‘Oh the roses are so lovely – thank you so much my dear, but why fifteen?’ the girl asks. ‘Huh? Hmm – well I just thought the bouquet looked nice with fifteen.’

You may not know it but the number and colour of the roses you send has meaning. Do you know that 11 roses says you are my special one - the one I love most in my life, but 15 roses says I am very sorry, please forgive me. Did that boy know he was apologising for something when he sent his loved one fifteen? His message of love for his girlfriend became a message saying sorry.

So, before you send someone special a bouquet of roses make sure you know the message you are sending.


Meaning of the Colour

Red - passion, also true love and respect: says I love you.

Pink - the rose of beautiful thoughts, and saying thank you.

Yellow - show your friendship by sending these to put a smile in someone’s day.

White - pure love: used as the traditional flower during weddings to show happy love.
 
Purple - to send the message of your love at first sight with special someone.
 
Orange - an excellent choice for a new relationship or business partnership that you wish to continue.


Meaning of the Number

1 - Love at the first sight, you are the one
2 - Shared love between two people
3 - I love you
6 - I want to be yours
7 - I'm obsessed with you
9 - Love forever, together as long as we live
10 - You are perfect
11 - You are the one I love most in my life
12 – I want you to be special
13 - Secret admirer
15 - I am truly sorry, please forgive me
20 - Believe me, I am sincere towards you
21 - I want only you
24 - I can't stop thinking about you, 24 hours everyday
99 - I will love you for as long as I live
100 - Together till we are very old 
108 - Please marry me
365 - Can't stop thinking about you everyday
999 - Everlasting love 
 
So why not send some roses to your special one today. Wouldn’t it make them very happy to receive a bouquet of roses in the middle of a boring day at work?

Warm wishes
