Have you ever sent someone flowers and given the florist specific instructions as to what you wanted sent and then always wondered what exactly WAS sent? Or maybe you didn't tell them what you wanted, but just wondered what that $50 got you? LOL And who wants to ask the recipient, "hey, what DID those flowers look like, anyway?"
I heard this suggestion on the radio and thought it was a great idea and wanted to pass it along.
If you RECEIVE flowers, enclose a photo of the flowers inside the thank you note. Sounds so common sense, doesn't it?
If you received flowers for having a new baby, take a picture with your baby beside the flowers. A) Everyone wants to see the baby and feel like they got a special first look at him/her and B) they get to see the flowers they purchased and C) you're taking care of a thank you note!
So easy and the receiver will love seeing the flowers that were sent in their name.
Speaking of hearing suggestions on the radio... Celebrations.com (a member of the 1-800-Flowers family of brands) has invited me to be a guest on their radio show tomorrow. This show is hosted by the TV Host Jeanne Benedict of the DIY Network's Weekend Entertaining. I'll be talking about end of summer party centerpieces!
