Orange is a fiery shade that is a popular choice in floral arrangements. Because it falls somewhere between red and yellow on the color spectrum, many people often have a strong emotional response to this color. If you know someone whose personality strikes the right balance between energetic creativity and unyielding happiness, or if you have an intense attraction to someone, orange roses are a sure way to make him or her smile.


While the color red is known for evoking feelings of intense passion, the lighter, more delicate shade of pink is symbolic of tender, sweet romance. This makes it a very popular choice for budding relationships. Pink is also a symbol of femininity, grace, maturity, and appreciation, making roses in this soft shade perfect for gender reveals and a wonderful way to say, “Thank you,” to a special female friend or relative.


As the color of the ocean and sky, blue is an ethereal color that is associated with different emotions depending on the shade. Baby blue roses symbolize a playful softness, making it the perfect choice for gender reveal parties. Deep blue evokes confidence and loyalty, and is a wonderful shade to choose for an arrangement that will be delivered to a longtime friend or close business associate.


When you want to send a luxury rose arrangement to commemorate a new beginning, black roses are a beautiful and unique way to inject an element of rebirth, formality, rejuvenation, and sophistication into your greeting.

While black may not be the first choice for many people, this non-traditional rose color is an excellent way of celebrating momentous occasions.
