To gaze upon a beautiful, brightly colored fresh flower arrangement is to experience pure emotion. Depending on the color of the arrangement or bouquet, the emotion one feels will be slightly different. From the deep passionate red of a rose to the elegant white of a calla lily, to the exuberance concentrated in a bouquet of golden tulips, the color of flowers sends an emotional message. Over the centuries these messages have been written down and exchanged as the symbolic meaning flowers express. Consider these meanings when choosing the next fresh flower bouquet you wish to send so that your flowers communicate exactly what you intend.
