The New Year is approaching rapidly, a time for making healthy changes as we renew and refresh ourselves moving forward. Create a healthier environment for yourself or loved ones by surrounding yourself with gorgeous flowers. The floral experts at Boyd's Flowers can show you why this is not only beautiful and inviting, it's actually good for your well-being.
Flowers boost creativity. Looking at beautiful colors, especially your favorite hues, is known to increase creative thought and ingenuity. Place your favorite colored blooms near your work area to open your mind each day.
Flowers clean the air. Plants and flowers naturally take in toxins in the air that we don't need to breathe. Studies have shown that sitting in a room with flowers or plants nearby can reduce or eliminate headaches, congestion and other cold symptoms. Let a beautiful bouquet of flowers freshen and purify the air you breathe.
Flowers reduce stress. It's been proven that viewing the color green can have a calming affect on people. Let the gorgeous foliage that accents your favorite flowers act as a stress-reducer and find yourself in a calmer frame of mind this new year. Read More about Renew and Refresh for the New Year
As we move into the fall season, it’s time to start thinking about your decorating and entertaining goals this season. Planning a beautiful evening starts with a stunning table, and the design experts at Boyd’s Flowers have some fabulous ideas for your decor this season.
Accent your floral centerpiece with pieces of fall’s natural beauty. Include pine cones, gourds of different shapes and sizes, or acorns and berries for a rustic autumn look.
Scatter candles in all shapes and sizes across your tablescape for lighting that can’t be beat. Tall, short, wide, thin… the possibilities are endless. Use a common color for a more dramatic effect.
Choose a neutral base color that allows you to highlight fall colors across your table. Soothing gray or creamy beige are a great foundation for rusted oranges or spicy plum hues. Read More about Top Tablescapes For Fall
