Whatever it is you need to say, you can definitely say it with roses. Sure, classic red roses are always a safe choice, but isn’t it time you step out of your safe zone? If you’re celebrating an anniversary, a purple rose might be a good reminder of how far you’ve come, and it represents love at first sight. While more uncommon, orange roses actually represent desire and passion. Send a bunch to your lover and your beloved might just plant one on you.
Revered for the bright pop of colour they bring to a bouquet, sunflowers are a staple in celebrating happy occasions. Reminiscent of the sun’s comforting warmth, they represent happiness, adoration and dedication. Ideal for celebrating the joys of life and the exciting milestones that come with it. Why not include it in a bouquet the next time you’re celebrating a loved one’s birthday or graduation?
It’s easy to see why the uniquely shaped flower is a favorite. The simple yet elegant tulip has been widely used to represent ‘perfect love’. Red ones are traditionally associated with true love, perfect for a wedding proposal or to mark the start of a burgeoning romance. They’ll look effortlessly classy in any posy, and are great for reminding your partner you love them a whole bunch.
