What makes zinnias such a wonderful flower to add to your home decor? People love zinnias for their long-lasting, brightly colored blooms. The zinnia is said to represent feelings of friendship and affection, with different colors holding a slightly different meaning. For example, the white zinnia bloom means goodness while a magenta zinnia represents lasting affections. What a great flower to share with someone you love. But if you can’t add some real zinnias to your home, why not get the next best thing and create your own faux flower garden. Decorating your home with zinnia flower stencils is a great way to start!
