Add some colour to your desk!

A vibrant, scented and flourishing bouquet is a great way to add a bit of character to your workplace!

First Impression Flowers

First impressions are everything, and so adding a couple of warm and welcoming bouquets to your reception, lobby or waiting room can be a great way to welcome any visitors or customers you may encounter throughout the day. Creating a positive atmosphere upon entrance to any reception, office or shop is paramount; and the addition of a fresh bouquet is bound to improve the whole feel of the room no end. It has in fact been scientifically proven that flowers bring about positive emotional feelings in those who enter a room. They make the space more welcoming and create a sharing atmosphere (Dr. Haviland-Jones). As well as this, a separate study explored where in their homes people should display flowers. Arrangements were placed in areas of the home that are open to visitors such as foyers, living rooms and dining rooms. The results found that it made the place more inviting and more conducive for welcoming guests!

'Thanks for everything' corporate flowers

Flowers are a great way to say a big thank you. But it's not just calendar dates such as Mother's day and Father's day in which flowers are used for this, they are also used regularly throughout the world of business. Whether it's for that important client, loyal customer or hardworking employee - a thank you bouquet is a fitting way to let a business partner or colleague aware of your appreciation. Alternatively, you could be sending out corporate flowers to a new client in the hope of build a long lasting business relationship. In fact, a study has shown that the use of flowers are a great way make intimate connections.

But which bouquets are best?

Flowers aren't just about what you see, they're about what they mean and how they make you feel. So, with this in mind, different flowers are said to have different effects on your mood. Lilies for example are said to purify the atmosphere, creating a fresh, tranquil and energised environment.

Roses are known for being a flower that portrays romance, love and beauty. But this doesn't mean they're just for Valentine's Day. Roses add an element of sophistication and style to any setting - making them perfect for corporate displays. Whether it's in the meeting room, on your desk or in reception, roses are both vibrant and versatile.
