What colour roses should you send for Valentine’s Day?
There is the traditional red, of course, signifying true romantic love. But many women actually love the peach or pink shades instead. If you’ve been paying attention, you may have picked up her favourite colour. Use that knowledge to send a bouquet that is especially suited to her.
What do rose colours mean? White roses indicate elegance and devotion. Yellow denote joy and friendship. Orange stands for fascination and passion. Peach and pink show affection, and red is love.
What about the number of roses? A single rose indicates love at first sight. Three roses simply mean I Love You. Ten roses denote perfection. A dozen means Be Mine. Fifteen mean I’m Sorry. Put 50 roses together to represent Unconditional Love, or 108 to say Will You Marry Me?
Now, these lists are just tradition. You are free to set your own traditions and personalize your gift. As a matter of fact, you don’t even have to send roses for Valentine’s Day! We find that tulips and gerberas are increasing in popularity, and a spring bouquet that includes these flowers plus a rose or two will be full and lovely. Gerberas, roses and fragrant Sorbonne lilies are arranged in our Melody vase arrangement. Or take a look at our Rainbow Collection #2 with its bright colours – it’s been very popular this month!
Orchids are an elegant Valentine gift. A single stem of cymbidium orchids in a tall clear glass vase is a beautiful look, and the orchids last for more than ten days. Or our Touch of the Tropics is an affordable vase of dendrobium orchids that looks stylish and classy.
