Moll Anderson’s Advice on How To Change Your Home and Change Your Life with Flowers

Would you believe me if I said a fresh bunch of beautiful flowers could change your life? I believe that if you change your home, you also change your life. Making any change to your home—that first coat of paint, that choice of drapes, that small vase of roses—means you have taken the first step on a new path. These changes, though seemingly small, begin to stir positive energy into your soul!

Start this forward movement with just one simple must-have item: flowers! They evoke sensory responses through both sight and smell, and have the potential to brighten the blandest of spaces instantly!

For spring think big blooms and bright colors—a nice pop of color will add energy to your space. A fabulous floral arrangement or a couple of simple stems will do the trick of bringing in the exact vibe you want your home to have. All you need to do is decide what you want your home to say! And the best part is that you can change it up as much as you like!

Say It with Flowers
Flowers have personality and can represent a myriad of different meanings:

Red Rose: Love and passion
Pink Rose: Beauty
Orchid: Luxury
Daisy: Innocence
Yellow Tulip: Hopelessly in love
Azalea: Self-control
Peonies: Romance

Power of the Flower
The mere presence of flowers in your home will increase the amount of romance you feel. So, don’t underestimate the power of the flower! When creating the ultimate stage for romance I’ve always said, “Dim the lights, turn on the music and fill the room with gorgeous flowers!” Now that’s a seductive home. Go ahead and take the first step to changing your home. Stop at the grocery or your local florist and pick up a dozen of whatever flower speaks to you!

What are you waiting for?
