Floral Design to Comabt the Winter Blues

Rosehip WreathFloral Design Day is an officially recognized observance in Massachusetts, celebrating the birthday of Carl Rittner, who founded The Rittners School of Floral Design, in Boston and was a pioneer in floral art education. Celebrated on February 28th, the premise of the observance is to take a moment to reflect on the role flowers and floral art play in our lives. From fresh flower arrangements, to paintings, take a moment to appreciate the sight and smell of the natural beauty of flowers.

The Rittners School of Floral Design offers some ideas on ways to celebrate including:

  • Visiting some flower shops to compare floral design styles and materials.
  • Visiting a museum and look at paintings containing flowers and floral art.
  • Bringing flowers into your home this month.
  • Bringing flowers to work.
  • Crafting a fresh, dried, or silk flower arrangement.
  • Writing about flowers and how they make you feel.

Some of the team here at Sturbridge make an effort to keep a wreath on the front door all year around, changing it out monthly or seasonally. Flowers on the door can make a homecoming even brighter, as can seasonally changing arrangements inside the home. In addition to lifting the spirits, changing a floral arrangement is an inexpensive way to freshen the look of any room.
