Fun Flower Facts
What are the best floral designs and colors for men?
Men are stimulated by color and are visually oriented. Research shows that men prefer vivid colors such as yellow, orange and red. Flower arrangements that are contemporary, linear styles or natural styles are best. Other favorites might include green or flowering plants. Be sure to tell us that you want flowers for a man and ask for specific suggestions. If your recipient has a hobby, perhaps you could highlight that. For example, if he is a golfer, tuck in a box of golf balls. If he is into cars, add an auto magazine or two. We can always offer creative suggestions for flowers that are sure to please.
I heard that flowers are good for your health. Is that true?
According to recent behavioral research conducted at Rutgers University, 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. Common sense tells us that flowers make us happy, said Dr. Jeanette Haviland-Jones, lead researcher on the study. Now, science shows that not only do flowers make us happier than we know, they have strong positive effects on our emotional well being.
