Flowers for your summer host

If you are planning on visiting a friend or loved one during the summer, you want to make sure that you show them how much you appreciate their hospitality. While they might not be willing to accept financial compensation (like paying for accommodation), they will not be able to refuse a thoughtful bouquet of fresh flowers.

Fresh flowers for your host should be selected based on their décor and preferences. A bright bunch of flowers like roses, gerbera daisies, hydrangeas, and sunflowers are all perfect. You can even ask your florist to combine several bright flowers and add a few green chrysanthemums instead of or along with some foliage.

If your host is always busy but you would like to give them a potted plant, then consider a succulent. Succelents are wonderfully hardy and they require the least amount of care of all plants. They will come potted in the right kind of soil and they will only need to be watered every few days. They don’t mind the heat or sun which means that they ca be displayed just about anywhere.

Orchids are an elegant gift and, if you know that your host has the time to tend to the plant on a daily basis, then you know this will be an appreciated gift. Orchids come in various colours and some are really easy to care for provided their basic needs are met every day. Unlike succulents, they cannot be neglected for several days. But if you make sure that they have a humid environment with the right amount of light.

Finally, don’t forget to ask your florist about optional extras like chocolates, a bottle of wine, or something to make your gift even more special. If you know when you are planning on returning home or continuing with your journey, you can place your flower order in advance. You can have it delivered just before or even after you leave – whichever you believe will prove to be a greater surprise.
