Boost Your Joy with Yellow!

Boost Your Mood with Yellow Add a burst of color and a dose of good cheer with yellow! It’s a study-proven happiness booster that will make your home sunnier and your mood happier too!

Sometimes it only takes a can of paint or a few accessories to give your rooms the feeling of a sunny day.  The perfect dinner companion is yellow! It stimulates conversation and makes meals more fun. Choosing a yellow floral centerpiece for your next dinner party will be sure to brighten the mood. Daffodils, sunflowers, tulips and even roses are some beautiful bright yellow flowers that would make any occasion a celebration! Painting an old piece of furniture a happy shade of yellow will give it a fresh look with an uplifting hue. A quick tip if you want to tone down the yellow in your room is to mix it with white or cream colored furniture. Even a white-wash wood piece of furniture would soften the tone. Also keep in mind when choosing a paint swatch, pick a color that is one or two shades lighter than the hue that attracts you because sometimes yellow pigments look more intense on large surfaces.

Thank you for your service!

Each year, thousands of sailors and Marines are sent on assignment alone to Afghanistan, Iraq, horn of Africa, Guantanamo and other areas to fight the Global War on Terrorism.  Since 9/11, over 90,000 sailors have left their assigned units or commands to deploy individually or in small groups.  They are usually assigned to Army units to fill specialized roles that the Army has either trouble filling or has limited expertise.  Little or no ceremony marks their deployment or return.  Often, with very little notice, IA’s (Individual Augmentee) are asked to head to unknown territories, face unknown enemies and spend over a year away from their homes and families.  On the 6th, Field of Flowers will be donating wrapped roses to go out to the spouses of the IA’s that are being honored and we would like to say to all of the honorees, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!

Flowering Facts: Roses and their colors…

Roses by the bunch in many colors at Field of Flowers

Roses have been present on earth for millions of years.  Montana and Oregon have some rose fossil records dating back some 35 million years.  The rose flower has the most complicated family tree of any known flower species and has over 30,000 varieties.

Historically, roses have been used in incredibly extravagant ways.  Cleopatra once received her beloved Marc Antony in a room literally knee deep in rose petals.  The Romans thought nothing of carpeting their huge banquet halls with rose petals.

The rose is a popular design theme for china, clothing, carpets, tapestries and more.  The rose inspires fashion, interior design, sculpture, architecture and music.  There are over 4,000 songs written about roses.

There is nothing quite like a vase of fresh roses.  Available in countless color tones, each cultivar has a personality of its’ own.  The variations in shape, size, petal count, fragrance, opening performance and stem length make each rose unique.

The language of roses is expressed in the different colors.  Love, affection, friendship, thankfulness, joy and other emotions are represented by rose colors.  Red roses show love, passion and respect.  Pink roses communicate happiness, appreciation, admiration, friendship and sympathy.  Light pink roses denote grace, joy and gentility.  Dark pink roses are to signify thankfulness.  Lavender symbolizes love at first sight and enchantment.  White roses signify spiritual love and purity. Yellow roses show care, friendship, joy and gladness.  Coral roses imply desire.  Peach roses indicate modesty.  Orange roses display enthusiasm, desire and fascination.

For an elegant and casual look, take a rectangular vase and cut roses so that the head is just above the top of the vase.  Use enough roses to create a full arrangement.  Insert bear grass to add interesting lines.  A grouping of three vases can be done.  Use other flowers in the same color tones or use different colors of roses for a stunning display.
