When your loved one is in the hospital, bring a smile to their face can make such a difference. A beautiful floral arrangement is sure to brighten anyone’s day! Whether injured or sick, the drab walls of a hospital room can make healing more difficult. Choosing a display of vivid flowers in bright colors and subtle fragrances can bring a bit of nature indoors.
The experts at Schaaf Floral in the Minneapolis area have been sending get-well floral designs for many years. When selecting a bouquet, keep these tips from Schaaf Floral in mind.
Choosing Get-Well Bouquets for Hospital Delivery
- Choose easy-care flowers. Many types of flowers will stay bright and lovely in low light with just a little water. Choosing a clear vase will help monitor the water levels daily. The Pretty In Pink Bouquet with delicate, pink roses and bright white daisies in a pink glass vase would be an easy bouquet to care for.
- Select allergy-free blooms. Hypoallergenic flowers such as carnations, hydrangeas, and orchids are among the varieties of flowers that will be friendly to those who might have allergy issues.
- Choose smaller bouquets. Large arrangements can be hard to move and get in the way of health care workers who are trying to do their job. Smaller arrangements are mobile and easy to take home when the patient is released. The Lavender Sunset Bouquet includes a clear glass vase that would make this arrangement portable.
- Opt for bright colors. To add cheer to the room, select a bouquet that includes bright colors that stand out. Our Gerbs Galore Bouquet includes vibrant yellow and orange Gerbera daisies that are sure to bring joy to a room.
- Choose flowers that come in durable containers. In a busy hospital room, it would be easy for flowers to get bumped, moved, or even dropped. Sending flowers in a sturdy container will ensure they’re protected in case something like this happens.

Selecting small flower arrangements for patients while in the hospital makes sense because so many hospital rooms are small. A few well-placed bouquets will bring color into the room and joy into the heart of your loved one.
