Flowers on shabbos

Question:

Is there a source for decorating a home on shabbos with flowers, lchovod shabbos?

 

Answer:

Anything that is done for the honor of Shabbos is kavod Shabbos, however I am not aware of any specific minhag to buy flowers l’kavod Shabbos. There is an idea mentioned in the gemora of a person who took two hadasim (myrtle branches), but I am not aware of such an idea regarding flowers. The best I can say is that if your wife likes it, it promotes shalom bayis, which is important for Shabbos, as this is one of the reasons we light Shabbos candles

Best wishes
