The History and Meaning of Pink Roses

Everyone knows what a rose looks like and what a rose smells like and most people think of the classic red rose first. However, there are various shades of roses, and one of our favorites is the pink rose. Each shade of pink rose has a different meaning, and they can work for almost any occasion, depending on the mood you‘re seeking. Valentine’s Day, saying thank you to a friend, sending flowers to a friend or family member in the hospital, a gift at the start of a new relationship, or just a general show of love and admiration, the pink rose is multipurpose and can convey your emotions perfectly. Here are a few of the different shades of pink roses we use to create bouquets in Philadelphia and what they mean.

  • Dark pink roses: Appreciation and gratitude. Dark pink roses are an excellent flower to send to say thank you to someone special or to gift to someone you are going on a date with for the first time. They can be very romantic in the right circumstances.
  • Medium pink roses: Love and loyalty. Medium pink roses are the perfect flower for a friend who’s in the hospital or a loved one going through a hard time to show your affection and to convey that you are there for them whenever they need you.
  • Light pink roses: Gentleness and admiration. Light pink roses are generally the top choice for Mother’s Day or wedding anniversaries to show how much you admire your mother or partner and how much you appreciate everything they have done for you.
  • The history of pink roses is rich and interesting. The first pink rose was found in a fossil that has been dated back over 40 million years. Recent evidence has been found that the first pink roses were cultivated and grown in a garden (they are usually found in the wild) in the China Imperial Rose Garden roughly 5000 years ago and they have only grown in popularity in recent years. Pink roses are just as much a classic flower as the red rose; they just haven’t had as much popular press as their red counterparts. Another incredible moment in history for the pink rose was during the Victorian era, where pink roses decorated everything from paintings to wallpaper to couch covers and bedspreads.

    Things to Do with Your Dried Pink Rose Petals

    Once your beautiful roses dry out, most people throw them out and move forward. However, there are a few fun things you can do with the dried roses.

  • Make your own potpourri. Once your stunning bouquet has dried out and the petals start falling you can collect them, add a couple of drops of your favorite essential oil, put them all in a small bag and make your sock drawer smell like roses.
  • Make pressed flowers. Everyone did the pressed flower project in school, so the concept is quite basic, but by simply squashing your old roses under some heavy books you can create a lovely decoration for bookmarks, cards, or wedding invitations for a personal touch.
  • Make rose water. Rose water is excellent for the skin as it acts as a cleanser and moisturizer in one. All you need to make rose water is, of course, rose petals, water, some light glycerine (you can leave this out if you have oily skin), and a pot and stove. Boil the water, add in the rose petals, let the mixture simmer until the color leeches out of the petals, then add your glycerine, and stir until melted. Once everything is done, strain the mixture and pour the liquid into a spray bottle for the next time you do your skincare routine.
  • Make your own bath salts. Add your dried petals to Epsom salts, powdered milk, and your favorite essential oils for a dreamy at-home spa experience. Light some candles, put on some music, pour a glass of wine, and enjoy a relaxing bath.
