Do you need to right a wrong? There is no better way to apologise than with flowers. Choosing their favourite species and colour is your best bet when deciding on an arrangement, but if you want to go one step further, pick flowers that specifically symbolise remorse.
Flowers for Forgiveness
The colour white is commonly associated with purity which in reflection symbolises pure intentions. Also, if you wish to start over with someone, you can use white tulips to gesture a fresh start in a beautifully meaningful way. Such an elegant flower, you only need a simple bunch and a personalised card to express your apology.
Similar to white tulips, white lilies are an ideal choice for sympathy flowers. Dainty and delicate, they should be treated with care much like your friendships, especially after a misunderstanding. By pairing lilies with brighter blooms, you can brighten the mood and suggest a vibrant refresh along with your apology.
Following a theme of white, white orchids are well-known to symbolise sincerity, love and care. They are the perfect bloom to express the love and care you have for a family member or best friend, alongside the sincerity of your apology. Also, they should be handled with care and well looked after just like a relationship – if you treat them well, they will last forever.
The official peacemaker is the blue hyacinth, so if you want to extend an olive branch after a misunderstanding, a bouquet of these flowers is perfect. Forgiveness is near enough guaranteed with hyacinths as they are the best way to offer a truce and to express your yearning for peace.
Different colour roses have different meanings behind them, so for saying ‘I’m Sorry’, the best colours are Red or Yellow. Red roses are more suited to apologising to your other half, expressing your love and affection for them. Yellow roses are better for apologising to friends as they symbolise friendship and innocence. Why not apologise with Magic Roses so your heartfelt message is appreciated for longer?
