Beloved Flower Lover,
What’s Easier to Say, I am sorry or Thank you?
You will be so surprised to find out the answer
Well apparently for most Americans, it is harder to say, “Thank you” than “I’m sorry.” According to a February 2006 poll by International Communications Research, nearly two-thirds of respondents (65%) believe that saying “I’m sorry” is easy, while about the same number (67%) of Americans can remember a time when they were not properly thanked for a favor or act of kindness.
We wonder what that would be in the UK? Europe?Carribbean? Africa? Asia? We wonder, We really do.
Some experts believes that expressing all kinds of emotions should be easy, especially for those who can’t find the words.
“In the 21st century, with so many different ways to communicate without even using words – email, voicemail, text messaging – it’s amazing that people don’t routinely acknowledge the kindness of others in one way or another,” say some of the team from the London Flower Lover. “A simple ‘thank you’ or ‘I’m sorry’ can go a long way. Better yet, sending flowers helps you convey any message with added sincerity.”
Five of the most common reasons people send flowers are to say thank you, I’m sorry, congratulations, get well and express sympathy.
Ask the London Flower Lover or your local florist for an arrangement conveying a casual, hand-picked feeling, to say thank you with a very personal touch. In addition to a beautiful statement of thanks, the accompanying note card can say everything that is too hard to say in person. Take a deep breath and do it, it may be far easier than you think.
Flowers are the traditional gift to get out of the doghouse because they easily make the statement, “I was wrong.” To apologize with sincerity, ask the London Flower Lover or your local florist for a nostalgic arrangement, using a blend of delicate warm and cool lavenders and pinks. Having opened the door to forgiveness, follow the delivery up with a phone call. That should be sweet.
A bouquet of bold, contrasting colours is a fun-loving, playful way to say “Congratulations,” “Welcome home,” or “Great job.” We suggest that you can even get creative with the container. For example, if a friend just got a new job, ask the London Flower Lover or your local florist to put the bouquet in a fun pencil holder or something that represents the occasion.
It’s never easy comforting someone who has lost a loved one, but flowers can say what is often difficult to ex press in words. Flowers are usually sent to the home to provide warmth and beauty to the service. If a service is not planned, grief experts recommend sending condolences to the bereaved person’s home. The London Flower Lover has tips for the best sort of arrangements.
We also suggest, that you choose a serene colour scheme of light shades of green, misty blues and other cool hues to provide a moment of calm and let someone who is ill know you’re thinking of them. When sending flowers to a hospital, it’s helpful to have the name of the hospital, the patient’s name and room number ready for the London Flower Lover or your local florist. It’s also good to know the hospital’s flower policy. The London Flower Lover or your local florist twill know about the hospitals in your area.
