Choosing The Right Flower for Any Occasion

Picking out a flower for a certain occasion can be challenging. You want to find something that expresses your feelings about a person or the situation they are going through a beautiful floral arrangement but aren’t sure which type of flower is best. In fact, roses can be used for many occasions. Most people believe that roses should only be reserved for romance. However, depending on the color a rose can be used for many situations.

Anniversary Flowers

Traditionally, roses are seen or romance flowers. Again, it all depends on the color of the rose in order to match the appropriate tone. Red roses are the obvious symbol of love and romance and are ideal for Valentines Day or any other special day for you and your loved one. Getting an arrangement of red roses will surely put a smile on your partner’s face.

Flowers for Wedding Bouquets

White roses are a very traditional bouquet for weddings. Whether they are the only flower in the bouquet or are mixed in with other types of flowers, they symbolize both unity and purity and will make for a beautiful bouquet.

Celebration Flowers

Mother's Day accounts for one-fourth of the floral purchases made for holidays. About 35 percent of adults bought flowers or plants as gifts for Mother's Day 2015. You can surprise your mother with her favorite colored roses or give her a lively and pretty bouquet of yellow or pink roses that will brighten up the room. 

The same goes for a recent graduate in your family. Make your favorite graduate feel special on their big day by sending graduation flowers to let them know that you are thinking of them. 

Get Well Soon and Sympathy

Roses have been a way to express our deepest emotions to people for decades, including the difficult and sorrowful ones. If you have a friend who has experienced loss, sending them a floral arrangement of muted roses, such as light pink or white, can be an appropriate way to let them know that you are thinking of them during this difficult time. 

With all of the different types of roses to choose from, you’ll always be able to appropriately express exactly how you feel. No matter what color you end up choosing, the recipient will appreciate the thoughtfulness that went into picking a rose bouquet.
