Using Flowers to Destress Your Holidays

Keep everyone relaxed around the holidays with bright flowers

Holiday Flowers


Forget wine, and use flowers to take the edge off this year.

Do you know that fresh flowers have a positive effect on one’s emotional well-being?

I have seen scientific research that confirms that flowers have an impact on happiness, well-being, and mood.

The presence of flowers lessens worrying, anxiety, stress, and depression, and it increases energy, happiness, enthusiasm, confidence, and even compassion. Flowers gracing a holiday table and other special social gatherings are not merely decoration, but they set the mood, and they can affect social behavior in a positive manner.

When choosing holiday arrangements, vibrant colors for the season are invigorating, uplifting, and joyous, whereas, a softer palette imparts relaxation and a calm effect. You may prefer a centerpiece for the table or accent pieces to enhance your home.

Bright flowers can change the mood of any evening.

Flowers work similarly to the human vascular system. Plants also contain vascular tissues, known as the xylem and the phloem, which transports water and minerals up from the roots to the leaves. This is where photosynthesis takes place, which converts the nutrients into minerals to nourish the plant and flowers.

So you can see the effectiveness, consider single flowers in individual vases that can be placed at each setting for your guests.

A centerpiece or place arrangement should be placed carefully in strategic and obvious locations so that all who attend your holiday gathering will see the beauty of flowers spreading relaxation.

Whether you select rustic, traditional, or modern, you will give your family and friends a higher sense of enjoyment and satisfaction when you enhance your table and home with flowers.
