Hot pink roses are perfect for the type of relationship where you've
known each other for a while and are ready to gently move toward something
more serious, without being overly passionate too early. They're not
as "full-on" as the romantic red roses, but can give an inoffensive hint
of heading in that direction, without the risk of harming a good frienship.
If your partner or intended one isn't interested in advancing to the next
stage of a relationship, you've always got the protection of the fact that
these roses are, after all, still just pink and not the glaringly obvious
romantic red, and if the fact that they're hot pink roses is
questioned (rather than paler pink) you can always say that they were simply
the better looking of all the pink roses you could find, and you thought
that your friend deserved the best.
In the language of roses, their meaning is very much similar to that
symbolized by their lighter cousins, the pale pink roses. You may
therefore be asking: What do pink roses stand for? Traditional rose
symbolism says that pink roses in general signify appreciation and admiration
of a person. They are a sign of happiness and also are given as a
Thank You gift. Conversely they can be used to symbolize sympathy,
but pale pink roses are probably
better to demonstrate sympathy than these hotter pink flowers.
An ideal example of effectively using these rose types would be on your
girlfriend's (or good friend's) passing of exams, a driving test or some
similar occasion. These are most certainly joyous events, so the
symbolic happy significance of pink roses would fit perfectly.
Flowers can be the best gifts for a birthday of someone special too,
and hot pink roses can aid you in expressing your happiness for the day.
At the same time they give a way of showing your gratitude for a good
friendship, and your admiration for the recipient without the pressure
that red roses would give.
