Nine Ways to Bring Good Luck into Your Home

Filling your home with verdant plants, fresh flowers, and symbolic decor has the power to enhance your mood, spruce up your space, and even improve air circulation. When thoughtfully selecting which items will fit best, you should also consider their symbolism and ability to bring you love, good fortune, wealth, and good luck. The experts here at Heartfelt Florist are excited to dive into some of the best lucky plants, blooms, and more so you can be sure your home is full of good juju.

Plants that Bring Good Luck

Lucky Bamboo

Lucky Bamboo

Bamboo plants have been one of our favorite universal symbols of good luck. According to Feng Shui, the hollow stalks allow for a free flow of positive movement and Chi energy, generating prosperity, peace, good luck, wealth, and abundance. If you ever receive a lucky bamboo plant with two stalks as a gift, the sender expresses their love for you, and you can expect your luck to double.

Money Tree

Money Tree

Also rooted in the teachings of Feng Shui, money tree plants, or Pachira Aquatica, are thought to bring good luck, wealth, and prosperity to anyone who has one in their office or home. The braided trunk of a money tree catches the good luck in its folds, and the five leaves on the ends of each stalk represent one of the five elements; keeping earth, fire, water, wind, and metal in perfect balance. If you are fortunate enough to acquire a rare money tree with seven stalks, be sure to count your blessings as immense luck is sure to come your way.

Jade Plant

Jade Plant

Since Feng Shui favors plants with round leaves and sees them as a way to bring about fortune and good luck, jade plants are undoubtedly lucky. In Asian cultures, people turn to jade plants to activate financial energies. While these succulents offer beneficial chi energy that promotes healthy positivity, the symbolism of jade plants is even more profound. Jade leaves represent energy and a joyful friendship, while its flowers signify a great bond and even deeper, beautiful friendship.

Flowers that Bring Good Luck

Blue and Lavender Hydrangea

Hydrangea

Hydrangeas, with their full-bodied blooms producing a significant number of flowers, are a symbol of abundance, wealth, and prosperity. In addition, each color of hydrangea holds additional meaning connected to good luck. Pink and red hydrangeas represent romance, purple is linked to gratefulness and leadership, white hydrangeas symbolize pride and vanity, blue is related to understanding and gratitude, and green hydrangeas mean good fortune, prosperity, youthfulness, and good health.

Peonies

Peonies

Another classic favorite bloom, peonies are large flowers with layers of perfect petals that offer the sweetest scents. While their stunning appearance and alluring fragrance are enough to justify their popularity, peonies can also be a good luck charm. Having peonies in your wedding bouquet is thought to ensure a happy marriage. In China and Japan, these blooms link to nobility, prosperity, honor, bravery, respect, and good fortune.

Chrysanthemums

Chrysanthemums

The name chrysanthemum comes from the Greek words chrysos and anthemon, translating to gold flower. As this golden treasure is admired all across the globe and even nicknamed “The Queen of Fall Flowers,” its symbolism of longevity, life, good luck, prosperity, and wealth only enhances its beauty and adoration. Especially in autumn, various types of chrysanthemums can be spotted in porch pots, bud vases, seasonal arrangements, and wedding bouquets.

Objects that Bring Good Luck

Elephant

Elephant

Whether it’s a painting hung on the wall, hidden in eclectic wallpaper, or a lovely figurine or sculpture displayed on a shelf, bringing elephants into your space is sure to attract good luck.  In many cultures, elephants are symbols of wisdom, strength, loyalty, and good luck, but it is important that your elephants’ trunks are always facing up.

Horse Shoe

Horse Shoe

Historically, iron horseshoes were utilized to keep away evil spirits, as this material was believed to have such power and ability. Crafted by blacksmiths, who were looked at as practicing a “lucky” trade, horseshoes were often held in place by seven (another famous symbol of luck) nails. Today, if you were to pass through a doorway adorned with a horseshoe, good luck will be on its way. Be wary because if a horseshoe is hung at an upside-down “U,” it is said that all of the luck will fall out.

Single gold fish swimming in bowl

Goldfish

Providing a caring home to a goldfish, whether in a fishbowl or a pond in your yard, is considered a good omen. Goldfish offer wealth, longevity, power, peace, and wisdom, making it a fantastic good luck charm as well as a soothing and blissful companion. If owning a live goldfish doesn’t fit within your lifestyle, ornamental goldfish can also provide the same luck and symbolism.

As we will soon be preparing for the end of 2021 and ready to welcome in a brand-new year, collecting or gifting a few good luck charms seems most appropriate. For your favorite lucky flowers and plants, be sure to peruse our online catalog here at Heartfelt Florist.
