As greater numbers of people become comfortable shopping online, many people have found it easier to use online flower delivery services. Most online florists have access to a larger inventory then local florists. And because of special relationships with flower growers, buying flowers online is also much more affordable. This also means that when you send flowers online, the flowers are fresher and last longer than traditional flower shops.

Valentine Day's, Mother's Day, and Christmas are the largest floral holidays, respectively. However, many people send birthday flowers, funeral flowers, anniversary flowers or red roses to friends and loved ones.

Traditionally, red roses and rose bouquets are sent for Valentine's Day. But you can spice up the flower arrangement by selecting roses of unique colors. Consider This, your wife or girlfriend might appreciate 24 long stem pastel roses instead of red roses. Also white, pink, peach, yellow and mini multi-colored roses generate a lasting impression if you know that is their favorite color.

Birthdays are the ideal time to send flowers for men. Many men act like they are "allergic" to flowers so you might decide to order them a nice gift basket or bonsai plant instead of sending birthday flowers. Bonsai Plants make a great gift for men as they come in several different types. Varieties like the Brazilian Rain Tree, the traditional Korean Hornbeam, or the Dwarf Mugo Pine are sturdy plants that will last for several birthdays to come.

Sending flowers for Mothers Day is a long held tradition going back several centuries. But it wasn't until 1914, that Mother's Day became an official holiday in the United States of America. Ever since President Wilson's official proclaimation, sending your mom, wife, and daughter flowers has become one of the most common practices to celebrate any holiday. Unfortunately, some people wait until the last moment to buy Mother's Day flowers, and end up having a very limited selection of floral arrangements to choose from. Be sure to mark your calender or electronic reminder service to alert you a couple weeks in advance. This way you will recieve first priority on what day and hour you want the flowers delivered. If you wait until the Monday before Mother's Day, there's a high likelihood that your florist will already be booked and your mother may get their flowers on the following Monday. A definite no-no.

For somber occasions, such as a family or friend passing, sympathy flowers or funeral flowers and plants always make a heart-felt empathy gift. Remember when sending flowers to a funeral home or parlor, the director detaches the personalized card from the sympathy flowers arrangement and releases them to the bereaved all together. If you are worried about this, you can have a tasteful arrangement, gift basket, or plant sent directly to their home. It's never too late to send a greeting of comfort and remembrance in loving memory.

If you need to send flowers for delivery in another country, most online florists also specialize in sending flowers across borders. And with an ever-expanding internet, you can find a quality, trusted florist you can use and recommend to others for years to come.
