Why Buy Flowers?

Guest Author - Connie Krochmal

There are both practical and aesthetic reasons to buy flowers. Here are just a few.


Convenience

Nowadays, it is more convenient than ever to buy flowers. People don’t have to go out of their way. Larger supermarkets often have floral departments.


Special Occasions

Flowers are perfect for special occasions. Many people buy them for holidays or special occasions because they make perfect gifts. In addition, flowers are the perfect choice when you’re looking for holiday decorations.

About 60% of consumers will buy either bouquets or flowering potted plants for Mother’s Day. Carnations have long been associated with this particular holiday.

Flowers are very suitable for the 4th of July. You can create all sorts of patriotic-themed bouquets and arrangements in this tri-color scheme.


Home Décor

With folks placing more emphasis than ever on interior decorating, this offers a real opportunity for floral design to move into the mainstream. Rather than using flowers occasionally as an accent, this deserves to be an integral part of home décor.

Don’t limit the use of flowers to living rooms or dining rooms. They can be displayed throughout the house.


Self-gifting

Buying flowers for oneself isn’t a sign of indulgence. One study found that almost 60% of women between the ages of 22 and 55 bought flowers for themselves. For those older than 55, they bought twice as often as the younger set.


Effects of Flowers

Flowers are a symbol of sharing. Even men are delighted to get them. They have universal appeal. People love to receive flowers as a gift because it makes them feel happy and contented. The very act of buying flowers as a gift also provides an emotional boost for the one making the purchase.

Studies have found that flowers have other emotional effects as well. In essence, they increase happiness and lead to social interactions. They have a positive long-term effect on mood. Basically, what it comes down to is this: people who buy flowers are happier. This is reason enough to buy flowers.
