The New Year is upon us, and it's a great time to start thinking about small changes we can make to improve ourselves for a healthy, happy new year. This year, City Line Florist suggests including flowers in your daily life as a means of promoting good health and happiness. Here's why:
Flowers help you breathe well. Because plants and flowers are natural air purifiers, having them in your home or office will cleanse the air as they absorb impurities and toxins, leaving you breathing easy.
Flowers help you stress less. Gazing at the color green has been proven to reduce stress, so placing a beautiful bouquet of fragrant flowers with leafy green foliage near you while you work could truly create a calm, peaceful atmosphere for you.
Flowers help you think creatively. Being surrounded by bright, lovely colors is known to improve creative thinking. Start placing blooms in your favorite hues in places where you do your best thinking and find yourself thinking outside the box. Read More about Healthy, Happy New Year
Fall has arrived and that means plenty of opportunities to celebrate this gorgeous season. The design experts at City Line Florist are ready with tips to help you create tablescapes perfect for autumn that you and your guests will enjoy all season.
Contrast formal dinnerware with a rustic centerpiece to create a peaceful balance at your table. Gorgeous white china, classic flatware and thin stemware pair beautifully with bright pumpkins, acorns and pine cones in natural colors.
Use winding tree branches, curly willow or hypericum berries instead of a table runner down the center of your table. Add a few metallic accents like shiny silver stemware or candlesticks for balance.
Instead of a formal dinner, serve food from a buffet table. Add fall leaves, bark-lined cake stands and scattered fall flowers for a natural fall look. Read More about Decorate Your Table For The Season
