Meaning of Roses

White roses is perceived as pure and bright, and by giving away a white rose a suitor says “You are heavenly” and “I respect and look up to you” to the object of his affection.

Red Roses
is love while a bouquet of red and white roses is a symbol of unity. The same thing is true for a bouquet of white roses with red edges. It is a signal of loyalty and kinship. “You and I are one” and “We stand united”. Just like the red rose, the purple roses symbolises love but the meaning of purple roses are more a symbol of enchantment and love and first sight than the ever lasting love represented by red roses.

Pink roses are generally viewed as a symbol of refinement and elegance. They have however also been used to send more elaborate messages, where the different pink shades were attributed different meanings. The meaning of roses with a deep pink or cerise tone was gratitude and appreciation, while the meaning of a rose with a very light pink shade was sympathy.

A bouquet of only yellow roses means “try to care”.

Orange roses means enthusiasm and eagerness, a new beginning. The meaning of Peach Roses on the other hand is that something has gone well, a deal has been reached.

A deep burgundy color on a rose means “Unconscious beauty” or “You are so beautiful without even knowing it”.

Green roses have existed since 1856 and are a symbol of fertility and fruitfulness.

Black roses is death and new beginnings

Hybrid Tea roses mean “I will never forget you”.

The meaning of Blue Roses are that someone is mysterious.

The meaning of the so called Sweetheart roses is naturally conveyed in their name.
Pale rose colours have generally been a sign of friendship.
The rose color meaning is not the only thing capable of sending a message in a rose bouquet. If you choose to send rosebuds instead of blooming roses, it symbolizes youth and innocent love. Pink and red rose buds say “You are young and lovely” or “I love your youthfulness”, while white rosebuds means “Too young to love”. The moss rosebud was used as a first confession of love.

A full blown rose that is placed together with two rose buds will signify secrecy.
If white roses have been allowed to whither it means “Beauty is fleeting”.
If two roses are wired together to form one single stem it is a signal of engagement and coming marriage.

A crown consisting of roses is a symbol of virtue. Crowns formed from roses have been used at weddings to signify purity.
Rose leaves symbolises hope and optimism.

The meaning of roses can also be affected by their number. A single rose is a symbol of simplicity, and one single red rose is a well known way of saying “I love you”. If you instead combine one red rose with several yellow roses, it will stand for joviality and be an invitation to jolliness and fun.

Bunch of Flowers!!!

Banksia, Bromeliad- orange & yellow, Gerbera, Mums, Celosia and white casa blanca

Someone special to me sent these flowers last May 2008 right at my office desk
!! I was somewhat surprised coz I wasn't expecting it that day. My officemates were teasing me, like, "hey! maybe you bought yourself these flowers", "you could have told your bf that he'd treat us dinner instead of sending you flowers coz its expensive!", etc.

Wow! The feeling is really so great. Specially that its my first time to receive flowers at my workplace. For sure some of them felt envy at the flowers. Most of the flowers were imported from Switzerland. There's even one red flower, "banksia" still at my vase until now. It has the longest life span of all the flowers.

And hey! If you want your girlfriends or mothers to feel the same way I felt, send them some flowers too!! For sure they will love it. If they are far from you, you can order online at any of the following links: http://www.expressregalo.com/; http://www.florabella.com.ph/flower-philippine-flower-delivery.html;
