Red is always in style, most people love the red color and let's face it, a bouquet of beautiful red roses can symbolize lots of great things to people. I say you'll never go wrong with a dozen or so red roses, especially when it comes to love and Valentine's Day

Do You Love Giving Or Receiving Roses?
"Can anyone remember love? It's like trying to summon up the smell of roses in a cellar. You might see a rose, but never the perfume."
Pink roses come in a variety of shades and hues. In fact, they appear to be some of the oldest roses in existence. Even artists of the times gone by have mostly painted pink roses before any other kind.
They have a few different meanings, depending on their shade. Darker ones symbolize appreciation and admiration. Regular pink also means Thank You, gentleness, while lighter shades of pink have an aura of poetic elegance, budding romance and platonic love.
Yellow roses are given as a symbol of joy, happiness, friendship, the promise of new beginnings. Yellow is a very positive color that changes the negative mood to positive very quickly. Yellow roses overall are really uplifting and pretty with their bright, sunny shades that never fail to bring a smile to anyone's lips.
If you have a really good friend, one that you call a true friend, she is the one to give yellow roses to.
Yellow Roses With Red Tip
In general yellow roses with red tips mean new love, falling in love, a budding love, a fresh romance (maybe first love?).
It is when a platonic relationship changes to something else, something sparkly and exciting. Not yet full blown passion, but the hint of something great to come

Orange roses are clear indicators that passion, desire and enthusiasm are in play. This is the next stage after the new romance phase. Here you are allowed to show your passion and your romantic side.
It's not yet a full blown love (hence the roses are orange, not red), but things are slowly getting there. Orange roses bridge the gab between yellow (friendship) and red (love, full blown romance)
White roses symbolize purity, clarity, new beginnings, innocence, humility, something heavenly.
Because of this, white roses are mostly given for weddings and in general for new beginnings, such as engagements. In many countries white roses are also given as remembrance, or placed on the memorials of lovely departed ones. However this doesn't make the white rose a sad one. On the contrary: white is uplifting and should be given on as many occasions as possible
