There is an association with flowers as a symbol of positivity. For that reason they are almost always included in life’s happiest moments like birthdays, weddings, and holidays.
There’s also scientific reason why we give flowers to people who are unwell, especially in a hospital situation. Patients recovering from surgery in a room with flowers reported lower rates of pain, stress, and fatigue than those in rooms without flowers.
