A Guide toPink Roses
We’ve all heard the saying ‘pretty in pink.’ We certainly agree with that statement when it comes to one of our favourite flowers in this colour – the rose. After all, pink conjures up all sorts of images from new born babies to young love and all things delicate.
But before you get carried away and think this colour is only about sweetness, it’s not. In fact, there is a whole palette of pink roses in every shade imaginable and each one has its own meaning.
So, be prepared to be tickled pink as we walk you through the wonderful world of pink roses.
Pink Roses Meaning
Have we got your attention with these flowers? Before you hunt out a present of pink roses, you’re going to need to be armed with some information on what they mean.
With a bloom in such soft tones, of course you can’t escape the fact that this one is about love. But, unlike their darker, red cousins which are all about passion, a rose in light pink takes a more playful approach to a love story. When giving a pink rose to a loved one, think of it more as an expression of admiration for that person.
Need another good reason to give a bouquet of pink roses? Overall, these flowers stand for grace, elegance and femininity. But, just as the colours of this flower are versatile, so are the reasons for giving some. Pick a bunch in a light pink and it tells a story of innocence and happiness. However, if you were to take it up a shade and go for the mid tones then it’s all about gratitude or saying congratulations. Go for the darkest shades with a magenta and it’s all about showing recognition and saying thank you.

The Best Occasion To Give Pink Roses
So, when and where should you give pink roses?
When it comes to matters of the heart, a pink rose says it all. The first obvious choice has to be in a bridal bouquet. What could be more perfect than some playful mid-pink roses offset with some cream roses, pink peony and white alstroemeria. The perfect way to show your love on your big day.
It doesn’t stop there either. The number of pink roses you add to your bouquet also means different things. Go for a single rose (which means love at first sight), a trio of stems (they say I love you) or even a bunch of six (which says I want to be yours) and it’s an incredibly fun way of showing your emotions. A great choice if you haven’t been together that long. Go for two or four blooms and you’re declaring a deep love where nothing will stand between the two of you.
Gratitude is the name of the game with pink roses. These blooms just shout appreciation. Maybe you need to show your mum just how important she is or has your partner done something amazing for you? Go for a bouquet in some warming magenta tones and you’re saying one big thank you for being, well let's be honest, absolutely wonderful.
Last but not least, don’t forget that special friend in your life. Give them a bouquet of six, mid pink roses and you’re showing your gratitude while the number of blooms also represents just how much you care for them. Then add in thirteen pale pink blooms and it's all about happiness and friends forever. You only need to mix in some cream freesias and, you finish off the sentiment by saying you trust them. What could be better when words can’t quite capture it all.
Next time you’re picking your bouquet, don’t forget to pop in a few pink roses. These gorgeous flowers will not only deliver all the looks, but they’re sending out a whole lot of love too.
