The Victorian Ages had a great impact on the way we see, admire, and utilize flowers today. One way history has played a role in the beautiful world of floral is by sending blooms to express emotions. As people in the 1800s rarely communicated their feelings, they let the symbolism of flowers do the talking for them. Sending beautiful and uplifting blooms are perfect to say “get well soon,” “stay positive,” and “I love you.” Coordinating a special floral delivery from the heart has become as common as sending a holiday card or birthday gift.  

If a loved one is admitted to the hospital, feeling ill, or healing from surgery, it’s customary to send a wonderful flower arrangement or even a lovely green plant. If you’re looking to express feelings of hope, love, and encouragement to get-well-soon, our team here at Expressions Unlimited, the best florist in Greenville, is ready to help you find the perfect blooms. 

Royal Grace combines the brightness of yellow with the smoothness of purple to create a wonderful bouquet that is bold and bright. Purple Iris have both colors in them and unite the design. Elegant roses and lilies are used along with garden favorites, miniature hydrangeas and daisies. The lilies and iris will be in various stages of bloom so that the recipient gets to enjoy them open and show their full beauty. Regal liatris brings height to the all around bouquet that is created in a clear glass vase.

Benefits of Live Plants 

Other than their beautiful and cheerful symbolism, get-well flowers are proven to lessen the length of a patient’s hospital stay. Green plants, like succulents, peace lilies, and dish gardens, can help circulate the air and freshen up a drab hospital room. In addition, plants and flowers promote calming effects that ease stress, anxiety, and blood pressure, which allows for a quicker healing process.

Selecting the Best Blooms 

If you’re not sure where to begin as you search for the perfect get-well flowers,  perhaps start with something small, durable, fragrance or allergy-free, and low maintenance. These tips will ensure that your beautiful surprise will stay healthy and intact for as long as possible. You may also want to select the most vibrant and colorful blooms to add cheer and energy to your loved one’s hospital room.  

Meaningful Alternatives to Floral Arrangements 

Before coordinating your delivery with your florist, make sure to confirm that flowers and plants are allowed in your loved one’s hospital room. Some floors and medical facilities don’t allow fresh blooms or plants. In this case, we have you covered with a great selection of joyful balloons, stuffed animals for comfort, and thoughtful gift baskets. A lovely get-well card is always a great idea to send well wishes for a speedy recovery and brighten up their day with your meaningful words.

Brighter Days is a bouquet that is sure to bring a smile to their face. An assortment of bright primary colors that include flowers like Roses, Carnations and Chrysanthemums. The size is perfect for a bedside table or desk. Presented in a clear glass vase along with assorted greenery.

Questions for the Hospital 

Like most things, communication is key for a smooth surprise delivery. Make sure you discuss your plans with the hospital or medical facility before moving forward with your florist. It’s important to ask the hospital these three things, “what is your delivery policy,” “is there a preferred delivery time,” and “is this patient able to receive live plants or flowers?” Once you have this information you can then confirm with your florist and begin planning. 

Coordinating with Your Florist 

Once you have all the details from the hospital, your florist will need to gather information for their delivery. Make sure to tell them the full name of your loved one, the hospital’s address, and the floor and room number where the blooms are being delivered to. In addition, make sure they are aware of any special instructions or requests from the hospital. Finally, don’t forget to send a thoughtful get-well message along with your arrangement. 

Let your friends here at Expressions Unlimited help make the process of delivering flowers to the hospital or medical facility easy and smooth. We can even give you a hand with finding the perfect words to complete their get-well surprise.
