Take Pride in Flowers!

Take Pride in Flowers!
Yippee! Summer is coming and the Pride Festivals are approaching.  For some a time to reflect on equality, for some a great business opportunity and for some a time to go crazy and have fun.
Whatever your reason, it’s a fantastic opportunity to celebrate life, friendship and love – something we all should do on a regular basis.
Flowers make part of this celebration.  We celebrate every important step of our life with flowers.  The colours, the scent and the shapes make us happy and appreciate the little things in life that may otherwise be missed in our busy lifestyles.
Flower farmers in The Netherlands have been busy with breeding flowers for Centuries to meet the expectations of the people who want them on their table.  The most amazing blooms exist, there’s something to suit the lifestyle of everyone.
We’d like to introduce you some of the quirkier flowers that the Dutch have been creating. 

The Rainbow Rose
This is created by taking a top quality white rose, separating its stem lengthwise and immersing each part into a container with coloured fluid.  This dye is gradually sucked up into the petals which then take on that particular colour.
 
These roses are a fun accessory at Pride festivities or any other events where ‘rainbow’ is the colour theme.  The roses last as long as standard cut-roses.
 
Tip: You can try this at home, too!  It’s a fun experiment for kids of all ages.  Use natural food colours as dye.  You can also use other flowers such as chrysanthemums!
 
 
The ‘chocolate-dipped’ Rose
Yummy!  Well, actually it’s not really chocolate and you can’t eat these roses but they look absolutely scrumptious, don’t you think?
 
These roses are prepared by dipping real roses in a chocolate-lookalike liquid.  This closes the pores of the rose so they ‘preserve’ (to a certain extent).
These roses with toppings are a great treat for special events.  They combine an atmosphere of culinary delight with floral luxury and bling.
 
In the day and age in which we are safe to enjoy all varieties of living in harmony, the rainbow rose receives a special place in people's hearts  .  You can carry this symbol on your heart by means of a buttonhole or corsage, you can hold your head up high with a rainbow rose in your hair or you can wave a royal greeting with a rainbow rose on your hand.  How will you wear your rainbow rose?

The Meaning of Pink Roses

Want to know the meaning of pink roses?
Colour and flowers convey meanings.  They have their own language based partly on emotion but also on how difficult it is perceived to possess a particular flower in order to give it away again.  After all, more emotion is added to something that is difficult to obtain (such as a magnificent pink rose) than to something that grows on the side of road (like the equally beautiful but by no means exquisite pink clover).
As it is, the rose is the acknowledged Queen of the flowers.  Hundreds of years of breeding have gone into this flower to make it available all year round, in all shapes and colours and sizes.  Roses symbolise luxury, love and a whole range of other delightful things, partly depending on their colour.
The pink rose fills a special place in many people’s heart.  Pink is more gentle than the passionate red rose, showing a willingness to compromise and share the joy of life.  The beauty of the pink rose comes lies in the fact that there is no such thing as the ‘standard’ pink rose.  Whether as the long-stem variety with a single elegant bloom or as a spray rose with lots of little glorious blooms , the pink rose never fails to charm.

The pale pink rose is sweet and romantic , it has a touch of innocence about it.  This is why little pink spray roses are a popular choice for weddings.  Multiple little blooms arising from one main stem can be seen as a hopeful anticipation of babies to come.  The pale pink rose can stand for appreciation of the little things in life that are so very important to us.
A stronger shade of pink conveys stronger emotions .  These are ideal ‘thank you’ flowers, showing someone that you care for them.  The beauty of the language of flowers is that you don’t need words to go with them.  The flowers convey your message without you having to actually say anything.
Hot pink roses are more powerful still.  These express a thirst for fun and life.  This isn’t, in fact, exclusive to pink roses, other hot pink flowers convey a similar meaning. 

Sometimes the contrast with other colours is important to the meaning.  Trustworthy green reinforces the symbolism whereas white adds a touch of innocence.  If you want to home in on the fun and bouncy element of the flower then add yellow flowers.  By adding red you’re daring clashing colours to harmonise.
