When you are in a room together whether it’s the family dinner table or a conference room and you all need to come to some type of agreement, the color of centerpiece matters. Try orange flowers!
Pick a few orange flowers and make that the focus of your floral decoration for the table. In her book, Feng Shui in the Garden, author Nancilee Wydra covers how colors and flowers affect people. She writes, “Orange, the color of fusion, can be used in classrooms, negotiation chambers, courtrooms and shared areas. This is the color to use when compromising is a benefit.” Mixing yellow and red helps energy become clearer, she continues. It helps with conversation and spirituality and discourages isolation, insecurity and individuality.
Spring orange flowers you can plant include pot marigold (Calendula), pansy, snapdragon, Alstroemeria, and daylily. Summer orange flowers include begonia, zinnia, chrysanthemum, canna, and dahlias.
Pictured above is a simple combination of flower you can pick up at your local grocery store. Five stems of orange Alstroemeria are combined with 10 stems of orange Ranunculus in an orange metallic bowl.
