Sending Roses to Your Love
Sending your love roses can brighten their day, provide decoration for their homes and provide a lovely scent. But what does it mean when you send roses? What are the right roses to send? The general rules is if you send roses of any hue you are well appreciated but the color of the roses you send represent a message to the recipient.
Red roses are for passion specifically denoting love or war. These roses are for that special girlfriend or boyfriend in your life. They can be costly but make a great impression. If you can't afford a dozen roses then try half a dozen and if that is still too steep then a single rose might do the trick.
White Roses are usually give in the event of new beginnings. These can be sent after an argument or used during a wedding. Most commonly white roses signify purity and renewal. They are also the perfect roses to send your Mother on any occasion.
Pink roses are given in appreciation usually to indiviudals with whom you have a platonic relationship. They can be given to Sisters or Mothers but generally they are given to women with whom you have no romantic relationship and are not related to but a great deal of appreciation.
Yellow roses are also known as the loyalty rose. They are given when a perosn is expressing loyalty to another individual or in appreciation of exceptional loyalty through great hardships.
Black roses are some what of a novelty. They are often given as a practical joke when someone is a bit mature or for Halloween but they can also symbolize love until death or just death in general. It should be noted that black roses are made or they are dark red roses.
If you send roses you are in. They will be appreciated and you will be appreciated for your gesture. And while their color can have meaning you should always defer to the recipients preference. Some woman prefer pink roses to red or white roses to yellow. Fortunately, the roses aren't the only message sent. Your florist will happily include a card for which you can write your feelings and the roses can then just be a pretty decoration in the home which smells good.
