Writing Contest: Why are Flowers Romantic?

We held a writing contest for students at a local Jr. High where we asked them the question, “Why are Flowers Romantic?” The following essay was written by our first place winner, ninth-grader Courtney Smith! 

Why are Flowers Romantic?

Flames of PassionBring on the HappyCharismatic Crimson

Flowers can be used for many different things. They can be used to show sympathy, admiration or just that someone is thinking of you. A large part of the time though, flowers are used in romantic scenarios. For instance, the roses between a couple at a candle-lit dinner for two or the flower petals strewn along the aisle for a bride to follow to her waiting, starstruck lover. Flowers are given on dates, proms and dances, anniversaries and countless other events. They’re exchanged between couples so often because they show an effort of affection, that a person wants to go out of their way to impress you, to show you that they were thinking of you and are interested in you.

Often, flowers even have different meanings. Roses are often thought of and associated with passion while other flowers such as tulips or sunflowers are associated with a more sweet and innocent love. They might be given on a first date between teenagers or used to ask a high school crush to prom. When flowers are given, it just seems as though a person is going the extra mile to show you how they feel about you and that the kind gesture was well worth the money and time spent getting the flowers for you.

Whether they are wildflowers growing on the side of the road or roses grown in a nursery, they are a great way to show a person that you want to see them happy and put a smile on their face. Flowers can be used to show many emotions and feelings, but probably the most common emotion expressed with flowers is love or romance.

In conclusion, flowers are romantic because they are a way of showing affection, effort and meaning in a relationship. No matter the kind, reason behind the exchange or the response, flowers are a wonderful way to show how you feel, even if you can’t find the words to express it.

Thank you, Courtney! Great Job!
