Say it with Flowers: Using Color to Express Your Sentiment

Flowers have long been a great way to express yourself when words fail you. These natural symbols have become synonymous with different occasions or ways we want to tell others about how we feel. With those flowers, the power of color within those flowers furthers those sentiments.


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


Orange is the color of joy and happiness with the sense of warmth shining through. These are great for birthdays, celebrations, get-well sentiments and just-because moments. Orange tulips are always a great choice.


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.


As a calming color they are often used to represent trust, sympathy, or wishes for better health. One of the most beautiful blue flowers is hydrangea.c4


Purple symbolizes grace, elegance, regality and refinement as well as romance, mystery, and creativity. There are numerous kinds of purple flowers that you can use to send messages for birthdays, congratulations, and love.


White represents purity and innocence as well as perfection and honesty. White carnations, roses, daisies, orchids and calla lilies work well for bridal showers and weddings, anniversaries, and often for funerals or sympathy messages.

Mixed Colors

Celebrating Atlanta Teachers

C1Teachers are some of the hardest working individuals and never seem to get enough credit for what they do to teach and train our children often for a larger part of the day then we, as parents, get with them.

That time of the year to show them “official” appreciation for all they do is just around the corner on May 2nd to May 6th with Teacher Appreciation Day on Tuesday, May 3rd.

We’re here to help you plan the best floral gifts to get for your kids’ teachers.C2

Whether you come in and pick up a flower arrangement or bouquet or you have them sent directly to school, here are some ideas to consider for Teacher Appreciation Week and Teacher Appreciation Day:

  • The Thinking of You Bouquet is a cheerful floral mix of roses, orchids, and hydrangea in a keepsake vase.

Whatever you decide to gift your children’s teachers with, make sure that you include a personal note that lets them know just how much their efforts mean to you. This personal connection often makes the best gift for teachers who work so tirelessly to help kids learn.

You can order your teacher gifts by phone, in our Atlanta flower shop, or online through our website.C5
