Sending Flowers For Christmas? Here’s What Your Florist Should Know

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin. Christmas is the time to send lovely bouquets of flowers to loved ones down the street or across the country. Florists bring flowers to life in spectacular arrangements filled with the red, green and white colors of Christmas (plus a few non-traditional beauties as well).

With the popularity of sending Christmas flowers, it’s important to know what information your florist needs to deliver your order smoothly. You don’t have to worry about getting lost in the shuffle. No, nothing like that. It’s just important to keep I’s dotted and T’s crossed during one of florists’ busiest holidays.

To get your Christmas flowers delivered more promptly than if they came on Santa’s sleigh, remember to include the following information when speaking with your florist.

  • Recipient’s Name – Seems like a no-brainer but trust us. Sillier omissions have been made.
  • Recipient’s Address – If your loved one is staying out of town for the holidays, have the address of their other location. This will prevent flowers being left in the cold or returned to the flower shop because no person was available when the delivery was attempted.
  • Recipient’s Phone – This is particularly important to the driver who may need permission to access the premises, help locating the address, etc.
  • Consumer’s Phone – This is your telephone number. Though rare, the florist filling your order may need to contact you regarding flower substitutions, unsuccessful delivery attempts, and other similar events.
  • Allergic Information (if applicable) – If the recipient is allergic to a particular flower, your florist should be given this information.
  • Special Instructions – Special instructions vary and are not always mandatory. Special instructions can include a requested delivery time, allergic information, an alternate address, delivery instructions for an apartment complex and more.

This may seem like a lot of information but take heart. Ordering Christmas flowers from your local florist (or your loved one’s local florist) is quick and painless. All it takes is a quick phone to the florist or you can order Christmas flowers online from a local florist using Flower Shop Network.

We wish you a merry Christmas and happy new year!
