Be My Friend: Yellow

Perfect for: Platonic pals, co-workers

The message: Joy, friendship, or, "Seriously. Let's just be friends."

The buttercup glow of yellow spreads cheer, safe for just about any happy occasion. But beware that there are some subtle inferences a more literal person might read in to such a sunny deliverance. Yellow is decidedly platonic. In chrysanthemums it even symbolizes "slighted love." To a romantic interest, it could be a clear kiss-off.
