When you order flowers in an arrangement, they usually come in a vase, basket or some other container. We were recently asked if sending flowers with no vase is possible. Why would you want to send flowers with no vase? Maybe you don’t want to clutter up the recipient’s house with yet another vase. Maybe they have their own ideas on interior design. Or, maybe you’re having the flowers delivered to them at the end of their triumphant performance on stage. Whatever the reason, you’ll be delighted to hear that sending flowers not in a vase is indeed possible, and here’s how to do it. We’ll use as an example ordering flowers through our recommended online florist (FlowersFast.com), and tell you how to send flowers with no vase.
Say you’re on the FlowersFast web site, and you want to send some birthday flowers (click on either the tab just below the logo at the top of the page, or on the birthday link a little down the left hand side.)
Let’s suppose you decide to send the Sunshine Splendor Bouquet. Click on the order now link (the red oval on the right hand side of the page), and after filling in your billing information and the delivery address, you’ll see as you scroll down, just below the area where you enter the message you’d like to send on the enclosed card, an area for special comments. In this area you can type “no vase – please just wrap,” or words to that effect, and the florist will know that you would like the flowers delivered without a vase, wrapped and tied.
Alternatively, you can choose a Florist Designed Wrapped Bouquet, and let the florist design something from the best seasonal flowers they have on hand. Another option is to decide how much you’d like to spend, and choose a “special request”, and letting the florist know (again, in the special instructions area on the order page) if you’d like any particular flowers, or colors, in your bouquet.
If your recipient would prefer to receive your thoughtful gift of flowers wrapped and tied, giving them the freedom to choose how to display them, you now know how to send flowers without a vase, by giving the florist special instructions.
