Bright Stunners For Better Health

What’s the best thing you can do for someone who is under the weather? Give them flowers.

Sure, we’re biased here at Casas Adobes Flower Shop, but the research supports us. A 2008 study by the American Society of Horticultural Science found that hospitalized patients who have flowers or a potted plant in their room are less reliant on pain medication and have lower blood pressure overall. Flowers and plants also oxygenate what’s likely an enclosed room, as well as add a dash of nature to an otherwise indoor affair.

Since flowers have such an enormous impact on well being, we say go for the brightest, most cheerful bouquet you can find. A piece like our Bright & Stunning hits all the right notes. Color is certainly covered here, as this pleasing array of yellows, pinks and oranges is nearly impossible not to smile about. But the scale is perfect too, as this is likely an arrangement that will find itself on a bedside table or near a sunny windowsill. 

A simple glass cube reveals a dynamic view of stems, while a swirl of green adds some contrast. Flowers have the ability to communicate so much, and when a person is under the weather, this is one gesture that expresses your consideration and concern. The fact that they also have the ability to lift a person’s spirit and improve well being is a cherry on top.
