5 Ways To Use Flowers Around The Home

Having a bunch of flowers placed beautifully around your home is an amazing way to add an elegant touch to your space and to add color to your surroundings. Not to mention the invigorating fresh floral scent that welcomes you every time you step into your humble abode. Add to this that fierce weather is far less appalling when you have, in your house, fresh flowers that bloom and give off a sweet fragrance. While some people proudly deem themselves flower experts who know the name of every single plant, how to care for it and what it signifies, other more average folks often find themselves perplexed as to what to do with that huge bouquet of gardenias that their friends picked up for them at the local market!

So, if you usually find yourself in a similar situation, then read below for a list of
practical tips on how to use flowers around your home:

To complement your decoration efforts
Flowers make strong style statements when strategically chosen and placed. Use a vase filled with red roses around your all-wood study room in order to soften it and add some life around the space. Make sure you color coordinate with the furniture, fabrics and overall ambiance in order to get the best results out of your thoroughly curated fresh bouquets.

As a centerpiece on top of the dining table
Contrary to what most people might think, not any kind of flower can be used as a centerpiece in your dining room. Of course, you will be restricted by the kind of climate you live in. If you live somewhere cold like Toronto, Canada, you can find the best flower arrangements from the gurus at that are in season and would best serve your floral needs. According to flower aficionados, flowers placed in a dining room should signify wealth and abundance. This will make your dinner guests feel welcome and eager to dig in!

As an all-natural bug repellent
Marigolds and Lavenders are well known for their insect-repelling properties. The smell of essential oils found in these flowers sends pesky insects away. Steer clear of harmful chemicals and use the power of nature to keep your home a bug-free zone.

As a stress-reliever
Some flowers are famous for their healing powers when used right. Aromatherapy enthusiasts swear by the potency of Eucalyptus flower when placed in your shower room to relieve your stress. It will also help in relaxing your mind and body and prepare you for a good night’s sleep.

As a room freshener
There is no better compliment than your guests telling you how amazing your house smells once they step in, or when you are going for a stroll in the garden with your best friend and she mentions how the smell reminds her of your house! Test out different flowers until you find your signature scent that best matches your personality and you decide is reflective of what your home is all about.

Flower arranging is considered an art for a reason; it takes talent to know how to match flowers together and then place them aesthetically around your home. A great way to learn doing so is to gather your closest friends and join a flower arranging workshop. You will not only spend an amazing time, but also end up with enough knowledge to identify the best ways to use the gorgeous flower bouquets you get sent on your next birthday.
