Pastels are perfect for letting someone know you adore them. In more of a whisper, than a shout, pastels express your feelings in a more intimate, personal manner that’s way more sexy! When thinking about sending someone special in your life flowers, don’t overlook the quiet, yet stunning pastel.
Pastels are usually thought of as a “spring only” flower, but they are actually available all year round. Why are pastels so popular in springtime? Because they are a gentle reminder of the change from winter to summer. The softer colors also symbolize new birth and regeneration. Pretty pastels are undoubtedly uplifting and cheerful in a calm and gentle way. There’s also optimism associated with the light blues, pinks, yellows, peaches, and lavender we see at this time.
