Here are four quick tips for when you are sending get-well arrangements to someone in the hospital:
1. Stay away from highly fragrant flowers – strong fragrances can be difficult in a small room, and even if they like them, if they have a roommate, that person may not.
2. The arrangement will have a bigger impact if it is one-sided. The flowers will likely be up against a wall, or sitting where the person who receives them will see only one side.
3. If they are in ICU, fresh flowers and plants will have to wait until they are in a regular room – your florist can deliver stuffed animals, balloons and/or a full-sized greeting card.
4. Think about their style and personality and ask for a design to be made that really fits who they are – they will feel so special!
