Fun Flower Facts
I need to send flowers to a hospital. What do I need to do?
If you order flowers to be delivered to a hospital, it's helpful to have the following ready when you call your florist: The name of the hospital, the patient's name, the room number (if possible), when you want the flowers delivered. It is also good to know if the hospital has a policy regarding flowers. For instance, most urgent care and intensive care units do not allow flowers. Sometimes hospital rooms have certain display areas for flowers, but they must be a specified size. We know all about the hospitals in our area so feel free to leave that up to us.
What are some creative flower ideas for my wedding reception?
Garland the center of the head table with flowers, foliage and votive candles. Use the bridesmaids' bouquets to create lavish buffet table decorations or to surround the cake. Have us create guest table centerpieces with 4-5 separate clusters of flowers so that each couple can take a part of the centerpiece home. Float large fragrant flowers, such as open roses or gardenias, in crystal containers with votive candles. Sprinkle rose petals on the cake table and walkways. Have the toss bouquet double as a cake top. Decorate goblets and cake knives with flowers. Use a cake plate with a mound of flowers on it as a centerpiece. Use roses to make a dome at the top of a glass bowl filled with pretty rocks, and place a wreath around the bowl to highlight it. Toss rose petals instead of rice as the bride and groom leave.
