How to Create Beautiful Bouquets for Your Home
(ARA) - Got a case of the morning blues? Whether you're a morning person or not, recent research shows that flowers might be the perfect way to start your day.

A study conducted by researchers at Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital found that most people felt the least positive in the early hours, but were happier and more energetic after looking at flowers first thing in the morning.

"The benefits of flowers are endless. They not only start your day out right, they add a delicious fragrance and are one of the most affordable ways to beautify your home in an instant. Flowers are an easy way for anyone to create simple designs that reflect their personal tastes," says Jill Slater, floral designer for Flower Promotion Organization.

Here are some tips for creating unique and beautiful bouquets for your home:

* Always cut stems so the flower has a fresh cut to intake water. Also remember to remove all the leaves below the water line to help keep the water clean.
* Because the kitchen is a great place for flowers, continue with the theme by using traditional kitchen containers like tea tins, jelly jars, wine bottles, coffee cans. These will add a unique look to any bouquet.
* Look at your room and pick accent colors to incorporate into your flower design. For example, if there are placemats on the kitchen table, use their color in your bouquet to tie in the color and theme of the room.
* Flowers can also inspire neatness. Try placing your bouquet where clutter usually accumulates to prevent future messes from settling there.

Try this fun flower recipe by Jill Slater in your home:

"Pitcher This"

Anything that holds water can hold flowers. That includes items from the kitchen cabinet. This recipe features a pitcher. Pitchers work just like regular flower vases but in many ways can match your home decor and become a customized flower vessel; plus they are already on hand, adding convenience.


1 pitcher
Floral preservative
3 stems of the following flowers - yellow lilies, orange/yellow two-tone roses, yellow alstroemeria and yellow solidaster
5 stems of white freesia
10 long stems of mint or another complementary foliage.
Floral clippers


Step 1 - Fill the pitcher three-quarters full with water and add floral preservative.
Step 2 - Remove the leaves from the flowers and foliage that will be below the water-line.
Step 3 - Insert the greens first. Do this by criss-crossing the stems as you insert them into the pitcher. This will create a web effect that will help keep the flowers in place.
Step 4 - Cut the flowers to about twice the height of the pitcher, leaving several stems an inch or two longer for the center of the arrangement.
Step 5 - Place the longest and thickest stems in the center the pitcher first.
Step 6 - Now insert more flowers in a criss-cross fashion along the rim and towards the center of the pitcher as well.
Step 7 - To increase the enjoyment life of the flowers, change the water in the pitcher and add more floral preservative every 2 to 3 days.
