What is it about Spring that makes me want to run out and buy flowers? I mean, it’s not like our winters here in Northern California are particularly harsh or grey…well maybe grey, but also emerald green. Never the less, every spring I want to fill my garden with blooms, and place them all over my house! They simply make me happy. Flowers can be:
- as elaborate as a banquet arrangement
- multiple arrangements in one room
- a simple as a single bud in a vase
- or a floating flower in an exquisite bowl
- they can be expensive arrangements from the top florists
- or a $1.99 bunch of daffodils from the supermarket and placed in individual vases all over the house
- and if you live in NYC? Even better, there are flowers stalls on every corner and in every deli!
And…did you know that the different colors of flowers mean different things? As an example, Orange flowers are warm. Orange mixes the passion of red with the unbridled happiness of yellow. Whether spreading their zest through their own bouquet or else spicing up an assorted bunch, orange flowers are vibrant and vibrancy is fun. Of course there is also the Language of Flowers. You can send your heart through a bouquet if the receiver knows how to read them! And of course, your favorites can say a lot about you. I particularly love Peonies, which mean aphrodisiac (hmmmmmmm….) and sunflowers which signify loyalty and wishes (ok)!
Bringing flowers into your home add a bit of life to a room, a pop of color, texture and sometimes, even a great scent. They can be mixed or matched it doesn’t really matter. They just seem to welcome you into your space. Flowers are Little Bits of Beauty™ that uplift you everyday. They add a freshness and an Energtics to Space™ that just makes you feel good. So I say, buy yourself some flowers, in fact, send yourself flowers once a month! After all, you’re worth it!
