Flower Therapy: Nurturing Palette PDF Print E-mail
Nurturing FlowersA true sense of caring is created by a combination of colors that are fragile, soft and tender. Arrangements in pastel shades and the softest yellows, peaches, warm pinks, creamy whites and subtle greens make us feel safe, snug and loved. Consider a nurturing floral arrangement for a new mother, a sick friend or a grieving loved one – anyone who would benefit from a caring, loving embrace.

Flowers Featured: A string of smilax cradles apricot roses, creamy yellow tulips, pale green carnations, chartreuse viburnum, soft yellow freesia, lavender waxflower and heather. This garden-style arrangement rests in a white-wash willow basket. The casual grouping of flowers duplicates nature similar to how flowers grow together.

Below are a few flower recommendations for each of the Nurturing palette colors. Call or visit a professional florist for even more flower options.

Florists have always known that flowers make people happy, and now scientific research proves flower power. Aboutflowers.com highlights university research proving the emotional and behavioral benefits of flowers and plants. Rutgers research shows that the presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive manner far beyond what is normally believed. Another Rutgers study demonstrates that flowers ease depression, inspire social networking and refresh memory as we age. A Harvard study reveals that people feel more compassionate toward others, have less worry and anxiety, and feel less depressed when fresh cut flowers are present in the home. And a Texas A&M study demonstrates that workers' idea generation, creative performance and problem-solving skills improve substantially in workplace environments that include flowers and plants.
