We call them get well flowers, but Blossom Flower Shops thinks it would be more apt to consider them “health promoters.” In study after study, floral arrangements and potted plants have been shown to have serious benefits on people who are under the weather or in the hospital. The impacts range from helping to lower blood pressure and decrease the reliance on pain medication to oxygenating an enclosed space and boosting morale. People who receive flowers when they’re ailing are more likely to be in contact with friends and family, and we all know that maintaining healthy relationships certainly impacts our well being.
While we love a bright bouquet given as a get well gift, we find that a soft-looking design composed of delicate roses in pastel hues is equally well-received. Sometimes bolder colors can be off-putting for someone who isn’t feeling well, whereas a more neutral palette seems light and airy. Our Juliette is a good example of this.
Set off by a tangle of ivy, the blooms and greens together make a beautiful pairing and introduce some nature and life into what’s likely a bedroom space. We love the scale of this too, as it’s just the right size to install on a bedside table or near a windowsill, where its delicate layers can be shown off to maximum effect.
