Say it with Flowers: Using Color to Express Your Sentiment

Red has always been associated with romantic love, desire, and seduction. This is because it’s the closest way to symbolize the heart and a great way to show your love to a special someone. Red roses, tulips, and carnations are often used.C2

Pink represents innocence and playfulness with some sense of love as well as femininity. These are great for new additions to the family, birthdays, anniversaries and love. Some favorite pink flowers include carnations, roses, and chrysanthemums.


Synonymous with friendship, yellow flowers also symbolize compassion, trust, and respect. They are often used for workplace and friendship occasions. Some favorite yellow flowers include tulips, roses, daffodils, lilacs and chrysanthemums.C2


Green represents nature and also good fortune as well as harmony and balance. Some great examples of green flowers are the calla lily and hydrangea. It’s a good choice when sending a get-well bouquet.

What Type of Flower is Appropriate for What Occasion?

march17c1Flowers have always offered a lot of meaning with different varieties symbolizing various feelings. Since many flowers do carry so much symbolism, it is important to consider these meanings when planning to include them in a special occasion like a holiday, event, or party. Here we have put together some of the most common flowers, their meanings and where they might be used.

Weddings and Anniversaries

Seasonal flowers work best for weddings as these tend to coordinate well with the theme of the wedding and the season when it is held. For weddings and anniversaries, it does not necessarily matter what type of flower you use; just make sure it is something that fits your personal style and taste. Of course, roses always represent love and are traditionally a favorite anniversary flower arrangement.jan12c2


The poinsettia is traditionally seen at Christmas as is the amaryllis and the Christmas cactus. You will also see red berries and many red and white flower combinations.


Most often seen at Easter are the calla lily as well as other white flowers, including white roses and carnations.


Thanksgiving brings a bounty of fall flowers in rich, deep hues, including roses, carnations, alstromeria, lilies, monte casino, marigolds, gerbera daisies, chrysanthemums and wheat.zoom_zoomHappyHolidays1310154444913120264744  jl
