The Art Behind Sending Flowers
There's a science to it
It's often said, "Money can't buy us happiness." Yet, we've come to terms with the fact that smaller comforts, such as receiving flowers, can easily change the trajectory of our entire day. In our long-standing tradition, we've accompanied flowers with "I'm sorry's," "I miss you," and "happy birthdays."
But have we ever thought about the why behind the gesture? Why do we attach flowers to moments that mean something to us? How can a simple bouquet of white tulips or blushing pink roses change our entire attitude?
The emotional impact of receiving flowers is evident; they are usually gifted as a surprise and bring about delighted smiles, hugs, and warm feelings of gratitude. To be kindly thought about by another feels like a fond connection, something more of us crave in this fast-paced, digital world.
And now we know that it's scientifically proven that flowers boost our happiness levels, thanks to Jeannette Haviland-Jones, Ph.D., a professor of psychology at Rutgers University and the director of its Human Emotions Lab.
Her studies have shown that flowers offer long-term positive effects, engaging the recipients in more happiness, less anxiety, and a higher sense of satisfaction. Studies also have shown that when we display gifted flowers, we often put them in spaces that are meant to be shared: foyers, dining tables, and living rooms. Not only do we feel a beautiful connection and sense of love when we receive flowers, we often turn around and place them in spaces to welcome others to share in those feelings as well.
Whether it's your significant other, a family member, a friend, or even a business colleague, sending flowers is one of the best ways to show how much you care about them.
This is part of what we do daily at The Hidden Garden. When you start searching for your Valentine's Day arrangement to send, consider that you're not just sending flowers.
The Hidden Garden offers more than luxurious flower arrangements. We offer a chance at connection and true happiness. And what could be a better gift than that?
