Say What You Mean on Valentine’s Day with the Right Colored Flowers

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, so it’s time to start thinking about that special someone in your life (or the one you’d like to bring into your world someday soon!). While there are plenty of ways to let someone know how you feel about them, at Cascade Floral Wholesale we think the best way to express your feelings is with flowers! And on Valentine’s Day, we believe it’s best when those flowers are roses. But it’s important to know what each color represents when sending roses. While the meaning behind many other flowers tended to go by the wayside at the end of the Victorian era, the meaning behind rose colors still stands strong today. Make sure you say what you mean when sending flowers to your sweetie!

Hot and Spicy:  Red and Orange

To denote classic love and devotion, red roses say it all. While some may find a dozen red roses to feel a bit cliché, there is nothing that epitomizes true love more specifically than red roses. For a slight twist on the romance of these beautiful, fragrant blooms, consider sending just one for significance. Or, spice things up with the fiery alternative of orange roses. The intense blooms are just as fragrant as red roses and speak to the passion you feel for your love. Plus the excitement of something a little different is always exciting! 


Sweet and Innocent:  Pink and White

To indicate the sweetness and innocence of your love, and maybe for a brand-new love, send pink roses. The soft gentleness of these blooms will speak to the purity and innocence of your love for your recipient. These make beautiful gifts from fathers to daughters and between young loves. White roses are another great way to indicate a pure, sweet affection for someone special. Send white flowers to someone special as a sign of respect and adoration. White roses are a beautiful Valentine’s gift for moms and grandmothers, as well as sisters and close friends. 

and Cheerful:  Yellow and Peach

For that best friend who always has your back, yellow roses are a classic expression of friendship. Cheer them up and let them know you’re thinking of them when you send yellow roses to your best friend or favorite co-worker. A great alternative to yellow roses is peach blooms. Happy and warm, peach roses are just as friendly and bright as yellow, but a little more subtle and refined. Your best friend will love knowing you were thinking of her when she receives peach or yellow roses from you on Valentine’s Day.

Make sure all the special people in your life know how much you care this Valentine’s Day. Wow them with roses they didn’t expect or keep a long-standing tradition alive with classic beauties. Either way, they’ll know you love them in the special way you do. To learn more about sending roses and the meaning behind the gesture, talk to the experts at Cascade Floral Wholesale.
