When choosing beautiful flowers to cheer someone up, the natural inclination is to get yellow flowers, but actually, yellow is not necessarily the best color for cheering up someone who is down. In fact, studies show that people are more likely to lose their temper in a room that is painted yellow. Yellow can be a very bright color for the eye to process, causing people to become aggravated, so it is best to pair it with other colors, or omit it all together. Studies show that the best colors for cheering up that loved one are the colors orange, green or blue. Orange evokes enthusiasm, green is the most restful and blue has been shown to bring down blood pressure, and slow respiration and heart rate. Here are a few of our favorite color therapy bouquets to bring a little cheer to the life of someone who is stressed:
As we mentioned, orange evokes enthusiasm. Do you know someone who is a little down? This bouquet is brimming with orange and is the perfect pick-me-up for that special someone who is feeling a little depressed. This perfectly blended bouquet is a burst of Asiatic lilies, peach roses, and yellow solidago. While there is yellow in this bouquet, as we mentioned earlier, the fact that it is dispersed among so much orange makes it blend in beautifully with the orange theme. The bouquet comes arranged in a clear glass vase which is covered in a warm orange decorative wrap.

If you have a friend who has been going through such a rough patch that they can’t remember the last time that they got a wink of sleep, then a green bouquet is the perfect option to inspire sleep. Green is considered a restful color, and so a green bouquet of beautiful flowers, such as this stunning bouquet of soft green gladiolus, is an excellent opportunity to say “get some rest.” These stems are tall and graceful, and would command a serene influence over the unrested recipient if set atop their bedside table.
If a loved one in your life is full of stress and tension, the calming color blue is a great way to help them relax. If they are having a tough time at the office, or at home, this serene hydrangea plant is a lovely way to remind them to take a breather when things are getting to be too troublesome. The bonus to this plant is that it comes planted in a pot made of natural green fibers, so it offers the calming effect of both blue and green. Because these are planted, they will last for a long time.
The gesture of sending flowers to someone who needs cheering up is a great way to send a loving message, but to go a step further and send calming colors will be even more appreciated by the recipient.
