The average person spends 7.6 hours a day at work. Take the grey out of someone’s day by surprising them with a bright, cheerful floral arrangement delivered to their office.
When sending a floral arrangement or potted plant to an office, consider the following:
- Special occasion or just for fun?
- Size of office/space available
- Is there natural light? (Important if sending a plant.)
Flowers for any occasion
The floral professionals at Zeidlers Flowers can help you select the perfect arrangement for any occasion, any day. For birthdays, consider a unique creation brimming with colorful blooms and tasty snacks such as the Flowers & Snacks arrangement. Another great birthday option is a flowering begonia plant with a Happy Birthday balloon — after the birthday, the begonias will still be around to brighten her desk.
If sending an arrangement just for fun, you can’t go wrong with the Rainbow Sherbet arrangement. It’s filled with spectacular colors of yellow, hot pink, orange and blue. The carnations, roses, Gerbera daisies, delphinium, buttons, purple statice and hypericum berries fill a stylish clear-glass, rectangular vase tied with a sherbet-colored bow.
Display space: large or limited?
Think about the office space before ordering an arrangement. Does the recipient work in a cubicle with limited desk space, at a large reception area, or in their own private office?
For limited space, consider a cheerful smiley-face mug filled with yellow and white flowers or an elegant, petite vase that holds gorgeous alstroemeria blooms and seeded eucalyptus. Standing 10 inches high and only 5 inches wide, this arrangement is ideal for any space.
Potted plant tips
When sending a potted plant to surprise someone in an office, keep in mind if the office space has any natural light. Some plants won’t thrive without ample sunlight, so those varieties would not be the best choice for an office without any windows. Great plants for an office include:
- Boston ferns
- English ivy
- Peace lily
- Spider plants
- Bonsai trees
- Arcola plant
Also consider sending a lucky bamboo plant (perfect for someone starting a new job), a cacti arrangement, or a potted ficus tree, which makes for a great gift for the opening of a new business. A blooming plant to consider is a Gerbera daisy, which does require sunlight but offers bright, cheerful blooms and is easy to care for.
