Get Well Flowers Colours
The colours of get-well flowers make such a big difference in lifting a loved one’s mood, so definitely go for happy colours such as yellows, oranges, pinks, red, purples mixed together with a soft white if you want to go for a bright combination of colours. At Fig & Bloom, we love nothing more than arranging bold and happy bunches of flowers, so if you have a few colours in mind we will put together the most perfect get-well flowers.
We say low maintenance because whenever someone is in hospital, or in the comfort of their own home recovering, means the flowers you choose will not only last longer during that person’s recovery but it means there is little energy needed to put into looking after these flowers.
Allergy Friendly Flowers
Allergy-free is a good one to keep in mind when sending get-well flowers for lots of reasons! Some people may have allergies to flowers, whether that’s medical professionals, friends or family, so it is usually a safe option to pick flowers that are hypoallergenic.
Choosing flowers in a durable size or vase is certainly a good tip to have in mind when sending flowers to someone who’s unwell. Sometimes we like to send BIG gorgeous flowers bunches wrapped up and they look simply beautiful, however, these flowers are more suitable for birthdays or for other special occasions whereas if you go for flowers that are either a smaller size, or come in a durable container or vase, they more manageable and safer in a hospital room or in your loved one’s home.
