New Baby Flowers: What You Need to Know

A couple instantly realizes that their lives are forever changed once a new baby is born. The responsibility of caring for a new life is exciting and overwhelming. During this transitional time it’s important that you show your support and love to the new parents!

Flowers serve as a wonderful gift of encouragement. Their refreshing scent and beauty bring joy and happiness! Here is everything you need to know about sending new baby flowers.

When should I send a new mom flowers?

Since you won’t know the exact date of delivery, many people choose to wait until they have heard the news that the expecting mother is going into labor to order an arrangement. Ask your local florist what flower options there are for same-day delivery.

Some people suggest sending the flowers to the home of the new mother so that the parents have less to transport from the hospital. Choosing to have the flowers delivered to their home gives you the option of ordering the flowers in advance.

What type of flowers should I choose?

First you need to know if the new baby is a boy or girl. Knowing the gender is going to help you decide what color flowers to choose. If the parents are waiting to find out the gender until the baby is born, there are several neutral colors that are just as beautiful.

Pink, purple and pastels are always appropriate color choices for a baby girl. Lilies, roses, tulips and carnations are popular new baby flowers that are available in these colors. For a baby boy, blue and yellow flowers are typically chosen. Freesia, delphinium, iris and statice are all great options for a boy.

Can I still send flowers even after the baby has been born?

Of course! A few weeks after the baby is born the parents are going to be in need of some encouragement. Your kind gesture will show the new parents that they have friends willing to help.

What is an appropriate card message?

When writing your card message remember that the parents need encouragement, support and love. Here are some examples.

“You deserve every amount of happiness that this new baby is going to bring you!”

“I’m so excited for you as you embark on this new stage of life. Know that I am only a text or phone call away if you ever need me.”

“Congratulations! I can’t wait to see the beautiful person this baby becomes.”

“Welcome to the world, little one!”
