A combination of different types of flowers and flower colors can express your feelings on a more personal level. Pink Perfection combines the suggestion of love, gratitude, and appreciation that pink roses symbolize with the wealth, prosperity and abundance that are messages that orchids and Stargazer lilies express.

Sending the Perfect Message with the Right Color of Roses

Sending the Perfect Message with the Right Color of RosesAny flower can convey beauty and rich emotion, but the rose is in a category all its own. The classic symbol of love, the rose is an ideal flower to send for Valentine’s Day, Anniversaries or whenever you want to convey love on any level. While red roses have traditionally signified romantic love and passion, roses come in a rainbow of different additional colors to delight the senses. Here are some of the alternate rose colors (besides red) along with their meaning and symbolism:

Pink roses. The pink rose symbolizes feminine elegance, class and refinement, but its meaning can vary along with the specific hue. Light pink exudes grace, admiration and happiness, while deep pinks convey warmth and gratitude.

White Roses. The white rose is often associated with weddings, young love, innocence and purity. When you send a bouquet of white roses, this gesture exudes truth, reverence, unconditional love and pure intentions.

Yellow roses. Yellow roses bring a sunny vibe to any relationship and are the perfect color to send to friends and colleagues to brighten their day. Yellow roses exude joy, a caring spirit, warmth and appreciation.

Orange roses. With their warm, pleasant and vibrant hues, orange-colored roses send a message of both desire and enthusiasm. If you feel that heady mix of attraction and admiration for someone, a bouquet of orange roses is the perfect way to let them know.

Purple roses. Lilac and purple-colored roses have a magical, enchanting quality. Deeper violet roses have a regal, royal vibe, while medium-toned purple roses convey desire, respect and “love at first sight.” By contrast, light purple roses have a gentler, more spiritual connotation. Why not send purple roses to your secret crush on Valentine’s Day?

A multi-colored rose bouquet. If you can’t decide on just one color of rose, consider sending a multi-colored mixed rose bouquet. Combining red, pink and white roses expresses unity and is perfect for couples who may have been struggling; however, combining red, orange and yellow roses exudes joy and happiness about your connection.

The rose is the classic flower of love and is perfect for Valentine’s Day gift giving. Whether the recipient is a friend, parent, sibling, colleague or the romantic love of your life, there’s a rose color to match the sentiment you wish to convey. Express your love this Valentine’s Day season with rose bouquets in a rainbow of colors.

 

Send Something Different for Valentine’s Day

shutterstock_123839782When you want to give a gift that shows you care for Valentine’s Day, what do you think about giving? For many people, the natural choice is roses. However, roses are not the only gift you can give for this big occasion. This year, before you send the same old roses, why not look over some of the other cool options available here at Gordon Boswell? We offer so many choices—you may decide that roses are not the answer after all!

  • Gourmet Baskets – Instead of flowers, what about food? Everyone likes a yummy treat! Whether you choose coffee, cookies, crackers or another type of gourmet treat, one of the gift baskets available at Gordon Boswell makes a great way to say I love you! These are an excellent alternative to flowers, especially for men who may prefer a gift that is a little more manly than roses.

 

  • Balloons – Choosing a balloon bouquet instead of or in addition to a floral bouquet is a fun way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Balloons are beautiful and make a bold statement. Today’s Mylar balloons are long lasting and come in a variety of prints and designs.

 

  • Stuffed Animals – If you can’t be there for the big day to hug your loved one, a stuffed animal is a huggable choice. We offer a few options at Gordon Boswell, or if you have something special picked out, you can bring it in the store and we can incorporate it into a floral bouquet. Or accompany a cuddly bear alongside roses and chocolates!

 

  • Other Flowers – Plenty of other flowers can be just as romantic as roses. Think about lilies, tulips and daisies—to name a few. Moving beyond roses means that you are creative and unique—something that your loved one is sure to appreciate. Or you can always combine the classic rose with one of these other romantic flowers.

While these options are excellent, they are far from the only floral and non-floral gifts we offer. Give us a call, check out our website or come into the store itself and see what we have available. You will quickly realize that today there are more Valentine’s Day gift ideas available than ever before. You can impress your loved one with your creativity and put a smile on his or her face.
