Delivery FAQ's

Bussey's Florist - Frequently Asked Questions

 

Hospital Flower Delivery

Q: Is it true that flowers are good for your health?

A: According to Dr. Andrew Weil, a noted health expert and author of 8 Weeks to Optimum Health, flowers are important to our sense of well-being and possess a holistic quality. Flower essences are prominent in the practice of aromatherapy.

 

Q: What do I need to know if I am ordering flowers for a hospital?

A: The most important information to be aware of is the hospital name and the patient name, the room number (if possible), and the delivery date. It would also be helpful if you new the patient’s release date and the hospital’s policy regarding flower deliveries. Some hospitals prohibit flowers in certain areas such as intensive care. Items such as balloons and fruits are also prohibited from certain hospitals and sections.

 

Q: Is it o.k. to wait and send flowers once someone has returned home from the hospital?

A: Yes. It is much more common today for patients to recover from illness and injury at home due to rising hospital costs. Patients look forward to the comfort and convenience of their home and flowers are a great way to let someone know you are thinking of them during this time.

 

Q: Is it appropriate to send flowers to someone who is just sick in bed or feeling down?

A: Absolutely. Flowers could be the best medicine in lifting someone’s spirits or speeding up a recovery whether they are under the weather or having a bad day.!

 

Sympathy Flower Delivery

Q: What is the best style for a funeral arrangement? How do I order a "special" design?

A: Highly personalized sympathy tributes depicting an aspect of a person’s life are very popular. If he loved the outdoors, perhaps a funeral piece including branches and natural materials would be best. If she was a gardener, maybe a tribute with a collection of garden flowers would be best. The key to ordering a unique design is to give the florist a few hints about the deceased or about yourself.

 

Q: If the death notice mentions a charitable donation is it still appropriate to send flowers?

A: Flowers help say what is often difficult to express. This is why it is always appropriate and in good taste to send an arrangement. It adds warmth to the service and provides the emotional support so important to the family at this time.

 

Q: Is it appropriate to send flowers to the family’s home?

A: Sending flowers to the home is a thoughtful way to express your condolences. While some people choose to send flowers to the home immediately, others prefer to wait a week or longer. In the weeks after the service, sending flowers can be a comforting gesture that you haven’t forgotten.

 

Q: If several of us want to send flowers together, how do we sign our names so that the family knows how to thank us?

A: There should room on the enclosure card for several names; however, if there are more than a few, it is best to sign the card as a group, such as "Your Friends in Shipping" or "The Jones Family". It is also wise to include a contact name and address on the card so the family can properly thank you.

 

Q: What is appropriate to send for a cremation?

A: A tastefully designed floral tribute adds beauty to any type of memorial. Families usually have a piece made especially for display next to the urn. Florists in many areas may have specific suggestions for arrangements.

Q: What information should I have ready before I call the florist?

A: Be sure to know the recipients full name, address, and phone number. It is also helpful to have the company name, work number, and work hours if you are delivering to their work address. The ordering will also be much quicker if you have your payment information ready and your enclosure card message written out.

 

Tips For Men Ordering Flowers

Be Spontaneous.

You don't have to wait for a special occasion to give flowers. In fact, flowers given for no reason other than "I was thinking of you today" mean much more because they are unexpected.

 

Don't Overlook Anyone.

A bouquet can express a range of feelings -- from romantic to friendly to something in between. Your wife or sweetheart will love to receive a surprise gift of flowers. So will your mother, daughter, sister, and friends.

 

Try Something New.

Women are interested in a wide variety of flowers and colors. So, when giving roses, consider pink, peach, yellow, white, or assorted colors to catch her attention. And, remember, most women appreciate a beautiful assortment of fresh flowers, as well as roses.

 

Get More Bloom For The Buck.

The prices of some flowers vary seasonally. Roses, for example, are usually a great value during summer months. In the winter, mixed bouquets may be a better way to go.

 

Flowers Are Never Boring.

Because of their infinite diversity and unique appeal, flowers never lose their specialness. Each new floral arrangement is a fresh and individual declaration of appreciation -- reflecting positively on your imagination and thoughtfulness.

 

Flowers Don't Have To Mean Commitment.

Relax, guys. Women know when an arrangement simply means that you care.

 

Be Prepared.

When ordering flowers, have ready the recipient's name, address, and phone number. If you're not sure what to order, ask for assistance.

 

Get Professional Help.

Selecting flowers may be a bewildering experience for the uninitiated man. Fortunately, help is available. Consult your professional florist for a special arrangement that will match both your sentiment and her personality.

Every woman can remember the last time she got flowers!

Tips For Women Ordering Flowers

One of the biggest concerns that a woman has when choosing a gift for a man is how he would react to receiving flowers. It may come as a surprise that in a recent survey conducted by the Society of American Florists, over 60% of men surveyed said that they would like to receive flowers on Valentines Day. This hardly seems shocking when you think about the reason behind this occurrence - men like to receive flowers for the same reason that they send them... to be recognized.

 

All of us like to feel special, however, it requires a bit more tact when you send flowers to a man. First, when selecting flowers, stick to vivid hues such as orange, red, purple, bright yellow and gold. Men respond best to bright, powerful colors. Avoid pastels or traditional "feminine" designs. If you are unsure about the types of flowers you can always start off by sending a plant or dish garden.

 

Second, it is best to send contemporary or exotic arrangements. Linear or natural styles are better received than "fluffy" ones. In selecting an arrangement you can also try to incorporate his favorite hobby into the design. If he is a golfer you can include a box of golf balls. If he is into cars, maybe a car magazine should be tucked in.

 

Third, when choosing the right time to send him flowers, think about the occasions on which he sends you flowers. If he sends you flowers for your birthday or your anniversary, maybe those would be good times to send flowers to him. And don't forget about Valentines Day, a promotion, or as a host gift at one of his parties.

 

Florists have known for decades that men love flowers, and today there is an increasing trend of men buying flowers for their own homes and offices. They too like a bright arrangement on their desk or fragrant flowers in their foyer.
