Pink roses

The history of pink roses begins around 35 million years ago when the first trace of a rose was found in fossils. The cultivation of garden roses originated in China about 5,000 years ago. During the Roman Empire, roses were used as medicine, perfume, and confetti. Toward the end of the 18th century, cultivated roses from China spread to the Western world. Most old roses cultivated before 1867 were in shades of pink, and they were utilized and loved by many.
Empress Josephine Bonaparte, Napoleon’s wife, collected hundreds of roses for her Parisian garden. During the Victorian era, restrictions on socially acceptable communication required people to convey flirtation, love, or even negative emotions through floriography, or the secret language of flowers. Pink roses were used as a sign of warmth and affection during this time.

The meaning of pink roses is gratitude and admiration. They're the perfect choice for the people you appreciate most, like your friends, siblings, or teachers. Pink roses can also represent femininity and elegance, which makes them perfect for events like engagement parties, proms, and baby showers for a baby girl.

Pink roses can convey joy or a sense of happiness that is soft, welcoming, or comforting. For this reason, pink rose arrangements are often exchanged between friends and family members - the blooms are simple expressions that we want another person to be happy with. This might stem from the origins of pink roses as they are the main varietal of roses from which all other modern-day roses were created. Pink roses are also versatile when you have something important to convey.

Since pink roses symbolize gratitude, femininity, and comfort, there are a variety of uses for them. Take a look at the reasons to reach for pink roses for each of these purposes:
