Silk Flowers are symbolic
Flowers are not simply meant to be given out with the idea of its meaning. Their varying colours also have something to do with the symbol they want to convey. For roses, a red one would mean love or affection, yellow would mean friendship, peach would mean gratitude, white would mean sincerity (especially in apologies), and pink would mean admiration.
Flowers have been scientifically proven to make us happy
Simply seeing flowers can boost chemicals within our brain that has to do with our happiness: serotonin, oxytocin, and dopamine. Serotonin is a chemical in our brain that’s boosted when we feel a sense of social importance. So when you receive flowers, which is used as a form of stimuli for attention, you get a feeling of importance. You feel that someone is thinking of you and has an emotion they want to convey, thus making you a focus of attention for some. Oxytocin is boosted when a person feels romantic love, social trust, maternal love, or solidarity from a group of people. Last but not the least, dopamine is a chemical that’s boosted when we feel the need to expect a reward. Flowers boost our dopamine because in the early age, it triggered a sense of reward to our earliest ancestors since it symbolised the coming of spring (abundance) after long periods of winter and hunger.
