It's more than just throwing blooms together - flowers are part of interior design.

Flowers aren't just a lovely gesture during the week of Valentines Day. They're bright, blooming plants that can liven up any setting, whether it's a romantic candlelit table or a dining room display.

Implementing a floral display, no matter how big or small, can put a smile to almost everyone's face, improving moods and ambience.

However, it's more than just a matter of throwing any blooms you find together – arranging an elegant and tasteful floral display isn't necessarily rocket science, but it does require some thought when you're looking to complement design elements around it.

Here are a few reasons why flowers are a great addition to your business or home.

The healing power of flowers

The presence of indoor plants can remove pollutants, mould and airborne microorganisms.

Flowers are more than just widely enjoyed for aesthetics – they can be beneficial for our health too! Manhattan-based researchers Mattson and Park conducted a study which looked at the effects of plants, flowers included, when placed in the hospital rooms of patients who had undergone abdominal surgery. Results of patient data showed that those exposed to plants required painkillers less often, and that systolic blood pressure levels were significantly lower. 

This study also highlighted similar studies, all of which found the presence of indoor plants to purify air by removing pollutants, mould and airborne microorganisms, thereby increasing the quality of the air we breathe.

Placing a few fresh cuts around your home could help to improve your family's health, and in an establishment, this practice could potentially also reduce absenteeism rates among your employees.

Make sure the flowers you're after aren't high in pollen – this could trigger hayfever symptoms, which no one wants when trying to enjoy food at their local establishment. An events management course at Kenvale can provide you further industry experience when organising a location to hold large groups of people, whilst looking sophisticated, professional and elegant.A few inspiration ideas

When choosing colour palettes, select from no more than three colours that sit next to each other on a colour wheel. This creates a balance of petal hues that blend in seamlessly – especially when chosen to match your interior design.

Alternatively, you can select two adjoining colours, for example, blue and purple, and one contrasting colour, such as orange, to create a complementary bouquet.

When decorating for a restaurant, make sure that the petals aren't prone to falling off, and rest them in a sugar solution to prolong the life of the plants. Smaller is always better on dining tables, so keep it simple.

Interior decorating is a key aspect in many professions. If you'd like to know more about decorating your home, business or conference space, don't hesitate to contact our friendly team.

Thank you for inviting us – we really did appreciate it. I must say I was really impressed by the Briar Ridge team – one of them (… Aiden) did a really great job explaining who they were, what they were about etc., and really took the time to give us the background on the person behind it all (Gwyn Olsen). He’d clearly immersed himself in the project, and I think she’d have been really pleased if she’d seen that. Happy to reach out and tell her so if you think it would help pave the way for future events.

I just wanted to express thanks and congratulations to all at Kenvale for the magnificent lunch provided on Thursday.

I have been to many hatted restaurants this year and can honestly say that they would have struggled to produce such fantastic dishes.

The lunch was a credit to your students and your staff.  It would be a privilege to enjoy another visit next year.

Best wishes to your graduating students for success in their career and to your staff to continue to guide students to reach such a high standard.
