A 2008 study by American Society for Horticultural Science found that hospitalized patients who had flowers or potted plants in their rooms used less pain medication and had lower blood pressure overall than their flower-less counterparts. We here at Stadium Flowers aren’t surprised; the healing properties of flowers have long been celebrated, from using them medicinally to extracting their essences for therapeutic purposes.
Get well flowers are a great way to make someone feel cared for as they endure cold and flu season, and it turns out, they just might help heal them, too.
We of course favor a bright and cheerful display of blooms for a get well gift – there’s really nothing better than receiving something that is undeniably happy like our Sophia piece. This is also the perfect scale to keep at a bedside table or other bedroom area where it can best be enjoyed by someone who is likely bed, couch or hospital bound.
Tied off with a sweet purple bow, this lush and yet modest grouping will go a long way toward making someone feel better. Aside from being visually appealing – an important consideration, given that hospitals at least are usually pretty bleak – it adds fragrance and life to a space. Flowers can communicate a sense of hope and optimism; make sure your get well bouquet expresses that and more.
