“A bed of roses” as an idiom originated in England and is quite an old expression. One of the earliest examples can be found in a poem called “The Passionate Shepherd to His Love” written by Christopher Marlowe (also known as Kit Marlowe), published in 1599 after the death of the author.

And a thousand fragrant posies,
A cap of flowers, and a kirtle
Embroidered all with leaves of myrtle
