolize love at first sight.  The lavender and lilac color roses are also said to convey wisdom.  Message: This is pure love in its highest and most idealistic form.

White– White roses are often associated with innocence, loyalty, and purity hence white roses are known to represent marriage.  Earlier in history it was the white rose that symbolized true love. However, as the red rose became more popular, the white rose came to be tied to young or new marriages.  Message: I appreciate our loyalty to one another.
