Flower delivery is a great way to raise your popularity among friends, family, and loved ones. What could be better than a perfectly timed bouquet or flower arrangement delivered to that special someone's home or workplace? It can be easier and faster than sending a card, and it's a great way to show that person how much you really care about them.

Of course, flower delivery requires a bit of research and decision-making on your part. What local florists offer flower delivery? Where and when do you need to have the flowers delivered? And most importantly: what flowers are you going to choose? With the proliferation of national (and even international) flower delivery companies, it is easier than ever to make these decisions and get your order going in a matter of minutes.

Common Flower Delivery Decisions

For those who consider themselves "flower experts," taking care of flower delivery is usually a piece of cake. They call a florist (or find one online) with their order ready-to-go-- the only problem they might run into is whether or not the florist has everything they want in stock. Those are the lucky ones. Everyone else (myself included) needs some help from the florist in deciding what to buy.

Luckily, most florists keep a catalog of standard bouquets, baskets, and arrangements that you can choose from. This can be good for both you and the florist- a lot of the guesswork is taken away from you, and the florist is able to put together an arrangement that they're familiar with. This reduces the chance that you or your loved one will be disappointed when the flowers are finally delivered.

If you find a good flower delivery company, you can also work with them to create the perfect customized flower arrangement. They will be able to tell you which flowers are popular for specific occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, or holidays. If you tell them a bit about the person you're sending the flowers to, they may even be able to customize the arrangement to that person's personality.

Flower Delivery Possibilities

Typically, flower delivery companies offer several different ways of putting together their flowers. The simplest option is the old-fashioned flower bouquet, which is typically a small bunch of flowers tied together with a nice ribbon or string. Bouquets are cheap, small, and simple, but can be a lovely way to express your feelings.

Another option is to order a larger "flower arrangement." This is kind of a vague term, but it usually refers to something larger than a bouquet. And an arrangement typically contains a several different types of flowers, while a bouquet can contain only one. Arrangements are nice because they are more complex; a well-designed arrangement can create a more subtle statement and can truly become the centerpiece of a room.

Another great possibility for flower delivery is to send your loved one a flower basket. Flower baskets contain an arrangement put together inside a round or U-shaped basket, and are great because of their portability. If you send a flower basket to someone who is at work, they will be able to easily carry it home with them. This might be more difficult if you've ordered a bouquet or arrangement that has to be put into a water-filled vase.
