What Roses Mean

shutterstock_14492851It is hard to imagine there could be any flower that is more steeped in tradition than the rose. The moment anyone mentions roses most people will automatically think about love. That’s because all over the world, people associate roses with love. For over 200 years people have used flowers to express their feelings. Here at Peoples Flowers, we’re gearing up for Valentine’s Day. We love to help the people of Albuquerque use the “language of flowers” to tell the special person in their lives how they really feel about them. Roses are virtually synonymous with Valentine’s Day, but roses come in many colors, so you don’t have to limit yourself to red ones.

To help you prepare for Valentine’s Day, we’ve come up with some with some fantastic ideas that will let you tell your loved one exactly how you feel, and you can say that using different color roses.

To Show Gratitude and Happiness

For someone you consider gentle, graceful, loyal and sweet, show your admiration by giving them Pink Spray Roses. Although many people assume that spray roses are nothing more than small or miniature roses, that’s not the case at all. The term “spray rose” refers to a cluster of flower heads that grow on a single stem. When you choose spray roses, you don’t have to get as many stems to create the look of a dozen or more roses in a vase.

Tell Someone They Bring You Joy

When you love someone, they bring you joy. If you want to use flowers to tell your beloved how much they light up your life, or you delight in your relationship, give them a Dozen Yellow Roses. The number of roses you give is as important a consideration as the rose color you choose. Eleven roses represent a declaration of deep and true love. A single rose of any color expresses thanks. With a bouquet of a dozen yellow roses, you zoom_infoLavenderRosesweb12011741417130709113543can tell the person you love that you are thankful for the truly deep love the two of you share.

The Meaning of a Dozen Lavender Roses

Lavender roses convey several messages simultaneously. If you fell for your loved one “at first sight,” but never dared to admit that, you can tell them with lavender roses. Lavender roses serve as a reminder that you want the relationship to continue to grow. Like all roses, however, the color lavender can also say, “I love you” in a less traditional way.
