Tips for Sending Flowers
Flowers are a way to let someone know you care,
so it is no wonder that sending flowers is such
a popular way to commemorate events, from the
birth of a new baby to Valentine's Day. In fact,
flowers are also the top choice for letting someone
know you're sorry. However, not all flower bouquets
are as nice as the rest. Before you send someone
flowers, you may want to do a bit of research.
Before you do anything else, take some time to
think about the type of flowers that this person
enjoys. While most people love red roses, there
are a few who prefer colorful wildflower bouquets
or exuberant sunflowers instead. Next, take a
look at the different arrangements available.
Some come in beautiful vases or include collectibles
as part of the arrangement. Others come in simple
vases that let the flowers shine.
After you choose the flowers you want, it is
time to send them to that special someone, right?
Well, while you may be ordering from a reputable
florist, that florist may not be the person actually
choosing, arranging, and delivering the flowers.
Instead, when flowers are being delivered to someone
some distance away, the florist passes the task
of filling the order onto a local florist. Ask
who will be doing the actual delivery and find
out if that florist has a good reputation.
Once you send the flowers to the recipient,
don't be afraid to follow up. Many times, a disappointing
bouquet is delivered, but the person who received
it may be afraid to offend the giver, so doesn't
say anything. If you mention that you want to
be sure the arrangement looks fresh and that it
contains the proper number of flowers, the recipient
will probably be much more forthcoming about the
condition of the bouquet. If it sounds like there
is a problem, follow up with the florist where
you placed your order and the florist who filled
it. After all, the person getting your bouquet
should get what you paid for.
Finally, you may want to consider sending a
very different type of flower, a living plant.
This way, your gift will continue to remind that
lucky someone of the event the flowers were sent
to commemorate long after a fresh bouquet would
be a distant memory. If you are sending flowers
to someone with a black thumb, you may want to
try sending a dried floral arrangement instead.
