The perfect Valentine’s Day sentiment for the love of your life, your closest friends, or even for a person who deserves a gesture of gratitude, flowers will make anyone feel special, loved, and appreciated. Flowers come in countless varieties and colors and can be arranged in an endless number of unique bouquets. In addition to their beauty and lovely scent, flowers, whether they are roses, tulips, orchids, or lilies, and their hues convey different meanings and hold unique symbolism. Selecting a bouquet not only for its beauty, but also for its intrinsic meaning adds an extra layer of thoughtfulness and delight to a floral gift. Not every symbolic meaning is appropriate for Valentine’s Day, we recommend looking for the following colors in your bouquets to send the right message this holiday.
Red – Along with pink, red is probably the color most associated with Valentine’s Day because it has come to symbolize passion and intense love. A bouquet of red roses makes the perfect gift for your true valentine. If the love of your life has a soft spot for a different type of flower, spring for the blooms in a red variety to keep the passion alive. If you feel great passion for someone, but also want to express honest intentions, mix a few white blooms (the color of purity) into your bouquet.
Orange – Like red, the color orange represents fiery passion and make a good substitute for traditional red blooms.
Pink – Pink flowers often connote feels of joy, admiration, and gratitude. The color pink conveys gentle emotions and often symbolizes grace and elegance. Though the emotions are less intense than red and orange, pink blooms do still carry romance. A bouquet of pink stargazer lilies symbolizes aspiration and are appropriate for a new relationship.
Yellow – A perfectly platonic color choice, yellow connotes sunny feelings of happiness associated with friendship. A bouquet of any yellow flower will convey warm feelings, appreciation, and kinship. Yellow flowers are the perfect way to show someone your appreciation and caring.
