And when you call Robertson’s Flowers, you can be assured that the very best floral designs will arrive to brighten their day.
We Have Proof! Of course, we have always known that flowers have the ability to spread happiness. But a recent study at Harvard University has provided scientific evidence to back up that claim. Across every demographic, when a bouquet of flowers was presented to a recipient, their levels of happiness and well-being grew measurably. Since illness is known to inspire sadness and anxiety, flowers are the perfect antidote.
When someone is not feeling their best, bright and vivid colors help to raise spirits. Yellow is universally recognized as the most cheerful hue on the spectrum and is a smart choice for get well flowers. Roses, tulips, and orchids are all beautiful options; you may also want to design a bouquet with vibrant purple, orange and blue.
Consider This: Ask our experts about the fragrance of individual flowers you may wish to include. Sometimes a heavy fragrance can be bothersome to someone who is ill (and may not be permitted in hospitals). Depending on the patient’s condition, you may wish to choose flowers that have low-scent.
