Why do Russians send 11 roses, rather than an even dozen?

0

Russian custom dictates sending an odd number of flowers, except for sympathy arrangements, which must be composed of an even number of flowers. This rule is not strictly followed when you are sending mixed arrangements but is very important when sending bouquets, such as a bouquet of roses. In general, Russian customs do not differ much from the ones in Europe and in America. Send roses when you’re in love, send something bright and festive to help a friend feel better, and white lilies or carnations for a sympathy arrangement. Please do not hesitate tocontact us and we will be happy to assist you in finding a suitable gift for your needs.
