How to Give a Single Rose

How to Give a Single Rose. It's Valentine's Day or your honey's anniversary and you want to give her something special. You know she loves flowers, specifically roses. So you drive to the flower store and are now staring at huge bouquets of roses or perfect single roses. While you care about your partner, money is a factor and you're wondering if you can get away with giving her a single rose.

Learn about the colors of flowers. A red rose signifies romantic, passionate love. Yellow usually signifies friendship, while orange may indicate a secret love. White is for apologies and in the past showed purity and innocence. Black is for ending a relationship.

Choose the single rose carefully. Smell all your options. Look at the petals for signs of fading, browning or simple imbalance. Find the most perfect single red rose and your partner will know how much time and energy you spent on them.

Attach a note to the rose. It doesn't have to rhyme or be cute. Just express what you feel for the other person. In a pinch, a simple "I love you" will work wonders, especially if it's the first time you're saying it. Some companies will even write a special message on the rose for you.

Figure out how you want to present it. Handing it to her is one way, especially with a kiss. Another is to put it someplace where she'll find it either with you nearby or when you're away. If you have keys to her house, hide the rose where she'll find it easily or put it on her windshield. If you're taking her out, put it on her car seat or leave it on the chair she sits in at dinner.
