Okay, so here are my thoughts when it comes to sending flowers. I personally love flowers as they add so much character, colour and calmness to photos. There are hundreds of occasions that are great for giving flowers, in fact you don’t need a reason at all, you can give flowers to someone you care for anytime you want. There are some considerations to factor in if you want just the right bouquet designs, delivered at just the right time though.
Take The Time To Plan The Right Bouquet And The Right Delivery Time
Picking the right arrangement to send someone is possibly the most difficult part of sending flowers. However, there are thousands of photos online, and most florists can replicate most of them throughout the year. There are some flowers that are very difficult to find in some seasons, but you can ask if you’re unsure.
One thing is for certain, the person receiving the flowers won’t know of all the different choices you had, they’ll be adoring the one’s they have sitting in front of them instead. If there is a particular reason for sending flowers, Valentines Day, Christmas, or birthday, that can help you decide by narrowing your search parameters.
As far as the right time to have them delivered, that may take some detective work on your part for best results. Don’t hesitate to make a few calls to a close friend or relative to get a more precise time, it can make a lot of difference in some situations. Flowers left on an outside porch during a winter storm, won’t have the same appeal as those delivered personally.
A Local Shop Can Be Better Than An Online Service
If you know of a reputable local flower shop like www.wildroseflorist.com.au, it’s almost always better to go straight there to place your order. When you order through an online service, they take a commission, then pass the order off to a local florist anyway, that has agreed to accept less money for the business. This can result in a lower quality arrangement in some cases, and the personal touch of knowing that you care comes through more often from the local shop as well.
Also, when it comes to delivery instructions, the local florist will be able to take exact directions from you, down to the color of the house if need be. This can make a huge difference in getting the flowers delivered on time, due to traffic, darkness, hidden addresses, and other problems. Always double check the address before and after you give it to the florist.
If you have a specific delivery time, like a very small window of opportunity, then be prepared to pay extra for this service. Delivery drivers get paid by the hour and mile, so having them wait or rush, costs the florist more money. With high gas prices, a large delivery van can be expensive to run.
Sending flowers is one of the absolute best ways to show your appreciation and how much you care. There are some people that haven’t received flowers for years and they may very well cry tears of joy when they see the one’s you’ve sent. So all the best on your flower education – happy flower hunting!
