According to the Society of American Florists, the national trade association for the floral industry, five of the most common reasons people send flowers are to say thank you, I’m sorry, congratulations, get well and express sympathy.
Select from our “Every Day” category at karinsflorist.com or ask a friendly floral representative at Karin’s Florist for an arrangement conveying a casual, hand-picked feeling, to say thank you with a very personal touch. In addition to a beautiful statement of thanks, the note card can say everything that is too hard to say in person.
Flowers are the traditional gift to get out of the doghouse because they easily make the statement, “I was wrong.” To apologize with sincerity, select a nostalgic arrangement, using a blend of delicate warm and cool lavenders and pinks. Having opened the door to forgiveness, follow the delivery up with a phone call.
A bouquet of bold, contrasting colors is a fun-loving, playful way to say “Congratulations,” “Welcome home,” or “Great job.” You can even get creative with the container. For example, if a friend just got a new job, request that the bouquet be put in a fun pencil holder or something that represents the occasion.
It’s never easy comforting someone who has lost a loved one, but flowers can say what is often difficult to express in words. Flowers are usually sent to the funeral home to provide warmth and beauty to the service. If a service is not planned, grief experts recommend sending condolences to the bereaved person’s home.
Choose a serene color scheme of light shades of cool hues or a cheerful assortment of colors such as yellows, reds, pinks, purples, and more to let someone who is ill know you’re thinking of them. When sending flowers to a hospital, it’s helpful to have the name of the hospital, the patient’s name and room number ready when placing your order. It’s also good to know the hospital’s flower policy.
