If you're the true romantic, flowers will be included. As you head to the floral department, roses have to be on your mind.

Now, look at all the colors to choose from. They're all pretty, so should you pick a special color?

  • Red - Long associated with beauty and perfection, red roses are a time-honored way to say “I love you.” There’s no better way than a bouquet of red roses to express your feelings.
  • Pink - A classic symbol of grace and elegance, the pink rose is often given as a token of admiration and appreciation.
  • White - Traditionally associated with marriages and new beginnings, but their quiet beauty has also made them a gesture of remembrance. A bouquet of white rose is a perfect way to say, “I’m thinking of you.”
  • Orange - With their blazing energy, orange roses are the wild child of the rose family. Whatever feelings you might be bubbling over with, orange roses will get the message across with both punch and elegance.

A bouquet of yellow roses tends to light up the room, making them a perfect way to say thanks, get well, congratulations or just, “Hey, thanks for being you.”
