Fresh flowers have always been linked to great fortune and happiness in ancient China. It’s probably why you can see intricate floral patterns hand painted on ceramics and embroidered in their most delicate silk fabrics. If you love having fresh flowers delivered to your home regularly or getting them as gifts for special occasions, knowing they also bring prosperity and positivity is another reason to keep them coming into your everyday life.
