Anyone know a Place I can order Flowers from and have them sent to the Hospital

post #1 of 17

We would like to send our Stepmom Flowers and a Card. Is it ok to have them sent to the Hospital? What is a good place to send them from?

Would FTD be able to do that?

I'm pretty sure just about any florist will do that... you may want to contact the hospital to make sure the flowers are ok (or if they have and restrictions - like I know a lot of hospitals won't allow latex balloons only mylar, so check) and how to report the address/room number to the florist

Flowers are the only thing that can be delivered to hospitals.

I found that out when I was trying to send my son a gift of edible arrangements for his birthday. He works at the hospital.

You should call the hospital to check it out. If flowers are allowed, any FTD florist can do your order for you. I've also sent fruit baskets (to our men friends) through my FTD florist. You would need to find out if the hospital allowed fruit - some do, some don't and it would also depend on the illness being treated.

Fruit baskets wouldn't be a good idea for a stroke victim, but flowers should be fine. Just about any florist can do that, provided you have the full address, including the room number. I've even sent flowers from overseas with no trouble at all.

Just google! When I was in hospital this year, I had heaps of flowers delivered from Australia. Apparently they just googled the hospital name and flower delivery, and voila - flowers!

Glad you told me I was looking at Edible Arrangements too. I will ask my Dad what is allowed when I talk to him.

Edible arrangements are a No Go to hospitals. UPS, FedEx or DHL can't deliver flowers,fruit or gifts to hospitals.

Usually the hospital has a flower room you can order from and someone take the flowers to the room. Otherwise I know Hy-Vee does it!

It depends on the hospital and the illness involved. I have been able to send fruit baskets to hospitals here in the Toronto area. Naturally, I cannot speak for other areas but it's something you can check out. I've found that men prefer fruit baskets to flowers - I can't imagine why! Most florists have their own delivery vehicles so deliveries are not done by UPS, FEDEX or other courier. If you go with FTD florists they can get your order anywhere in the world.

A lot of stroke victims have trouble swallowing at first, which is why I said fruit wouldn't be a good idea.

Your best bet is to call and ask what is/is not allowed. Different hospitals, even different floors in the same hospital, allow different things. Edible baskets can be a good idea, but since she had a stroke, she may not be able to swallow as well yet. The last hospital I worked at allowed flowers, on certain floors, allowed fruit baskets, on certain floors, and allowed balloons of any type depending on the allergies of the patient.

1-800- Flowers
FTD
and Teleflora

Our of the bunch (And as a florist) i'd recommend FTD. Just understand that they will substitute flowers for what they have in stock if they need to and you may wanna call around and get a few references to see if people like the quality of their work or not. Not all florists are good designers- i've seen quite a few bad pieces- but the good designers are worth their weight in gold

I'm sure not matter what you choose your friend will like it.
