Many people I talk to want to send flowers, and yet aren't really sure what is appropriate or aren't sure what the person will like, etc. How do you decide what to send?
Most of us give things we would like to receive. Why not think about the person receiving them? Many of us don't really know their exact favorite flower or maybe not even their favorite color, and we might feel stuck in going 'safe' and getting a traditional design from a pick-from-a-number website.
Playing it safe gets you the 'thanks... this is nice...' phone call. Wouldn't you rather hear "Oh... Wow... I'm so excited! Thank you SO much! I can't believe how beautiful the flowers are!"
With just one or more clues from the following questions (or other ideas of what you know about the person), an experienced floral designer can make suggestions or even create a one-of-a-kind arrangement.
When you reflect something about the person in the gift, they feel more special!
They know it was selected just for them, and it goes straight to their heart, which is why you're sending the flowers anyway, right?
