What the Meanings are Behind the Different Colors of Roses

shutterstock_14492851It’s crunch time here at Boyd’s, and our staff is hard at work, making sure that everything is ready for Valentine’s Day. Romance is in the air. We’re going to make sure that you have the perfect gift for that special someone. Valentine’s Day is all about love – making declarations of love, or just telling that special person, how you really feel.

There is an unspoken language of flowers, and for hundreds of years, people have used this language as a way to send messages to other people. Sometimes they used flowers and different flower colors to say things they wouldn’t dare to say aloud. The different colors of roses are very symbolic. We’ve put together some suggestions that will help you deliver a message to the special people in your life – using the wordless language of flowers.

You Are My Sunshine

We took those words from the beginning of a song because they really describe our special Box of Sunshine bouquet. Yellow roses send a message to the person you are giving them to, that they make you feel joyful. They also convey the feeling that you delight in your friendship with them. If you’re just getting to know someone and aren’t quite ready to profess your everlasting love for them, yellow roses are sentimental and special. They’re appropriate for a budding friendship.

The Sign of Appreciation or Gratitude

Do you want to thank someone for doing something for you? Do you want to tell someone you’re grateful for their presence in your life, or that you appreciate them? That’s the message you’ll send when you give someone our Peach Rose Dozen. In case those sentiments feel too distant, there is another way to interpret the meaning behind roses. The number of roses in an arrangement is almost as important as the color of the flowers. Six roses symbolize the need to be loved or cherished. A dozen roses double that sentiment, so you really deliver a message of love with the color peach.

Instant Attraction

If you are ready to confess to someone that you fell in love with them the moment you saw them, then our Lavender or Purple Rose Dozen is what you want. Lavender roses say many things, including “I love you.” The color also signifies a desire to see the relationship continue to grow. When you add the number of roses in an arrangement to the symbolism, you’re really showing that special someone, how important they are to you.
