“It’s not just for people who are in a relationship, but also for people who just want to give them to people as friends. It’s something more cute than a piece of chocolate,” president senior Tiffany Yung said.
The club chose roses for a variety of reasons, but most importantly because of their symbolism of Valentine’s Day. The history of Valentine’s Day roses comes from an old custom of sending a bouquet of flowers to a person, each flower having its own meaning would allow people to send non-verbal messages.
“I think roses are really a symbol of friendship and Valentine’s Day as a whole,” Yung said.
The money received from selling Valentine’s Day grams will be going to the club’s international project, Room to Read, which provides education in Bangladesh.
