The Most Popular Valentine’s Day Flowers and What They Mean

flower meaningsTime certainly flies, and that colloquialism doesn’t only apply to the times when we’re having a good time. Before we know it, Valentine’s Day will be here. Our team of experienced Breen’s Florist floral designers want to make sure that you are able to get the most beautiful flowers of your choice for that special loved one in your life.

Dating back to the Victorian Era when the Language of Flowers began to evolve, different types of flowers have varying significance, as do their respective colors.

One flower is universally associated with Valentine’s Day. Florists all over the country sell more roses than any other flower for this romantic holiday. Red roses are the ultimate symbol of passion. We believe that our spectacular one-of-a-kind exclusive Twilight Signature Roses are the ideal flower to share with someone when you want to express your love.

Lilies are another popular variety of flower to give someone as a gift for Valentine’s Day. If you want to tell someone that you feel like they treat you like royalty, or that you think they’re regal, then give them a gift that’s Simply Stunning. Calla lilies are associated with regality and royalty, and this arrangement of callas that are nestled on a bed of hydrangeas is as elegant as it is special.

If you are going to ask someone to marry you, and you want to declare your passion for them on the grandest possible scale, then our Monet arrangement is as over-the-top as you can get. Red roses convey feelings of passionate love while stargazer lilies suggest ambitiousness.

When you want to go all out on Valentine’s Day and send the epitome of luxury and refinement, you want to choose orchids because those are two of the sentiments they express. They are also associated with beauty, love, luxury, strength, refinement and thoughtfulness. The gift of orchids suggests that you want to seduce the recipient.

Valentine’s Day is all about expressions of love and fondness. During the Victorian Era, people were reluctant to express passionate feelings verbally. This led to the creation of the Language of Flowers, which is just as relevant today as it was back then. Don’t put off thinking about your Valentine’s Day gifts. Let us help you choose a floral arrangement or customize one that will convey everything you hope to express through flowers.

What the Many Different Colors of Roses Mean

shutterstock_14492851For many couples, setting aside particular days to celebrate their love can be a wonderful way to reconnect and improve their bond with one another. Anniversaries and Valentine’s Day in particular tend to be wonderful occasions for this type of celebration. With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, now is a common time for many people to begin the hunt for the perfect gift for that special someone. At Breen’s Florist, we have developed a guide to some of the most common rose colors that we think are absolutely perfect for those looking to celebrate their love. Each of these flowers has particular traditional meanings that can communicate different messages. Use this guide to begin considering what color will will send the message that will work best for a particular relationship.

The red rose

Red roses are one of the most traditional flowers of love. These flowers are commonly associated with romantic and passionate love, making them a wonderful selection to tell that special someone the value they have.

Many people in relationships, however, want to find a way to leave their own mark on the gifts they give, rather than just giving a standard, traditional gift. Look for an arrangement that has something unique. For example, we offer an arrangement of six, stunningly deep red roses that appear in the glass vase. On the outside of the vase, we attached a carefully crafted leaf heart accent. The details of a gift tend to be what people appreciate the most.

The white rose

The white rose can be a delightful alternative to red roses for those who do not want to go the traditional route. White roses commonly have associations with young love and innocence. They also speak to loyalty. Their elegance and gentle beauty help them appeal to just about everyone as well. This is a stunning arrangement that should bring a smile to the face of any recipient.


Twilight Spice

Purple and lilac 

Purple and related shades and hues can also be excellent alternatives to the traditional red. This color has strong ties to enchantment, love at first sight, and desire. The message they communicate make them an excellent choice for a couple in love.

It can also be fun to take a break from the standard bouquet of roses. Consider getting our Twilight Spice arrangement containing 10 roses in a low, long vase. When the flowers open as the gorgeous and breathtaking blooms they are, it will make anyone appreciate this thoughtful gift.

Celebrate love with the wonderful gift of flowers. Those who struggle to come up with the right gift for that special someone should consider some of these alternate rose colors and see if one of these messages would work well for them and their relationship.


Rose Alternatives

shutterstock_123839782When it comes time to pick a gift for your loved one for Valentine’s Day, there is only one obvious option, right? Roses are the traditional choice. However, there are a number of reasons why you may not want to go the traditional route. Perhaps you have given roses many times in the past, or you feel like roses are a bit too “lovey-dovey” for a new relationship. Whatever the reason, we would like to offer you a few different choices you may want to consider this year.

  • Tulips – Another romantic flower, which is a little different from a rose, is the tulip. Tulips come in a number of different colors and can be displayed in a number of different ways. Breen’s offers the “Season of Love” a cute heart shaped vase filled with pink and red tulips.
  • Candy – Instead of that boring box of candy, why not offer a basket filled to the brim with chocolate or other goodies? The Chocoholics Basket is one delicious option and makes a great choice for men as well as women.
  • Live Plants – A live plant can be just as romantic as roses. Most florists, including Breen’s, offer live plants for something a little bit different.
  • Balloons – One of the most dramatic gifts you can have delivered on Valentine’s Day is a balloon bouquet. You can choose to give these as the gift themselves, or use balloons as an accent with the “main gift.” Either way, balloons are impossible to ignore!

Whether you need the perfect Valentine’s gift for someone special here in Houston, or halfway across the world, Breen’s Florist can help! It’s time to start planning for Valentine’s Day—don’t miss your chance to make this the most special holiday with your loved one yet.

Flowers for the Whole Year

zoom_flowers-for-a-year-product-15011311336As a gift that symbolizes love, devotion, friendship, and just about every other human emotion, flowers are a continuously surprising and always dynamic gift. If you enjoy the occasional bouquet or vase of flowers in your home, you might want to think about getting Flowers for a Year from your local florist.

Flowers for a Year is an amazing gift that keeps on giving all year long. Your recipient will receive a beautiful flower delivery every single month for a year and will get to enjoy seasonal blooms and gorgeous blossoms whether it’s sunny and green outside or cold and snowy.

A Perfect Symbol of Valentine’s Day

If you ask the average person what they think of when someone says “Valentine’s Day,” you’ll probably get answers like luscious flowers, chocolate, and romantic dates. As one of the biggest days of the year for flowers, Valentine’s Day is the day she’ll expect a huge vase of roses or a romantic bouquet and a trip to your favorite restaurant.

If you’re looking to do something different and inspiring this year, consider buying her Flowers for a Year. Enjoy the celebration with your V-Day bouquet and then celebrate every month after that with a new arrangement. Tell her over and over that she’s the only one.

Close the Distance with Flowers

If you live on the other side of the country from your mom or another special person in your life, think about getting Flowers for a Year to let her know that she’s always in your thoughts even though you’re far apart.

Imagine this summer when your mom wistfully remembers all the fun you used to have as a kid playing in the backyard with your friends. Now, she’ll have a vase of flowers to enjoy and to remember those fun summers.

The coolest part about giving flowers – and an entire year at that – is that it’s just so easy to make someone happy with a lovely bouquet. The combination of beauty, fragrance, and the regular arrival of a new bouquet from your local florist will make every month a beautiful month.
