June is National Rose Month. There are so many colors, hybrids and varieties that choosing the perfect bouquet can be overwhelming. Why not pay homage to days past with a classic cream and white arrangement? White and ivory flowers also happen to be on trend for the 2015 spring and summer season.
Traditionally, the white rose is a symbolized innocence and purity and was a fitting way to say farewell to a friend or to recognize a new beginning. In 14th century England, the white rose was the heraldic sign of The Duke of York who faced off with the Lancaster family, associated with the red rose. This is where the phrase War of the Roses stems from (pun fully intended).
Bask in the beauty of the simple white rose with no color to upstage it.
