Sending flowers is a timeless gesture that can brighten someone’s day and show them that you care. Whether it’s for a special occasion or just to say “thank you,” flowers are a classic gift that can make a lasting impression. In this blog post, we’ll explore some tips for sending flowers that can help you to choose the right arrangement and make the process as smooth as possible!
- Choose the right occasion
When sending flowers, it’s important to choose the right occasion and type of flowers. This can help you to select the perfect arrangement that will match the sentiment of the occasion. Some popular occasions for sending flowers include birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and sympathy. As flowers each have their own meaning, it is important to know what flowers would be the best to send. If you know the recipients flower preference, then this selection can generally be pretty easy. But if you are unsure, our expert florists are always happy to help.
- Research your options
Before sending flowers, it’s a good idea to research your options and find a reputable florist that can deliver high-quality flowers. This is probably the most important step in the process. Most people think that all florists are the same, but this is definitely not the case. Florists can have vastly different styles, stock different flowers and offer different services. It is important you choose a florist that can help you to ensure the recipient receives a beautiful arrangement that will last as long as possible. A good tip is to look for a florist with great reviews! We are proud to say that at the time of writing this, we have 103 Google reviews with a perfect 5 star rating. Beautiful flowers and excellent customer service throughout the Illawarra is something we take very seriously.
- Include a personalised message
Adding a personalised message to your flowers helps to make the gesture even more special and show the recipient that you put thought into the gift. Consider including a heartfelt message that expresses your feelings and shows your appreciation. Oh, and always remember to include your name if you want the recipient to know who they were from. At Ruby Oak Floristry, we write your personalised message out exactly how you typed it in. As some people like to send flowers but remain anonymous, if your name is not written on your message, we will not include it.
- Consider the recipient’s preferences
When choosing an arrangement, consider the recipient’s preferences and tastes. This can help you to select an arrangement that they will truly love and appreciate. For example, if the recipient loves roses, consider sending a bouquet of their favourite colour. Tulips and Poppies are always a popular choice throughout the Illawarra when they are in season.
- Follow up
At Ruby Oak Floristry, we keep you in the loop from start to finish. Once you have ordered your flowers, you will receive a confirmation email. On the day of delivery, we will take a photo of your flowers and send this to you via a text message, and once they are delivered, we will send you an email saying your order is now complete. It’s a good idea to follow up with the recipient to ensure that they received the arrangement. It is not unusual for the wrong delivery address to be supplied. If the home owner is not home, our florists leave the flowers somewhere safe at the door. If this was the wrong house, it can take a while before we find out. There are also a lot of units in Wollongong which can add to the complexity of delivery as there is usually nowhere safe to leave the flower bouquet.
In conclusion, sending flowers is a thoughtful gesture that can show someone that you care, and they are never a bad option.
