Roses : When To Send Them & Why

Roses are perfect for any occasion because they are classic and
they smell just as terrific as they look. Whether you opt for
real or silk roses, the lucky recipient is sure to be happy.
Below are some common uses for roses:

$ Valentine’s Day. Because the classic red rose is a symbol of
passion, it is undeniably the most popular floral arrangement
to be given on a holiday that is all about love. On Valentine’s
Day, florists find themselves delivering countless orders of
roses to all who are lucky enough to have found love.

$ Wedding bouquet. Speaking of love, there is no better day to
celebrate it than on a wedding day. Many brides prefer to carry
a bouquet draped with roses because of their classic beauty and
elegance.

$ Prom corsage and boutonniere. Every high school student looks
forward to their prom and, as such, they are responsible for
selecting a flower for their date. The gentleman will select a
corsage, either wrist or pinned, that will feature a rose and
ribbons to coordinate with their date’s dress. The young ladies
will select a rose boutonniere for their date, which will
commonly feature a simple rose bloom with an accent of babies
breath.

$ Mother’s Day. Every woman loves roses and this is especially
true of moms on Mother’s Day, which is the perfect day to
remind her how much she means to you with a beautiful bouquet
of roses or a vase filled with a beautiful arrangement and
accented with a red bow.

$ Anniversary. Whether it’s your anniversary, your friends or
family, roses are the perfect gift to celebrate this happy
occasion.

$ Congratulatory messages for a new birth, graduation, new
business or other milestone. Nothing says congratulations quite
as well as roses do.

$ Show of appreciation. If someone has been especially kind,
helped you through a difficult situation or simply offered you
encouragement when you needed it the most, roses are the
perfect way to say ‘thank you’ and offer a thoughtful way of
showing your appreciation.

Just as there are many different occasions for which roses are
appropriate, there are a number of variations in their color.
The most classic rose color is red, but these slender beauties
are also grown in white, pink, peach, yellow, etc. An
arrangement of roses is usually prepared with babies breath,
which is a white decorative addition that adds the perfect
contrast and brings out the brightness of the rose. If you are
looking for a classic way to show you care, roses are just the
ticket.
