Making Someone's Day: A Guide to Sending Flowers

Making Someone's Day

By their very nature, color, scents, and alluring blooms, flowers symbolize joy and pleasure. They are also a versatile gift and come in a myriad of types. It might be possible that you’ve never given or thought of giving anyone flowers and don’t know what to do when that fateful day comes.

No need to worry; all you need is to do some digging to find out your beloved’s preferences and taste, and you’ll be well on your way to getting the perfect flowers for them. That said, here are some crucial guidelines to follow when sending flowers to anyone on any occasion.

1. Consider The Color

The color of the flowers is an excellent starting point. The colors can portray different meanings to the giftee since they add sentimental value to the flowers.

For example, with their warm and bright hues, orange flowers are symbols of energy and excitement. With that in mind, they’re the right color choice to send to someone to lift their spirits.

Take green-colored flowers as another example. Although not that popular, they give a vibe of growth.This means they should be delivered in times or incidences of dramatic changes in someone’s life. A perfect example could be when someone has done something extraordinary, like beating a persistent disease like cancer.

2. Play It Safe

Play it Safe

Sometimes, it doesn’t hurt to play it safe. Say, you’re planning a flower delivery to Werribee, and you’re confident your recipient is a sucker for roses. In this case, you don’t have to wrack your brain trying to think of the perfect flowers.

Use this knowledge to your advantage and get them roses. You will never go wrong if it’s something they like. But before you do this, make sure you read tip number 5 to make it even more special.

3. Choose Long-Lasting Flowers

Another factor to consider when sending flowers is how long they will last. Sending long-lasting flowers gives the recipient a chance to enjoy them longer. Whether it’s a whiff to please their olfactory senses when needed or just staring at them in awe of their beauty, long-lasting flowers prolong these joys.

The longer the flowers can last, and, of course, how easy they are to take care of, the further they’ll go in surprising your loved ones to make their day.

4. Opt for Allergy-Free Flowers

Allergy-Free Flowers

This is a no-brainer and a put-off if not adhered to while picking the flowers of choice for your beloved.

Keep that in mind when choosing the perfect flowers for whoever it may be, especially if the person is hospitalized, as it may cause problems for them and the other patients.

You want to make someone’s day, not give them an itchy nose and a cough. Therefore, opt for allergy-free flowers like roses and sunflowers.

However, this shouldn’t be that hard if you’re already informed about the types of allergy-free flowers the recipient likes.

5. Score Big Points

Flower surprises always give off a feel-good vibe to the recipient. The gesture will be remembered for days, and the recipients will, more often than not, reciprocate.

So, once you’re sure of the factors mentioned above, you’re almost there. The next thing is to send the flowers when they least expect it. This would definitely make their day. Not to mention, you’ll score big points for being spontaneous and full of surprises.

6. Don’t Obsess Over Size

Don't Obsess Over Size

Size is also a significant factor to put into consideration. You don’t need an enormous bouquet for every occasion. Sometimes less is more.

Take hospitals, for example. Sending large bouquets to someone in a hospital might interfere with the day-to-day endeavors as they may be in the way. The flowers end up being a problem instead of a joy. In this case, size is a deal breaker.

However, if the setting allows and you’ve got some extra bucks to spend, go big. Most people won’t complain.

7. Accompany It with a Thoughtful Card

You got down the color and size, ensured they’re allergy-free flowers, and know the perfect time to send your bouquet. What’s next? Now you need to add a personal touch to the flowers. All you need is a card.

Apart from having a thoughtful message, the card must suit the occasion. For instance, the card must be birthday-themed if it's a birthday. However, this doesn’t mean you should pick the cliche birthday cards full of balloon and cake images.

You can get the card personalized. Some excellent ideas include adding their picture, favorite team, or something you’re sure they’ll like. This approach shows that you put thought into the process and didn’t just pick the first thing you came across.

Next, you’ll want to ensure you write the right words. Here is where creativity comes in. Give it a spin. After all, all you want is to make the recipient feel special, right?

Whether it’s a sympathy card, anniversary card, or any type of card, it needs to have personal appeal such that once the recipient receives their flowers, they know it definitely came from you.

Remember, context is vital in putting your thoughts down on the card. Luckily, there are no rules here. Whatever you say, as long as it’s from the heart, will most likely be greatly appreciated.


All in all, you can never go wrong when sending flowers to your loved ones. Keeping the above pointers in mind will make it easier for you to go out and choose the perfect flowers for anyone you wish. Don’t wing it and risk not getting the desired result.
