That time of year has come around again; 14th February – Saint Valentines Day. Traditionally, it’s a day to give and receive flowers and chocolates to show your love to that special person. The most historic flower given and received on Valentines Day is the rose. Dating back to the 17th Century, the rose is a representative of love in all forms. It is said, that the red rose was the favourite flower of Venus, the roman Goddess of Love and Beauty.
There are multiple choices for the colour of a rose and each colour has a different meaning…
Red roses traditionally stand for eternal love, passion, courage and respect.
Ivory roses are symbolic of purity, truth, innocence, reverence and silence.
Yellow roses symbolise friendship, celebration, joy, hope and freedom.
Pink roses symbolise admiration, gentleness and sweetness.
Peach roses symbolise desire, excitement, appreciation and gratitude.
Lilac roses depict that the sender has fallen in love at first sight and is enchanted with the recipient.
A combination of red and ivory roses convey a message of “together we Stand” indicating bonding and harmony.
So take your pick on an array of colours and if roses aren’t your thing, please let me know what else you would like and I will be more than happy to create a personalised arrangement for you.
