Why pink? I’ve been looking through my Pinterest boards and discovered that I have 136 pins of pink flowers and pink isn’t even my favorite colour!
If red roses are a symbol of love – then what do pink roses symbolise? Apparently you should choose deep pink to show appreciation and as a thank you. Mid-pink for congratulations or to cheer up a friend going through a rough patch whether due to illness or grief and light pink roses to express your gentleness and appreciation. I’m not sure whether these meanings translate to other flowers (but I like to think they do).
One of the best bits about my job is that I get to buy flowers all the time. Sometimes I leave my samples behind for the visitors at the venues I teach at to enjoy. Other days I bring them home or gift them to friends. This week it’s been a riot of pink.
I’d love to hear about your favourite coloured flowers and whether you’ve ever thought about the secret messages your flowers are keeping.
