It's Valentine's Week, and love is definitely in the air, waiting for the right opportunity to come by and sweep you off your feet. Even if it isn't, that shouldn't stop you from indulging in a whole lotta love this season, especially since it starts with one of the most beautiful days of the week-long celebrations: Rose Day!
This year, Rose Day falls on February 7, 2018, and it's all about expressing your love and affection by gifting your loved ones with roses, each colour representing a different sentiment.
The red rose, like we all know, is crowned the everlasting symbol of love; yellow is an expression of friendship; white stands for purity and innocence (but mostly used for weddings and funerals, so you may want to avoid this one); pink symbolises grace and worthy of someone you look up to; peach represents modesty and appreciation, for someone you consider graceful and beautiful; lavender is for those who are smitten by the case of 'love at first sight'; and orange is the colour of passion and energy.
Now, we know the kind of devotion we show roses on this day is complete and absolute, but how about we switch things up a little and maybe take a look at some of the other gorgeous flowers that can make a presence in your bouquet this year? It could be for your significant other, your best friend, your mum, your dad, or even for yourself - there's a whole lot of options you can choose from, and they're all drop-dead gorgeous!
