|If you order flowers by phone, tell your florist the|
sentiment you want to communicate. Remember, your florist is the expert,
so don’t feel that you have to know the name of every particular flower.
Just mention the occasion, your relationship to the recipient, and if you
have any favorite flowers or colors in mind. Allowing the florist to
assist you with the selection of flowers and to design a bouquet just for
you will often result in the best overall gift for your budget. So, you’ll
be more pleased with your flower delivery.
Before you order…
Have the spelling of the recipient’s name and his or her
complete delivery address ready, including any apartment number, company
name, suite, or floor number. Delivery to “Susie” at “Rockafellar
Center” probably won’t cut it. The recipient’s phone number is also
very helpful to ensure delivery, and may sometimes be required. After all,
you want your flowers to arrive at the right place on the right day. So,
make sure you’ve got your facts straight.
As important as the flowers are, if you don’t take a few
moments to think about the card message, your sentiment could be lost.
Florists will include a small enclosure card free of charge, and larger
gift cards are also available. Have a short message ready when you call,
or ask for your florist’s advice. If you order flowers online, most sites
will have suggestions for you. The important thing is to express yourself
simply and personally. It makes your flower delivery gift all that more
special. Also remember to include the sender(s) name(s) on the card, so
the recipient knows who to thank.
If you are ordering flowers online…
Remember that web sites can’t show every flower
arrangement. There is an infinite number of combinations possible, so
don’t be afraid to call if you don’t see what you are looking for.
Florists excel at creating beautiful one-of-a-kind designs for almost
every taste and budget to help you send just the right message with every
The magical result
Sending flowers is a wonderful way to say,
“thanks”, “cheer up”, “feel better soon”,
“congratulations”, or “I love you”. You can send
flowers almost anywhere on almost any day, and there is something magical
about how they make people feel. Floral gifts show how much you care, and
at the same time they say a lot about you, the sender. Look to your local
florist for help or visit your favorite online flower shop. You’ll find
that the age-old tradition of giving flowers is very much alive, and
easier than you may think.
