It’s the month of hearts once again and we all know what that means: candle lit dinners, chocolates, stuffed animals, and of course, flowers – lots and lots of them! And when we talk about Valentines and flowers, perhaps nothing is as popular as the ever-ubiquitous rose.
As design expert Eriko Ono once said “Sending roses on Valentine’s Day is a classic idea and will always win you points.” Ono, however, quickly pointed out that when giving roses, it is important to pick the right color that “matches your true feelings”.
Besides, you wouldn’t want to say “I’m the one for you” when all you mean is a simple “Thank you”.
So go read this handy guide by ProFlowers.com to make sure that you’re sending the right message.

Let’s start with the most obvious: red roses symbolize romantic love that’s why they’re most appropriate to give if you want to express your love.
#2. White means “I am the one for you”
If you want to go beyond the typical, you may want to give white roses instead which proclaims “I am the one for you.” White means purity and sincerity so it should also be a good choice for your Valentine.

Meanwhile, pink is the perfect pick if you want to thank a friend. Pink represents admiration, appreciation, grace, gratitude, and gentleness, among others.

#8. Peach means “Let’s make this a memorable Valentine’s Day”
Peach is the color of intimacy so if you’re aiming for an unforgettable celebration, this may be a creative way of letting your partner know.
