The Best Flowers to Buy for Breast Cancer Awareness

For more than 20 years, October has been recognized as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Flowers are one of the best ways to honor the women affected by this disease or show your support in the fight against breast cancer. Not just any flowers will do either! Pink is the international color of breast cancer awareness, which means you’ll need to look for blooms of this shade to offer your moral support. Central Square Florist can offer you a variety of pink flowers that will help you raise awareness or brighten the day of someone who has suffered with this disease.

Stargazer Lilies

Stargazers are perhaps the most poignant flower to show your support for breast cancer awareness. These large pink and white blooms represent a variety of things, including perfection and purity. The name “Stargazer” was given to these flowers because they point towards the sky. For that reason, stargazer lilies also symbolize hope, optimism and the fulfillment of dreams.

Shop Pink Flowers & Gifts

To raise awareness with stargazer lilies, try either our “Simply Stargazer” arrangement or the “Pink Lily” bouquet. Our “Scents of Spring” arrangement, with stargazers, pink roses, peonies and orchids, makes an extra-special gift for someone who has been affected by breast cancer.

Pink Roses

Long associated with love and admiration, pink roses have a few other meanings that makes them a wonderful flower for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. These blushing blooms speak of sentimentality, gratitude and appreciation. Give pink roses to show that you honor and appreciate those who have suffered from breast cancer.

A huge bouquet of 24 long stem pin roses is a great way to show how much you care. You can also try “Simple Perfection.” With pure white lilies and pink roses, this arrangement makes a thoughtful gift.

Pink Carnations

Pink carnations, with their delicate scent and ruffled petals, are another wonderful flower for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The language of flowers, which dates back to the Victorian Era, says that these flowers represent a mother’s love. With that meaning, pink carnations are often sent as a way to say “I will always be there for you.” The message behind these flowers makes them an ideal way to show your love and support of someone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Whether you’re looking for a meaningful gift or a way to raise awareness during the month of October, we have a variety of flowers that will send the right message. We can also create gorgeous custom arrangements your breast cancer fundraisers and events. Whatever your floral needs, Central Square Florist is proud to help you show your solidarity against this disease.
