Whether your loved one is home sick, in the hospital awaiting a procedure, or recuperating from an injury – studies show that being cooped up or immobile can cause depression and anxiety. Conversely, flowers have been shown to cause immediate improvements in overall happiness and contentment. Therefore, get well bouquets are the perfect antidote when your loved ones are not feeling well. At City Line Florist, we have the flowers, plants and gifts you’ll need to brighten someone’s day.
What Flowers are Best? If you are bringing a bouquet to someone’s home, choose bright and cheerful colors. Yellow is the most popular shade to convey good wishes and good cheer, but other spring colors – such as orange, pink, and purple – also make wonderful get well bouquets sure to make them smile.
If your friend or family member is in the hospital, it is best to call to confirm the medical center’s rules. Sometimes, depending on the nature of the illness, flowers may be prohibited. However, if get well bouquets and gifts are permissible, we recommend tulips and daisies – they have no scent, are vivid and happy, and are easy to maintain.
What’s The Smell? Be aware that fragrant flowers, such as lilacs and lilies, are discouraged at most hospitals.
Green plants are known to purify the air and promote a general sense of well-being; as such they make appropriate get well gifts. Flowering plants, dish gardens, orchids and bromeliads are also long lasting gifts that will make a beautiful impression.
The floral designers at City Line Florist have delivered to all of the local hospitals and nursing homes in the Trumbull and Fairfield areas, and we will be happy to help you with any questions you may have. If your loved one needs encouragement during an illness, send flowers, and let them know how much you care.
