Some say it is the most wonderful time of the year, while others dread it. Let’s face it, sending kids back to school – especially college students – can be a bit emotional. Here at Curran’s Flowers, we have decades of experience in helping to ease life’s transitions, and this one is no different. While considering how to pack, what to bring, and how to arrange the college dorm decor, we suggest remembering the little touches that will make a room feel a bit more like home.
The Incredible Green Plant: You’ve heard us sing the praises of the green plant before, and for good reason. Not only do they look beautiful in virtually any setting, but they help to detoxify and purify the air in the room around them. Cleaner air results in improved focus and concentration, as well as increased productivity. In other words, in its own small way, the plant can help your student to excel – making it the perfect college dorm decor accent.
Dish gardens and cubes are great choices for the college dorm room, as they take up very little space and are self contained. We also love succulents and cacti, as they tend to be exceptionally low maintenance. These are college students, after all. We don’t want to give them too much to worry about besides classes!
While leaving a plant in their dorm room is a great idea on drop-off day, don’t forget that a special delivery throughout the rest of the school year will let your student know that you are thinking of them. Whether to fight off homesickness just a few weeks in, or to celebrate their birthday across the miles, we have flowers and gifts that are sure to make their day. Something they are sure to appreciate is one of our gourmet gift baskets, because every college student needs late night snacks. Sending a student to live away from home can be tough, but a special gift to remind them of home will help deal with the changes. Whether they will be close to Danvers or are headed out-of-state, Curran’s Flowers has everything you need.
