Variety of Flowers
A gift of flowers is one of the best ways to communicate what you are feeling to that special someone, to your best friend, or your mother. The types of flowers that you select and even the number of flowers you are sending all convey various messages and sometime when we are at a loss of words on what to say then saying it through flowers seems so much easier as well as graceful. Amongst flowers roses are the ones which have the most universal appeal. The whiff of the fragrance of a rose along with its elegant long stems and layered petals are a natural happiness booster which even science agrees upon.
Roses are extremely versatile as a flower and come in the most abundant variation of colors; each color conveying something significant and meaningful. England loves this variety of flower so much that it is officially their national flower. Greek mythology has an interesting fable in which Aphrodite was rushing towards the side of Adonis, the deity of plants and flowers, when the thorns of the flowers caused a gash on her feet and the blood stained the flowers red. That is how roses got their red color!
A red rose has been a sign of love for ages and the number of red roses puts across exactly what stage of the relationship you may be at. Two roses convey a sign of mutual love between a couple, three roses are traditionally best for celebrating a one month anniversary, six roses are when you are maybe a secret admirer or you want to open up about your feelings to the opposite person and finally 12 roses which is the amount you give to your special someone on a special occasion such as your anniversary, Valentines, or even your loves birthday just to reemphasize how much they mean to you. There is one other love in your life like no other, your mother. A gift of red roses to her can reinforce how blessed you feel to have her.
Pink colored roses are not quite as intense in meaning as the red rose but again mostly gifted to show that you care for that person, not necessarily in a romantic way. Your favorite aunt has her birthday coming up or your friend needs a little pep up after going through something in his or her life. Send a bunch of pink roses and that is sure to bring a twinkle in their eye.
A yellow rose is wonderful if you want to send these beautiful flowers to your best friend, or to your boss on his birthday, and also to your father on Father’s Day. These roses are most versatile and communicate a neutral message as you may not want to really have too much depth to your gift like the way a red rose has. Gold roses are also a safe bet to convey friendship but you should keep the taste of the individual you are gifting to in mind when you choose between yellow and gold.
White roses are a sign of innocence and purity; a great choice when you wish to welcome a new born into the world and congratulate the ecstatic parents. Even in weddings the flower of choice in the bridal bouquet is generally white roses to show that this is an occasion filled with gratitude and appreciation for each other. Believe it or not there are rainbow colored roses, purple colored roses and even burgundy colored roses.
