Generally it is considered ideal to send flowers to those who have lost a loved one and are in depression. Flowers work their magic and encourage the person to look at the brighter side of life and help in the recovery process. Medical science has acknowledged this concept and bright flowers are grown in the hospital gardens. If due to space constraints there cannot be gardens, then cut flowers are present around the hospital especially around the patient’s bed side.
Bright and colourful flowers in a vase are also connected with a feeling of warmth. The hospitality industry that is hotels and restaurants go out of their way to decorate the reception, lobbies and other common areas with exquisite flower arrangements. The flower arrangements are done in such a way that they enhance the warmth and cosiness of the interiors and add to the feeling of homeliness.
