Use silk and/or fresh flowers to add color and liveliness to a room and put the flowers in a gorgeous vase or jug. Not everyone has the same taste in flowers. Yet everyone gives and receives them from time to time- a bouquet to show appreciation for services rendered, some roses in thanks for a dinner invitation, violets as a sign of friendship, lilacs to suggest budding love, floral arrangements for festive occasions.
Giving flowers is not only the most popular way to express a desire to please, it is the surest way to succeed. There in lies the true virtue and perhaps power of flowers- a pretty bouquet can say it all, congratulations and condolences, appreciation and respect, or deep attachment and true affection extending as far as love, for which flowers are known to work wonders. When it comes to love, flowers are not a small affair. Above all, however, women buy flowers for themselves, for their home.
