If there was ever a flower that could speak on your behalf, this is the one. Representing passion and romanticism, the red rose has long been one of the most desired flowers, both to receive and to give to someone you deeply care for. This heartfelt connection is nothing new, in fact, in ancient literature we see the red rose as being cherished by Venus and Aphrodite and the subject of Arabian fables; in history, Queen Cleopatra demanded that her rooms be covered in red rose petals. Roses have an allure unlike any other – and in honor of this connection that many of us have to it, Red Rose Day is celebrated on June 12th.
As June is one of the busiest months for weddings, brides all across Yonkers and White Plains will be celebrating among their floral bouquets and centerpieces. The rose will once again take center stage as white roses are one of the most often selected flowers for bridal arrangements.
The rose (of any color) is also the official birth flower of June, making this month the best month to create a rose bouquet for those you love. If a white or red rose doesn’t send the right message, there is sure to be a rose with a hue and tone perfect for anyone; from soft cream to electric yellow and vibrant pink, each color of rose carries with it special significance and meaning.
Perhaps more than any other flower, the rose can speak the words that we cannot effectively express. This June, let our floral experts at Blossom Flower Shops help you to choose the very best rose for your special occasions.
