Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and that means just one thing: flowers! You simply cannot show up to your dinner reservations, or whatever plans you have on February 14th, without having a bouquet of flowers to give your special someone. Red roses are a staple, and go a long way in showing your feelings and appreciation toward the one you love.
That said, what if you are choosing to celebrate the day of love with your family or a group of friends? If this is the case, and you still want to include special occasion flowers into the plans, then you might not want to gift red roses. After all, that is incredibly romantic, and we have to be realistic — not every Valentine’s Day is as romantic as you always want it to be. Sometimes spending the day with your close gal pals, your mom, sister, or even your entire family is the best way to celebrate.
Special occasion flowers are perfect for Valentine’s Day. Why? Because no matter what your plans are or who they are with, you can also incorporate a beautiful bouquet of blooms into the mix. Even if you’re purchasing them for yourself (nothing wrong with that!), having some roses next to you makes all the difference.
When it comes to buying flowers for your significant other, or someone who you want to be your significant other, you tend to go with red roses. Traditionally, red roses symbolize love and romance, and they are a timeless way to simply say, “I love you.” But what if you want to gift someone something a little more unique this Valentine’s Day? Roses come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, and finding some that push the envelope from the conventional red might be exactly what you need to express your love to your significant other, or your platonic friends.
In today’s post, we’re going to list out your rose color options and what each color means. If you’re looking for roses for Valentine’s Day, or special occasions flowers in general, don’t hesitate to contact Breen’s Florist.
Light Pink Roses – Red roses are beautiful, but there is such simplicity in a bouquet of light pink roses. While they can still represent love, pink roses technically mean “grace.” If you’re looking to give special occasion flowers to your close friends, sisters, or even mother, light pink roses are a wonderful, whimsical option.
Dark Pink Roses — Pink colors, in general, represent femininity and grace. And darker pink colors hint at appreciation. The two symbolisms together make for the most meaningful rose that you can gift your girlfriend, wife, or close platonic friends and family members.
Yellow Roses — Yellow roses are exactly what they look like: pure joy! The bright color adds some life and happiness into any situation, which is what makes this option ideal for any platonic Valentine’s Day gift giving. Plus, they’ll brighten up the room in a matter of moments!
Green Roses — Green isn’t necessarily the most romantic or whimsical color… that is, unless it’s a green rose. Green roses represent rejuvenation, refreshment, and energy. Whether you choose to gift these as they are or in a bouquet of other mixed flowers, you can’t go wrong with the lively look and feel of these roses.
White Roses — If you’ve noticed white roses included in weddings, you’ll now know why. Not only are they beautiful, elegant, and simple, but white roses symbolize purity, innocence, and new beginnings. That said, you don’t necessarily need a reason to include these simple blooms into your Valentine’s Day floral arrangements other than they are absolutely stunning to look at.
Peach Roses — You’ll be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t love the look of a peach-colored rose. According to Passion Growers, this rose options signifies gratitude and appreciation, making it an excellent option to give your significant other, or even a close friend or family member.
Orange Roses — If you like the look of peach roses, but are looking for something a bit more vibrant, orange roses are the way to go. Symbolizing excitement and enthusiasm, you’ll have no problem adding a little sprightliness into your Valentine’s Day with a bouquet of orange blooms.
Lavender Roses — Equal parts whimsical and elegant, lavender roses represent enchantment. They’re beautiful on their own or combined with other blooms in a large rose bouquet. The look and feel of the lavender rose can be as romantic as you want it to be, or simple and sweet. They are a versatile option for anyone wanting to express their love and desire romantically or platonically.
Burgundy Roses — Red roses are elegant, but burgundy roses are a little more intense. If you’re looking to change it up from the classic red rose, burgundy is your option. Representing beauty, these striking blooms will create a romantic air immediately.
