When I feel a chill in the air, it reminds me that it's time to bring the beauty of autumn indoors! We can add visual warmth to any room with the welcoming flair of a fresh fall flowers centerpiece.

Flowers are an element of living well

When your family gathers around a table decorated with a centerpiece of fresh flowers, they feel like special guests. As our seasonal activities move indoors, we want to take the beauty of natural materials inside with us. "Flowers bring about positive emotional feelings in those who enter a room," says Dr. Jeannette Haviland-Jones according to Rutgers University research. "They make the space more welcoming and create a sharing atmosphere."
