For people who aren’t knee deep in the weeds of flower symbolism and etiquette, choosing the right flower for a special occasion can be a daunting task. If you’re like us, thousands of questions start racing through your mind: Is this flower appropriate for the occasion? Will it make the right impression? Will it stand out from the rest of the gifts? What meaning will it send? And on and on!
Picking just the right type of flower is tricky. But the good thing for you—and us—is that pink roses exist, and they make choosing a great flower super simple. While they may not be the perfect choice for every occasion, they’re definitely a safe pick for nearly all special moments. So what do pink roses mean, and why are they so great?
The reason is twofold. First off, they are undeniably cute. Really – who in their right mind doesn’t like gazing at a beautiful bouquet of roses, especially if they’re flaunting a beautiful pink facade? And two, pink roses are rich in rose symbolism that is universally endearing and attractive. Plus, I don’t think we have to mention the fact that they are pink and roses.
What Do Pink Roses Mean?
As we said, pink roses are extremely versatile and suitable for almost every occasion. But…pink, in our culture at least, is a symbol of femininity—so getting a beautiful Bouq of pink roses for your guy friend’s birthday probably isn’t the best idea.
Pink roses also symbolize many stereotypical feminine virtues such as sweetness, grace, charm, and elegance. And over the years, pink roses have become known as the “Thank You” flower, due to their reputation as a symbol of gratitude and appreciation.
Pink roses steer a clear path for themselves compared to other rose symbolism. If you buy a bouquet of red roses for a friend, you run the risk of sending the wrong impression, thanks to the inherent intimacy that red roses carry. On the other hand, pink roses have a lot more friendly and innocent vibes to them.
So from simple gestures of gratefulness to highly anticipated occasions, pink roses are versatile enough to do either job—and make a huge statement of your thoughtfulness in the process. That said, here are four of the best occasions to give pink roses!
Pink is the traditional color of Mother’s Day, so—unsurprisingly—pink roses are the all-time favorite gift to give all the amazing moms out there. I mean, what better way to show your appreciation for all their hard work and care than to give them the ultimate “Thank You” flower? They deserve it, after all!
A bouquet of roses is already a great gift for a wife or mother who is celebrating an anniversary, but a pink Bouq is even better. Sure, each anniversary year has its own flower tied to it, but in our humble opinion, that can get a tad predictable. Go bold! Or shall we say, go Pink!
If you were anything like us, your whole room was decked out in hot pink (#noregrets) throughout your teenage years. And while every girl is different, if you’ve got an ultra-feminine lady in your life who always appreciates a flashy, girly gift, a bouquet of pink roses is an excellent choice to show how well you know (and appreciate!) her.
New Baby Girl
Even outside of rose symbolism, baby girls are typically associated with pink. For that reason, pink roses have long been a popular gift for the mothers of newborn baby girls. So if you want to congratulate a mother on bringing a new double-x chromosome life-form into the world and toughing out nine months of pregnancy, then pink roses are the perfect gift.
Of course, like we said before, pink roses are an exceptional choice for nearly every occasion. If you want to get your hands on pink roses for a special occasion or just to hog all to yourself (hey, we’re not judging!), why not grab one of our handcrafted, farm-fresh Bouqs?
