Lets look at the meaning of color first.
  • Red: Red is the symbol of love. To give red roses says "I love you still"
  • White: Shows purity and innocence. They also represent humility, youthfulness and charm.
  • Blue: Unobtainable, impossible love.
  • Pink: To give pink roses shows grace, joy, and gratitude. Pale pink also has the meaning of fun attached to it.
  • Orange: Desire and enthusiam. These would be a great choice to give to someone if you want the relationship to develop further.
  • Yellow: Joy and friendship - yellow roses don't specifically show love. They can also represent starting over,or a new beginning. Yellow tipped with red shows friendship falling in love.
  • Brown: Earth or wood. They can also mean friendship or appreciation.
  • Purple: Enchantment, mystery, or royalty.

How Many To Give?

The number of roses that you give is important. Convey the right message by giving the correct number of roses!
  • 1:Love at first sight - you are "the one"
  • 2:Mutual love and feelings
  • 3: Also says "I Love You".
  • 7: Together for ever
  • 10:Represents perfection. To give someone 10 roses shows you feel that way about them.
  • 12:The standard for "be mine". Often given on Valentines day, when for a married couple,actually 7 or 10 might be a better choice. (slightly cheaper as well! ;-)
  • 13:A sign of enduring friendship
  • 15: Im sorry

To give a mix of red and white roses. This shows unity, and togetherness.
Pink and red rosebuds. Young and lovely...perhaps the perfect gift for a young lady?

No special meaning for this post today.
I just saw the Yellow Rose of Texas, and then found the meanings of roses!
Thought you might enjoy them, also!

I did think it was kind of funny that the largest amount of roses given was
the ones that say "I'm sorry". 
I guess you have to REALLY say it big to make it acceptable to the one
you have hurt!!!

Be Blessed Today!!!
