It’s Valentine’s Day and you need to come up with a bundle of gorgeous roses asap but aren’t sure what to get. If you’re like most guys, a dozen red will do but I’ll have you know that you may not want to choose the color so quickly without a little research first. Did you know that a pink tinted flower could send an entirely different message than perhaps roses in the shade of purple? Or how about white petals instead of yellow? It’s true that each color option reveals an individual theme so it’s important to select the one that correctly portrays your feelings. You might think its ridiculous that any woman would ever fall for an impression based solely on the color of a rose but I assure you, it has happened before. Would you want to imply marriage to a girl that you simply wanted to recognize as a good friend? How about giving the intention of affection when you really wanted to send your condolences? I’m telling you, this is a crucial step in choosing the proper Valentine’s Day roses for your sweetheart. Here is an easy to follow guide that outlines the shade and meaning of each variety of rose available to you this holiday.
