Mood-Boosting Flower Arrangements
Here are nine fresh and easy tips for decorating with flowers, and why they’re good for our health.
Suit Your Mood

“Sunflowers, asters, and gerbera daisies have an earthy, rustic quality, while roses, calla lilies, and orchids lend themselves to a more formal setting.” Within those constraints, you can also play up the season or match the mood of a gathering.
“For a romantic dinner, consider a classic arrangement of red roses in a shiny black vase,” Soriano says. For an autumn brunch, display a bunch of yellow and orange cockscomb in a mason jar or tin can.
