If you know somebody who is struggling, the right bouquet of blooms could be just what they need to turn that frown upside down. If you want to send flowers to somebody special but you don’t know which ones will put a smile on their face, here are some tips to keep in mind.
The right colours
Bright colours have an energizing effect while cool colours have a soothing effect. Colours like yellow, orange and red create a warmer atmosphere and help the recipient feel more positive and energized. Alternatively, you could send flowers that are soothing. Blue, purple and green are a lovely example of calming colours. If you like, you could even combine the two. In other words, you could pair yellow with contrasting purple for something vibrant yet relaxing.
Types of blooms
Another important point to consider when you send flowers is the variety of blooms. You could choose a single type of flower or you could combine several flower types. Some of the most popular options include roses, lilies, carnations, tulips, sunflowers and orchids. These flowers are all available in several colours and many of them are available throughout the year thanks to importing and specialised cultivation. Consider blooms that look great on their own, like sunflowers. Alternatively, you could select flowers that pair well together like roses and lilies.
You can step up your floral gift even more by adding something extra to your flower order. When you send flowers, you can add something like luxury chocolates, a bright balloon or a cuddly bear. These gifts will make your gesture even more impressive and memorable.
Don’t forget the importance of considering the recipient’s personal preferences every time you send flowers. If, for example, you know that they are sensitive to pollen, you should choose flowers that have heavy pollen such as roses. Some lilies are also great because you can have the pollen removed before they are delivered.
When you send flowers to cheer somebody up, make sure that you include a special note too. Your words of encouragement are what will really make them smile. Make sure that your message is sincere and personal.
