National Red Rose Day, celebrated every June 12th across the United States, is a special day dedicated to the beauty and symbolic significance of red roses. Known universally as the emblem of love, red roses also convey messages of respect and admiration, making them a perfect gift for various occasions. At Everyday Flowers & Balloons, we take pride in offering an exquisite selection of red rose arrangements that capture the essence of these emotions.

The Symbolism of Red Roses

Red roses are celebrated not only for their stunning beauty and captivating fragrance but also for their deep symbolic meanings. Historically, red roses have held a prominent place in many cultures, symbolizing love, honor, and devotion. This iconic flower’s journey through history highlights its importance and the timeless messages it carries.

Historical Significance of Red Roses

Red roses have been significant symbols since ancient times. In Greek and Roman iconography, the red rose was linked to Aphrodite, or Venus, the goddess of love, who was often depicted adorned with roses around her head, feet, or neck. In the 15th century, red roses were used symbolically in the historical factional conflict known as the Wars of the Roses in England, where they represented the House of Lancaster. By the late 17th century, as breeding roses became more popular, they began to appear in many gardens across Europe, becoming a common element in heraldry and a symbol of nobility and honor.

Symbolic Meanings of Red Roses

Beyond their historical and cultural significance, red roses carry profound meanings. A single red rose is often seen as a symbol of love and devotion, while a bouquet of red roses can represent a deeper, more passionate commitment. Furthermore, red roses are used to convey respect and admiration, making them a versatile choice for expressing a range of emotions from romantic love to sincere respect. They are also a symbol of bravery and a tribute to those who have given their lives for a noble cause, reflecting the rose’s enduring nature as a symbol of life’s cyclical and profound beauty.

Decorating with Red Roses

Red roses have the unique ability to transform any space into a visually striking and emotionally warming environment. Their vibrant color and delicate form can elevate the aesthetic of any room, making them a popular choice for decorators aiming to create an inviting and romantic atmosphere. Here are some detailed tips on how to incorporate red roses into your decor effectively:


Red roses make stunning centerpieces that can capture the attention and hearts of anyone who sees them. For a dramatic effect, consider a large bouquet of red roses arranged in a tall, elegant vase placed at the center of a dining table or a reception area. This setup not only serves as a visual focal point but also spreads the sweet fragrance of fresh roses across the room. For a more minimalist approach, place single blooms in tiny, slender vases along the length of a table or on individual guest tables at a wedding or event. This can add a touch of sophistication without overwhelming the other elements of your decor.

Door Wreaths

A red rose wreath on your front door is a beautiful way to welcome guests with warmth and style. These wreaths can be made entirely of red roses for a lush, abundant look, or mixed with other elements like eucalyptus, small white flowers, or golden twigs to provide contrast and enhance the visual appeal. Suitable for festive occasions or just to beautify your home, a red rose wreath sets a tone of elegance and hospitality right from the doorstep.

Room Accents

Incorporating red roses as room accents can add a romantic and luxurious touch to any space. Scatter red rose petals on tables at a dinner party, wedding, or intimate evening to create a captivating and romantic setting. For more lasting decoration, place garlands of red roses over mirrors, along windowsills, or even as a makeshift headboard in the bedroom. These garlands can be made with fresh roses for special occasions or high-quality artificial roses for more permanent decor. The vibrant red of the roses brings life and color to the room, enhancing its overall mood and ambiance.

Red Roses as Gifts

Choosing the right red rose arrangement can be both a delightful and a daunting task, given the rich variety and deep symbolism each bouquet holds. It’s important to consider the message you wish to convey and select an arrangement that best represents your feelings and suits the occasion. Here’s how to choose the perfect red roses for different expressions of affection:

Romantic Love

Nothing says “I love you” quite like a classic bouquet of long-stem red roses. These roses are universally recognized as a symbol of deep passion and unyielding love. Ideal for anniversaries, Valentine’s Day, or just to remind that special someone of your deep affection, long-stem red roses are the quintessential romantic gift. Their elegant appearance and the way they gracefully stand in a vase convey a message of admiration and devotion that is as enduring as it is beautiful.

Family and Friends

When it comes to expressing love and appreciation for family and friends, a more subtle expression of affection might be preferred. Elegant, wrapped roses offer a simple yet sophisticated option, conveying warmth and familial love without the romantic implications. A small box of red roses can also serve as a thoughtful gift, perfect for saying “thank you,” “congratulations,” or “I’m thinking of you.” These gifts are suitable for occasions like birthdays, Mother’s Day, or as a special gesture to a friend who has been by your side.

Professional and Formal

In professional or formal settings, choosing the right type of floral arrangement is key to maintaining the appropriate tone while still expressing respect and appreciation. Red roses in a sophisticated box convey a sense of respect and admiration, making them suitable for events like corporate anniversaries, farewells, or when honoring a colleague or leader. A standing arrangement of red roses, perhaps mixed with other flowers to soften the strong message of passion typically associated with red, can make a significant impact in more formal settings such as award ceremonies or significant business milestones.
