When it comes to decorating your home with flower diamond paintings, some people love the classic roses, while others prefer sunflowers or peonies. We all have flowers that we’re drawn to, but do you know what your floral favorites actually symbolize?
Here’s what some of your favorite popular flowers really mean and what they each say about your personality. Let's explore together!
Roses can have several different meanings depending on their color. Red roses symbolize love and desire while pink roses mean grace, happiness and gentleness; white roses mean purity, innocence; yellow roses symbolize new beginnings, joy and friendship; orange roses symbolize desire and enthusiasm.
What they say about you: You almost always think with your heart. You're aesthetic, classic, timeless and never going out of style. You know how to make a statement and make it seem effortless.
Sunflowers symbolize adoration, loyalty and longevity. Much of the meaning of sunflowers stems from its namesake, the sun itself. So, they are known for being “happy” flowers, making them the perfect gift to bring joy to someone on special days.
Peonies have several different meanings. While white peonies symbolize bashfulness and compassion, pink peonies represent good luck and prosperity. Red peonies symbolize love, passion, honor and respect.
What they say about you: You’re a positive person who’s always looking ahead at the future. You’re thoughtful and empathetic towards others. Your style? Bold, bright and elegant, but not overbearing.
In general, lilies symbolize purity and refined beauty, though their meanings also change depending on their color and type. White lilies symbolize modesty and virginity, yellow lilies represent gaiety or cheerfulness, and orange lilies symbolize passion.
What they say about you: You're a happy, impassioned hard worker, and you're not afraid to be proud of your accomplishments. Your style is always perfectly tailored, and you know how to stand out in a crowd.
Tulips can also have different meanings depending on their color. Overall, tulips are usually accepted to symbolize perfect or true love, and fame. Red tulips are considered a declaration of love, while yellow tulips are said to mean “sunshine in your smile.” Purple tulips symbolize royalty, and white tulips symbolize worthiness and forgiveness.
What they say about you: You’re thoughtful and confident and your personal style changes a lot based on your mood, but is somehow always sleek and coordinated.
The origin of the word daisy is actually a perfect descriptor for the flower—it comes from an Old English word that means “day’s eye.” Daisies represent innocence, hope and purity. Gerbera daisies, which come in bright colors, aptly signify cheerfulness.
What they say about you: You're an optimist who can find the good in any bad situations, and you're probably a morning person, too. You always know what to say to make people smile.
