Fresh flowers to chase away the winter blues

The winter months can take quite a toll on our mood and emotional well-being. Not only are the days shorter, but they are also darker and lacking in colour. To help you through this time, or to cheer up a loved on, you should consider sending fresh flowers. If you are not sure what types of flowers are best, here are a few ideas.

Perfect pastels

For those who are feeling stressed or overwhelmed, calming colours like various pastel shades could be just what they need to lift their spirits and soothe their nerves. Pastel bouquets often include a combination of light shades of pink, purple and white. These calming colours paired with a touch of foliage will surely make the recipient feel special and give them something gorgeous to enjoy rather than feeling overwhelmed by the rather grey view outside.

Bright yellows

If you want to make a real statement with fresh flowers, send a bouquet of bright yellow blooms. The best part of all is that there are so many different types of blooms from which you can choose. Roses, sunflowers, tulips, chrysanthemums and carnations are all available in yellow. You can select a single type of flower or send a mixed bouquet that offers plenty of texture as well as brightness.

Romance in the air

If you notice that your partner or spouse is not feeling like their usual self, you can help by letting them know that you love them. Cheer them up with romantic fresh flowers like red roses, tulips or carnations. You don’t have to wait for your anniversary or Valentine’s Day to send romantic bouquets! Surprising them on random occasions is even better because they will not expect it.

Don’t forget to send a special note along with your fresh flowers. Let the recipient know that you care and that you are thinking of them. More often than not, it’s the fact that you let them know you’re thinking of them that is most important of all.
