What's your birth flower and its meaning?
Enjoy seasonal flowers in your style.

The three benefits of flowers — they are more than just pretty.

We decorate places with flowers quite casually. Flowers satisfy our minds by simply being there. However flowers are not only beautiful, they have been known to have therapeutic effects by stimulating our senses of vision, smell and touch.

When you see flowers, you probably notice their colors first. These colors work like color therapy; they soothe people's minds or cheer them up. The scent of a flower is believed to increase a 'healing hormone' inside the brain and as a result create a sense of happiness. Also, touching flowers to arrange them is said to make the brain active *1.

In addition, gentle words associated with flowers enhance the peace of mind to boost the therapeutic effects. Enjoy flowers not only for their beautiful appearance but also through all five of your senses by learning the language of flowers, i.e. the words and phrases associated with them.

Incorporate birth flowers and their meaning into your daily living.

To appreciate the benefits of flowers and words associated with them, it is recommended to decorate your room with birth flowers having attractive messages.
While there are a wide variety of birth flowers and their respective messages, here are some examples:*2

moth orchids
(happiness will fly in)

(casual and simple)


reeves spirea
(elegance and grace)

lily of the valley
(forthcoming happiness)

(spiritual beauty)

calla lily

(always fresh beauty)

hibiscus mutabilis
(delicate beauty)

aster tataricus

(delight and joyful)

(classy lady)

Let monthly and seasonal flowers be your emotional inspiration.

You may not feel like decorating your room with flowers when you are busy. However, simply choosing flowers and arranging them can give you room to breathe.
Refine your sensitivity and enrich your life with beautiful flowers. Make Your Life a beautiful Masterpiece, Day by Day.
