ChrysanthemumsA bouquet of flowers makes a nice centerpiece and a great gift on special occasions. And don't the colorful rows of flowers at the farmer's market always look so lovely and inviting? And think about it. When you see an extra pretty bouquet, don't you find it hard not to smile? I know I do.
That said, do you pick up a bundle of fresh flowers from time to time, just for your home?
Well, you should and here's why.
If you feel like fresh cut flowers are an indulgence you can't splurge on, think again. Flowers have some wonderful benefits. Think how wonderful flowers make you feel when someone sends you a gift bouquet. Why not feel that goodness more often?
Here are a few reasons of why flowers make a great addition to any part of your home:
- Bright, fresh cut flowers instantly improve your mood. People with fresh flowers in their homes are most likely to feel less worried and feel fewer periods of anxiety or depression. Flowers can also make a positive impact on your mood during a long, cold winter.
- Flowers can easily take the place of boring everyday table decor. Coordinate bouquet colors with your space or place a bright bouquet on a shabby old table to draw the eye and lend to a fresh new look.
- Smell is one of the most powerful senses and can trigger instant memories. A rose’s robust smell can fill a room with just one flower. Choose familiar bouquets that bring back fond memories of growing up in the country, taking a final bow on stage, or even those used on your wedding day.
- Fresh flowers have been shown to stimulate creativity while promoting concentration.
- Adding flowers and fresh plants to your child’s bedroom or play area will brighten the space while also encouraging their growing imagination and responsibility.
Simple honest-to-goodness simple pleasures are never a waste of money. And who of you out there couldn't use a mood lift, some stress relief, a little extra creativity, and better concentration right now today. Try the flower shop for an over-the-counter cure.
