When someone you love is in the hospital, you want to send them something to show you care. Cards, gifts, and especially flowers make a great offering and send messages of hope and love. But with so many floral designs to choose from, how can you know what will be best?
The professionals at Neubauer’s Flowers are excited to help you choose the perfect design and show you the best ways to get your flowers to your recipient seamlessly. Take a look at our tips, tricks and best practices for having flowers delivered to your local Uniontown area hospital or medical center.
How to Send Beautiful Get-Well Flowers
- Choose flowers that are long-lasting and low-maintenance. A fresh floral design that doesn’t require too much care will be a great addition to a hospital room. Something long-lasting will also be great to take home when your recipient is discharged.
- Choose flowers that are bright and happy. Bold, colorful flowers will provide the sunny encouragement your loved one might need as they recover. Plus, cheerful blooms will dress up a drab hospital room better than any other gift.
- Choose flowers that come in durable containers. While delicate, fragile vases can be beautiful, they could create a hazard in a hospital room. Opt for plastic, wood or wicker containers when choosing a get-well design, in case your arrangement is dropped, bumped or moved. Our Double Delight Design, a basketful of two African violets, is a perfect example of this option.
- Choose flowers in smaller arrangements. Larger designs can not only overwhelm a small hospital room, they can actually get in the way of medical professionals and their equipment. Opt for a more compact design that will work for everyone.
- Choose flowers that are allergy-free. Plants and flowers like hydrangea or orchids that do not give off strong fragrance or promote allergies will be a welcomed treat for your patient as well as the many individuals that will be in and out of their hospital room during their stay.

How to Choose Something Meaningful
Not only are flowers a beautiful gift when someone is not well, but they also can represent particular sentiments and messages for your recipient. Here are some of the more popular get-well flowers and the meanings they symbolize:
- Lilies: These trumpet-shaped blooms are often displayed in bright yellows or oranges and symbolize life and good fortune.
- Hydrangea: These fluffy cloud-like blooms add much texture to floral designs, and symbolize perseverance. What a great sentiment to send to someone in recovery.
- Sunflowers: Bright and sunny, these heady blooms represent sunny feelings of positivity and strength.
- Gerbera Daisies: These happy blooms are available in an array of colors and symbolize happiness and gratitude.
- Chrysanthemums: Even though mums come in a wide range of colors and varieties, these blooms stand for optimism, joy, and long life.
- Carnations: Representing love and good luck, carnations are a frilly, friendly bloom that will brighten any space. Take a look at the beauty of our Because You Are Special Bouquet, which features gerbera daisies, carnations, and chrysanthemums.
Because You Are Special Bouquet
No matter what kind of flowers you decide to send, it’s important to make sure the hospital is ready for your delivery. Ask them about recommended delivery times, and whether or not flowers can be sent to your recipient’s floor. Make sure you know your loved one’s room number, then be sure to communicate all of that information to your florist, along with the medical center’s full name and address, and your recipient’s full name and room number. The floral experts at Neubauer’s Flowers are glad to help make your get-well flower delivery a success and we’ll be happy to advise you further on any specifications you need. Give us a call so we can help you send your best wishes to your friends and loved ones.
