The Benefits of Having Fresh Flowers in the Home

Here comes the sun! To celebrate the arrival of spring on March 20th, Organic Bouquet has laid out some of the benefits of having flowers in your home. From brightening up a room to livening up your mood, floral arrangements can be a great way to shake off the winter blues and start thinking Spring.

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 easily take the place of boring everyday table décor. 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 as well as their growing imagination, while also encouraging responsibility.

Flowers bring positive emotional feelings to those who enter a room. Place flowers in places visitors see, such as the foyer, living room and dining room. Flowers make the space more welcoming and create a sharing atmosphere.

Celebrate the change of seasons with flower bouquets. Fresh cut flowers can add a seasonal touch to any room, without having to spend money on re-decorating.

Each purchase from Organic Bouquet helps to improve the life of a flower farm worker, their family and the local community by providing workers in underdeveloped countries everything from zero-interest loans, childcare, healthcare, education, environmental protection, supplies, and more. They are also a carbon neutral company, partnered with CarbonFund.org in a carbon offset program supporting re-forestation projects in Guatemala.
