Which Type of Flower Basket is Best to Send When a Baby is Born?

By: Amynutt
The arrival of a new baby is a joyous event and one that definitely warrants recognition. Sending a flower basket is a great way to welcome the new bundle of joy into the world. There are many different options and if you don`t know what to do, it can be pretty confusing trying to choose the right flower basket. Here are some tips on what to look for.

Which Color to Choose

Pink for girls and blue for boys is the usual choice, but it can be a little boring. If you want to spice things up a bit, opt for something like purple and white flowers for a baby girl and red for a boy. For a non-gender specific flower basket, go with the ever-so-sweet all white option. It`s innocent and beautiful and the new mom will be thrilled with it.

Flower Choices

When sending flowers, the flowers you choose are important. Delicate, aromatic flowers may be lovely, but they wilt and die very quickly. In order to make the most of your gift, you`ll want to opt for flowers that are hardy and will last longer, yet still elegant enough for a baby.

Carnations are an obvious choice for babies, with their soft, ruffled appearance and delicate perfume. However, carnations can be a bit traditional, so if you are looking for something more original, why not choose Gerber daisies? These simple, but pretty flowers are hardy and can last for a week, making them a great flower to send to a baby. They also come in a wide variety of colors, so it`s easy to find the color combination that you want. Gerber daisies are also lower in price than many more fragile flowers, so they are a good choice any way you look at it.

Little Extras

Just a flower basket isn`t really enough for most people, so most flower delivery shops will allow you to choose little extras to turn a simple flower basket into something truly special. There are dozens of extra items that can be added to a baby flower basket, including the following:

- It`s a Boy/Girl! Balloons - Teddy bears - Baby figurines or mother and child figurines - Assorted other stuffed animals - Baby rattles and toys - Picture frames with a baby theme - Music box

These aren`t anything major, but they can really make a big difference in how your flower basket is presented. A ravishing bunch of Gerber daisies with a cute teddy bear and a balloon announcing the baby`s arrival makes a great gift for the newborn.

What About Mom?

Parents of the new baby can really enjoy a flower basket as well. Consider going with a more adult theme for the new mom, though. Roses make a great bouquet that is at once elegant and pretty, particularly if you choose a softer color like peach or yellow.

A flower basket simply recognizes the hard work put in by the mother of the new baby, 9 months of carrying the child and then the delivery. You can add some other little extras to this basket, as well. Chocolates, cookies or even a little figurine are ideal for the new mom flower basket.

To welcome a baby into the world and your circle of friends, you really can`t go wrong with a baby themed flower basket. It`s something that the mother and father will enjoy and it`s something that can be enjoyed immediately, as opposed to a toy that would have to wait until the baby is older. Flowers are always a good choice.
