the meaning of colors

Not good with words? Don’t worry. That’s what roses are for. Roses aren’t just pretty to look at. They also say a lot. After all, sometimes the strongest messages are the silent ones. Ready to give it a try? All you have to do is make sure you send the right color and the right number of roses.

The red rose is a powerful, vibrant bloom. Use it wisely. As a timeless symbol of romantic love, it’s perfect to send to someone you have loved for five days, or 50 years — it’s equally effective for new love as it is for long and enduring romances.

Pink roses

Pink symbolizes feminism, elegance and refinement. But it’s not just for the ladies, it’s great to send to guys too! Choose the right hue, and say so much more: deep pink to show appreciation; a paler shade for admiration.

Assorted roses

Send a mixed message! No, not in that love/hate way, but by sending a rainbow’s worth of roses to someone you care about. When you send an assorted bouquet to a coworker or friend you may not know that well, you can’t go wrong.
