Reception Displaying beautiful fresh flowers at an office's reception area makes the area warm and cheery, and makes anyone visiting the office feel welcomed. Popular areas to display the flowers include the front desk, side tables, and coffee tables. Large flower arrangements work best in open areas.

Decor Adding a bright and stylish touch to drab offices, pretty flower arrangements throughout the various office floors is an easy way to improve teams' moods as they walk by. Office flowers displayed throughout the office space makes walking the halls or chatting with a co-worker on the way to a meeting more beautiful!

Break Room Common areas, such as the break room, have gotten better and better over the years as companies have caught on that fun things like TVs, free snacks, good coffee and tea, and even pool tables make work more fun! As a place where teams can take a quick coffee break, have snacks and lunches, and even meet for an informal team meeting, the break room is definitely an important part of the office building. Adding to the overall vibe of the break room, fresh flowers brighten up the space and make it even more welcoming.


Many workplaces, similar to many upscale hotels and restaurants, make use of fresh flower arrangements in the restrooms.

Conference Rooms Discussing monthly reports and reviewing presentations may not be the most enjoyable thing about work life, but doing so in a brighter, more cheerful space makes it not as bad! It is popular for executive assistants to regularly place office flowers on conference room tables to brighten up the boring decor of the conference room.

Desks Beautifying work desks with pretty fresh flower arrangements to look at while working on the computer is very popular. Even if a desk is cluttered, pretty flowers draw the eye right to them!

Co-working Spaces As more and more workers have decided to go the self-employed route, co-working spaces have exploded in popularity. These spaces are often hip and cater to customers who enjoy a cool space that is welcoming and cheerful.

Executive Offices Executive offices are usually much bigger, and let's face it, swankier, then other workers' desks, and important meetings are often held there. That's why many executive assistants use flowers to make the space more bright, cheery and welcoming to visitors.

As you can see, there are many ways to use flowers in offices. For more information on office flower delivery services, visit our office flower delivery services page.
