To me, nothing says “Welcome to my home” like the presence of fresh flowers. I often have a vase of flowers setting on my kitchen table to welcome guest as they walk through the door. Flowers have a way of creating a feeling of well being, calm, happiness, and intimacy. Their mere presence is a symbol of sharing, an important element in creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere in your home. The presence of flowers can elevate the mood, relieving stress and bringing sunshine to the dreariest of days.
