“Sending roses on Valentine’s Day is a classic idea and will always win you points, but make sure that the color of the roses matches your true feelings”, says Eriko Ono.
Red roses are to Valentine’s Day what kisses are to love; they make the occasion that much sweeter. Thanks to their abundant beauty, red roses have long been a Valentine’s Day symbol. And nothing says romance more than a bouquet, whether delivered personally by hand or sent to someone’s office where they can be put on display, admired and envied by co-workers. If you decide to send a floral gift to a place of business, consider adding a vase to your order so that the recipient won’t be stuck finding a vessel to display the roses.
With the market being oversaturated with Freedom roses (the standard rose you see at most grocery stores), it’s hard to see or estimate an end in sight, due to how and why they’re grown. However, think beyond red this year. Valentine’s Day is when we celebrate love, of course, but in the people we love, there is often much more to celebrate. Luckily, for most every feeling and sentiment, there is a color of rose.
