• Roses Language

    Posted on August 13, 2012 by Lola Kristiani in Rest & Relax.

    Flowers create a special language of their own.  When you send flowers you send more than beautiful blossoms you send a message from your heart. Flowers have helped us convey our feelings for centuries and their colors play a big part in that. Different colors and combinations of colors can mean different things. Rose is a perfect choice for expressing the nuances of your deepest feelings

    Roses are one of the most popular types of flower, and being that they come in various colors and varieties, there is so much one can say when handing over a rose. Roses are the most widely acclaimed flower with a silent voice that speaks the loudest. If you want to be sure and send that just-right-message with a rose, keep the following in mind:

    Red Roses:

    Have always been the symbol for love and romance. A gift or a present of a red rose is like saying ‘I love you’. The red rose also stands for beauty and perfection. Bringing someone a bouquet of red roses is a wonderful and romantic way to express your love and affection for that special person in your life.

    Pink Roses:

    There are a lot of variations of the pink rose. Over all, pink roses are used to convey gentle emotions such as admiration, joy and gratitude. Light pink rose blooms are indicative of sweetness and innocence. Deep pink rose blooms convey deep gratitude and appreciation. Pink roses also connote elegance and grace. A gift or a bouquet of pink roses also stands for admiration,  joyfulness and appreciation.

    White Roses:

    A bouquet of white roses represents innocence and purity. They are traditionally associated with brides and marriage. It is also a symbol of honor and reverence. They are often used as an expression of remembrance and sadness.

    Yellow Roses:

    Yellow roses evoke a feeling of happiness and warmth.  The symbolic meaning of a yellow rose is that of friendship and joy. The bright and sunny color of yellow roses brings out the feeling of happiness. A bouquet of yellow roses is a great way to celebrate friendships, welcome back, and a promise of a new beginning.

    Orange or Coral Roses:

    While a yellow rose reminds us of the sun, an orange rose reminds us of a fiery blaze. These fiery bloomssignify passion and energy. Orange roses can be used to express intense desire, pride and fervor. They also convey a sense of fascination. These flowers rival only the red roses as messengers of passion in romance.

    Peach Roses:

    Peach roses are so delicate and yet so charming. Their main attraction is their simple elegance and breathe-taking beauty. The symbolic significance of peach roses is as engaging as their elegant beauty. The simple peach rose expresses sociability, friendliness, purity and innocence. This rose so delicate and dainty in its beauty delivers a simple message of genuine warmth and sincere thoughts. That is why social gatherings and friendly parties often sport these beautiful roses in abundance.

    Purple or Lavender Roses: 

    The beauty of purple roses, or lavender roses, are especially enchanting, so it’s perfect that the purple rose symbolizes enchantment. The purple rose is often used to express love at first sight. 

    Black Roses:

    There really are no truly black roses, or roses that are the color black. Roses that are labeled black roses are actually red roses that have a blackish hue to their petals, because they are very dark red, such as the ‘Baccara’ rose, ‘Black Magic’, ‘Black Beauty’, “Black Ice’ and ‘Black Jade’ rose varieties. Black roses symbolizes sad and tragic romance, hatred and farewell. Black roses are often used at funerals. 

    Mixed Roses:

    By mixing rose blooms of different colors purposefully, you can create a bouquet of emotions. For example, a bouquet of red and white roses would mean I love you intensely and my intentions are honorable. A random mix of roses would convey mixed feelings or send a message: ”I don’t know what my feelings are yet but I sure do like you enough to send you roses.”

    At a loss for words on how to tell someone exactly why you chose flowers in the color. Using flowers, especially roses to convey messages dear to the heart has been a tradition established over several centuries.
