A yellow rose is a very elegant gesture. As we know, contain a lot of symbolism have meaning according to their color. While earlier blog entries discussed this at leisure, the issue is that the colors of roses have more than one possible interpretation.
Let’s say you have a co-worker that, for lack of better wording, saved your job at the last staff meeting. Maybe this coworker took one for the team, or preformed an all night work session when everyone else abandoned the project. Regardless, this person deserves a little recognition.
Symbolism is important at this point. The problem is that this friend is a member of the opposite sex. Maybe a flower would be a nice touch. Oh, and yes, guys like getting flowers. You want to convey your heartfelt friendship in a meaningful gesture but at the same time not send the kind of signals that would endear you to the office tabloid gossip makers for a month.
Red roses are most definitely out of the question. Even something like a pink rose is still a little too familiar and might seem romantic for this situation. A white rose is something you’d think of at a wedding, not a serious thanks for being a friend type event. The problem is a difficult one.
I draw your attention to the yellow rose. Yellow roses mean friendship. They’re considered a sign of happiness and thanks. It’s the perfect answer to this thorny problem.
You manage to thank your friend in a proper and non-romantic way all the while maintaining the proper symbolism that what they did for you was an important event. It’s definitely a win-win situation.
Of course, the advantage to my yellow rose above is that as a work of art, it will never die. It’s the perfect statement of friendship to hang in an office or at home.
