Blooming and House Plants
In modern times people have sought ways to cultivate, buy, wear, or otherwise be around flowers and blooming plants, partly because of their agreeable appearance and smell. 
Around the world, people use flowers for a wide range of events and functions that, cumulatively, encompass one's lifetime:
- For new births or christenings
- As a corsage or boutonniere worn at social functions or for holidays
- As tokens of love or esteem
- For wedding flowers for the bridal party, and for decorations for the hall
- As brightening decorations within the home
- As a gift of remembrance for bon voyage parties, welcome-home parties, and "thinking of you" gifts
- For funeral flowers and expressions of sympathy for the grieving
- For worshiping goddesses. In Hindu culture adherents commonly bring flowers as a gift to temples
Flowers have been used since as far back as 50,000 years in funeral rituals. Many cultures do draw a connection between flowers and life and death, and because of their seasonal return flowers also suggest rebirth, which may explain why many people place flowers upon graves. In ancient times the Greeks would place a crown of flowers on the head of the deceased as well as cover tombs with wreaths and flower petals.
Rich and powerful women in ancient Egypt would wear floral headdresses and necklaces upon their death as representations of renewal and a joyful afterlife, and the Mexicans to this day use flowers prominently in their Day of the Dead celebrations in the same way that their Aztec ancestors did.
