National Rose Month!

Did you know that  June is national rose month?

In fact, in 1986 President Ronald Reagan signed a resolution making the rose the national floral emblem. As a part of that resolution President Reagan said “Americans have always loved the flowers with which God decorates our land. More often than any other flower, we hold the rose dear as the symbol of life and love and devotion, of beauty and eternity.  For the love of man and woman, for the love of mankind and God, for the love of country, Americans who would speak the language of the heart do so with a rose.”  With that said, Americans have communicated feelings via roses for a number of years. However, did you know that different colors of roses mean different things?  Here are just a few:

Red : Love, Beauty, Courage and Respect

White: Purity and Innocence

Pink : Appreciation, “Thank You” and Admiration

Yellow: Joy, Gladness and Friendship

Yellow with Red Tips: Falling in Love

Orange: Desire, Enthusiasm

Peach: Appreciation, Sincerity and Gratitude, Closing The Deal

Lavender: Love at first sight

Could you imagine showing up to a final business meeting with lavender roses instead of peach roses? That would just be awful.

So once you’ve bought the correct roses, how do you arrange them?
