We often think of flowers in the moment – when someone has a new baby or is celebrating a birthday, for instance. Once the moment has passed, we might assume that we have missed the window to congratulate someone, send our condolences, or recognize a major event. However, nothing can be further from the truth – in fact, sometimes sending flowers after the fact can be even more powerful than in the moment. At Zeidler’s Flowers, we hear the sentiments and gratitude all the time. We know something about flowers – their impact can be powerful no matter when you send them.
Here are some occasions that sending flowers “a little late” can actually turn out to be the perfect gesture for those you love.
Feeling Better Every Day – While people are in the hospital, they might receive a lot of flowers and visits from friends and family. But a floral bouquet or green plant sent to their home a week or two into recovery can make all the difference, and let them know that you wish them well on the continued road to health.
Still Thinking of You – A few weeks after a funeral can be a lonely time. The well-wishing guests have necessarily returned to their daily lives, but someone grieving is still very much feeling the loss. Sending flowers in the upcoming weeks and months is a special way to let them know that you are still very much thinking of them. Flowers on what would have been special occasions – birthdays or anniversaries, for instance – is also a meaningful gesture to let them know you remember their loved one.
Friends Forever – Love may come and go, but friends are forever. Let your friend know that although their relationship didn’t quite work out, that you have their back. Flowers to your newly single friends will let them know just how special they are.
I’ll Be Here All Year – So you missed their birthday. That’s ok – after all the festivities have died down, it’s always a bit of a let down to wait another whole year before being the center of attention again. Send flowers to accentuate that every day is a special day because they were born.
Creative Messaging – If you missed their promotion, send them a “Hope You Love Your New Job” bouquet. If you missed the birth of the baby, send a “How Are You Handling the Sleepless Nights?” bouquet. There are a million little reasons every day to bring a smile to someone’s face.
At Zeidler’s Flowers, we have seen the power of flowers to absolutely make someone’s day. No matter what the occasion – or for no occasion at all – it is never a bad time to send flowers. Browse our website or stop by our Evansville shop to explore the endless possibilities for yourself.
