A Great Way to Send Flowers
by: Morgan Hamilton
Men giving flowers to women probably goes way back to around somewhere near the dawn of man. It is really easy to understand why women adore flower so. They are beautiful to look at and very sweet to smell. Though they’re sometimes considered a bit cliché, sending flowers has been a standby in romantic relationships since the dawn of time.
Granted, some of this predisposition toward flower-giving is more than likely a part of culture we come from as depicted in nearly every old movie and television show. I can recall the husband or boyfriend usually always showing up with the ubiquitous bouquet of flowers when he knows he’s done something wrong. A man's way of paying penance. Nonetheless, flowers make up an aspect of adornment and decoration in almost every culture worldwide, so there must be something universally attractive about them.
If you’ve ever tried to purchase flowers from a florist, especially near Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day, you know you want universal fact, they can be quite expensive. But if you think about it, isn't that high cost justified? Ever attempted growing an orchid or a calla lily? There is nothing easy about it. There’s always the option of swinging by the park or your neighbor’s garden and helping yourself to whatever flowers are in season, but getting arrested or whacked over the head with a rolling pin isn't very appealing.
How and where you get your flowers can be a bit of a challenge, it’s never been easier to send flowers. Telflora caught on to the idea early, allowing you to send flowers from anywhere in the U.S. with a phone number, and address, and a credit card. FTD saw that winning business model and ran with it as well, and now the vast majority of florists will send flowers for you as long as the recipient is within a reasonable distance. The delivery the also, of course, costs extra.
With the popularity of e-commerce it’s not surprising to know that most florists, especially larger chains, allow you to send flowers by ordering them online. This is a great way for you to pick out the various flowers that they have in their inventory without having to actually visit the florist. Although few things are more pleasant than the sights and smells of a well-stocked florist. Complex, pre-made arrangements are also a lot easier to visualize and decide upon when you can see a photo of them on your computer screen. When it is time for you to send flowers, I suggest you first at least take a look at the Internet so you will have an idea of what you like to send.
