Sending Flowers to Another State: the Step-by-Step Guide

Flowers are one of the sweetest gifts you can give a loved one.

It's like a warm hug that can comfort anyone and a way for you to show your care, support, and appreciation.

But since we're all cooped up for the last couple of years, social media has taken over our daily interactions. It allowed us to stay in touch and get regular updates on other people's lives even though we often don't get to see each other.

However, this benefit also has its downsides. No likes, comments, or DMs can replace the warmth of getting something more tangible.

Imagine getting a comment for one of your posts versus receiving an actual gift on your doorstep with a heartwarming message.

Luckily, the internet has also made gift-giving convenient. It's so simple to do, and the best part is, you can send gifts even to distant places.

So in this blog, we'll tell you all about the details you need to know when sending flower gifts to someone living in a different state.

Where to order? 

If you're giving fresh blooms, it's best that you find a flower shop near the recipient you're sending flowers.

It will ensure timely delivery and that your fresh flowers will arrive in good condition. 

When to order?

It's best to order a bouquet at least two days before your preferred day of delivery.

However, it's best to order as soon as seven days so your florist will have more time to craft a beautiful arrangement for you. And since most flower arrangements require a variety of blooms, this will also allow the florist to gather the necessary flowers for the bouquet if they run out of stock.

You can order or pre-order during peak seasons, like Valentine's Day or Mother's Day (if the flower shop offers it.) It will give you some peace of mind that your loved one will get their flowers during those times of the year.

Can I customize a bouquet?

Yes, you may.

Whether you're sending to someone near your area or out of state, you can inform your chosen flower shop if you have any special requests.

Although most shops have pre-made arrangements, you can ask them to create a custom bouquet if you can't choose any you like or if your recipient is fond of a particular flower. But, of course, you'll also have to consider first if the flower is in season during that time of the year.

Want to include something extra in your gift? You can arrange that too, since most flower shops have chocolates, plush toys, greeting cards, and more in their packages. Some may be complementary, while others come with extra charge. 

Can I order flowers to be delivered to a hospital?  

Absolutely! But you need to be careful since different facilities have protocols regarding patients receiving flowers. Some have a "no flowers, no plants" policy to minimize infections and allergies among patients. It's best to contact the hospital first regarding this.

Step-by-step to send flowers in and out of state

As mentioned, sending flowers anywhere is easy peasy thanks to the internet.

The Only Roses' website is a great place to shop modern luxury fresh bouquets that you can send to anyone living in Los Angeles or any part of Southern California.

How do I make sure that the flowers are delivered?

Now that you've completed your order, the next thing that you might be worried about is if your recipient was able to get their flower arrangement.

Your loved one will most likely send you a message to thank you. But if you haven't heard from them after the scheduled delivery date, you can check with the recipient of the flowers to find out if they were received.

If on a rare occasion, your gift was delayed and it is a fault on our end, you can call our hotline: 1-833-474-3837 or send us an email at, and we'll be happy to issue a refund.
