The Benefits

“When you’re working with beautiful blooms, there’s no such thing as bad design,” says Meredith Waga Perez, owner of Belle Fleur in New York City. And the more time you spend around artful arrangements, the more your health will benefit.

A Rutgers University study linked flowers with happy emotions and increased intimacy with family and friends, and other research has found that flowers in the workplace heighten creativity and problem-solving skills.

Researchers say that many flowers have pleasing scents, shapes, and colors, which may contribute to our positive reaction to them.

To showcase flowers, Perez advises, “Keep arrangements simple, take your time to design, and follow a few basic rules of color and form.”
