Meaning Behind Number of Roses in a Bouquet


Red roses are arguably the most sought after flowers on Valentine’s Day. What’s not to love, the charm of the rose is in its fragrant and delicate petals. The red rose also symbolises romance, love, beauty, and courage. However, a flower’s meaning is no longer specific to its colour and type alone but also the number of flowers you choose.
