There are many things to consider when going away to school – and dorm room decorating is just one of them, With so many things on your to-do list (and because you are most likely feeling a little nervous as well) the staff at Beneva Flowers is here to help. We have some great ideas that will brighten your dorm space – some classic, some unique and some that are sure to spark a conversation with your new roommates!
Getting Started: Aside from your most comfortable pillow, favorite posters, and a photo or two from home, the quickest way to add the special something to your new room is with a green plant. Not only do these awesome plants help to keep the air clean and free of toxins, but they immediately make any space feel more homey and comfortable.
Succulents are among the smartest plants you can add – not only do the look pretty cool, they are low maintenance, perfect for a student with a full schedule. And when they are delivered in designer containers and chic vases, they fit right into your decor. Succulent Serenity, above, and Succulent Supreme, below, are two of our favorites. Not sure if these are right for you? Check out the whole collection.
Send a friendly little green plant to your college student – our Desktop Garden is compact enough to sit on their desk, and provides beautiful, calming greenery in an organic and natural presentation.
A Reminder for Mom & Dad: You may be focused on how to set your student up on the first day, but they may need you more in a few weeks. When the homesickness settles in a bit, when they start wondering if they can handle the workload, when they begin to miss you (even if they won’t tell you) – send a care package to lift their spirits. Whether fruit, junk food, or gourmet selections, we have something for everyone. Not only will they be thrilled to receive a basket overflowing with snacks, but it may make them pretty popular with their new roommates. Perfect for birthdays or just because, we also know that fresh floral bouquets are a special touch from home that will let them know they are on your mind.
Dorm room decorating is easy – bring all the comforts of home, and add a few green plants for ambiance and style. You’ll find everything you need at Beneva Flowers & Gifts. So whether your student is leaving to go to school, or just arriving in Sarasota for the next 4 years, we’re here to help make the transition a little easier.
