The Language of Roses
Love Roses? When you pick out your cake do you know what your rose colors mean? I have a few just for you: Blue Roses- The blue rose denotes the excitement, new opportunities, and new possibilities that new ventures bring. The mysterious beginnings of new things and the excitement therein are very nicely expressed by this flower. Red Roses- traditionally mean love and affection, romantic and abiding Love, true love, I love you, desire, courage and passion, congratulations, respect and appreciation, honest beauty, courage and passion, and bliss to marriage.
White Roses-bring to mind purity and innocence, reverence and humility, heavenly and honor, everlasting love, marriages and new beginnings, I am worthy of you, beauty and youthfulness, and remembrance. Pink Roses- harken the meaning of grace and elegance, admiration for beauty and refinement, and sweetness. Yellow Roses - symbolize warmth and happiness, and an ideal symbol for joy and friendship. Orange Roses - Passion and excitement, and an expression of fervent romance, and Lavender Roses traditionally mean love at first sight. -Melinda E.
