A mix of colored roses can convey a unique and meaningful message. A mix of red and white roses represents unity, while a mix of yellow and red roses symbolizes happiness. A bouquet of all colors conveys the message “You mean everything to me.”

A single-stemmed rose says, “I Love You,” while two roses intertwined represent an engagement. Any other single rose means “Thank You.”


Sending the right roses on Valentine’s Day can make your gift even more special. Consider the color, type, and arrangement of the roses you choose to send a powerful message of love and affection. Whether you’re sending a classic bouquet of red roses, or a unique mix of colors, your thoughtfulness, and effort will not go unnoticed.
