Feeling down? Maybe the winter weather has you depressed, or maybe it’s something else. Maybe you want to create a romantic atmosphere but just aren’t certain how. One easy way of changing the mood (of both yourself and your home) is by getting a nice arrangement of flowers.
Flowers can, as many people have pointed out before, change your mood from sad or depressed to happy. Just seeing flowers, being reminded of why they’re there (as in being reminded of who sent them to us), and smelling them can help change our moods. This is more than just superstition, too—scientists have done studies on the connection between people, flowers, and emotions.
However, flowers can change moods in other ways, too. Take a date, for example. Giving her a long stemmed red rose at the start of a date might change her mood from mildly interested to really interested. The reason rose petals are often shown being scattered on the bed in romantic movies is because roses help set a romantic mood.
Daisies can change the mood of anyone in a room by making it seem much brighter and cheerier. These and other bright flowers can change the mood and atmosphere of an entire room. Likewise, adding flowers to a guest bedroom can make it seem more inviting and welcoming to those who are staying overnight.
Next time you want to change the mood of a room or even of your entire house, don’t forget to involve flowers in your plans. They can work with colors and other decorations to greatly enhance the mood of any area.
