Flower Power

We recently stumbled upon an article on cosmoflowers about how the color of flowers affect our mood. It is important that one considers colors when picking out flowers for someone. Keep this information in mind when you order your next arrangement.

Did you know our eyes can see over 7,000 different color combinations. Some colors work harmoniously while can clash and disrupt our mood.

Colors have an influence on our minds, our attitudes, disposition, well-being, and moods.

What emotion do you want to express?

The Aromatic World of Flowers

“I KNOW THIS IS MADE OUT OF PAPER, BUT IT LOOKS SO REAL, I JUST WANT TO SMELL IT.”

I am often asked if I scent my flowers or why don’t I scent my flowers.

On the average, about 80% of the people that see Paper Fancies for the first or even repeated, instinctively try to smell them.

Certain smells remind us of the flowers mom, dad or grandma had in their home or garden.  We associate experiences with smells from the orange peel, to the smell of fresh baked bread to the scent of the most fragrant flowers.

Although the scent of a flower or food dissipates quickly, these flowers can be refreshed as often as you’d like with your favorite aromatherapy product brining you back to your favorite memory.
