Choosing Valentines day roses- flower bouquet or single rose?
Choosing Valent ines
Day Roses: Flower
Bouquet or Single
Red roses are the classic most romantic
Valentines Day roses. They are one of the
most - if not the most - popular symbols of
love. Millions of red roses are sent every
Valentine's day, but have you ever wondered
whether the message conveyed differs
depending on the number of roses?
It is said that when you give a flower
bouquet of roses, it means you really
really love them. And it is easy enough
to associate a single red rose with
stinginess. While 'many' often leaves a
lasting impression, 'simple' conveys an
elegant statement. A voluminous 100rose flower bouquet looks spectacular
and beautiful, but the beauty of a
single red rose is its simplicity in
expressing oneness, eternal devotion
and sincere love. A single red rose
says "There is no one else but you"
like nothing else.
When we think of a bouquet of roses, it is
customary to think of this as one dozen.
The number 12 is often used to represent
a complete cycle. 12 recurs in the 12
hours of the clock; the 12 signs of the
zodiac; there are normally 12 pairs of
ribs in the human body; the Chinese use
a 12-year-cycle for time-reckoning; in
Judaism, 12 signifies the age a girl
matures; 12 Olympians were the principal
gods of the pantheon in ancient Greek
This significance of the number 12 in the
numerous aspects of nature, religion,
philosophy and mythological traditions
give 12 a universal sacred and mystical
quality that influences the significance
of a dozen roses. A dozen roses adds
richness to the underlying message... of
complete and true love.
Of course, a flower bouquet is not
limited to a dozen. A rose flower
bouquet can be a limitless number
of roses. Before you try impressing
someone, make sure you know the
meaning of the number of roses you
While bigger often means better, red
roses - whatever quantity - will
remain the perfect way to say "I Love
You" during Valentine's Day. No man
can go wrong with this. A single but
elegant long-stemmed rose will be
just as well received as a more
flamboyant flower bouquet; it's the
thought that counts!
