Rose Pink

Rose Pink is a sympathy card featuring a rose pink and white rose set against dark green foliage and text ‘Heartfelt Condolences’

Rose pink sits in the spectrum between the passion of fiery red and the innocence of white roses. The gentle colour associates easily with gratitude and empathy. Therefore, they are a comfort that expresses the nearness that one feels to another person is suffering a loss. After all, while we can feel another person’s grief, we are not suffering it ourselves. So the best thing we can do is to offer an acknowledgement of what the other is feeling, and our support.

Thirty Years Ago In a Card Shop

Picture the scene in a card shop thirty years ago. There you can imagine an assistant telling a customer that a rose pink card was probably suitable for a woman. You can imagine them saying the colour was feminine. Now fast forward (or travel slowly forward if that is your wish) to today. Nowadays we can imagine the card being for a man as much as for a woman. Sure, it is soft and feminine. But then men have a soft and feminine side.

The World Has Come A Long Way

The world, or certainly the Western world, has come a long way in the last two generations. And long may this removal of the rigid constraints of roles continue, at least in the emotional range of people.

So take a breath and take comfort in the beauty of the rose sitting in its bed of dark green foliage. It waits patiently for rain and sun, and accepts them both in the flow of things.
