Pain, panic, and an uncontrollable nervousness followed by the cheers and tears of the mother and the whimpering cry of a newborn child and that pale faced and nervous father now breaking out a proud smile and sigh of relief. Every parent knows these feelings, having been through it one or more times as they welcome a new life.
Celebrating the Bundle of Joy
Once the anxiety ends, the celebration begins. Soon after, family and friends come in droves to see the new bundle of joy and share in the celebration.
What better way to say congratulations than with a special gift for the parents, especially if it includes something like flowers that are sure to brighten the sterile hospital room. Here are some ideas that will be sure to bring a smile to a weary mom and dad:
- Deluxe Tulips fresh from Holland in bright colors like yellow, purple, orange and pink are sure to delight and represent the celebration of new life and friendship. You can get them in bunches of anywhere from 15 to 30 tulips, depending on your budget.
- A blushing arrangement of various pink flowers is a great way to welcome a baby girl into the family. These can include all types of flowers, including roses, carnations, and tulips just to name a few.
- Let’s not forgot those bouncing baby boys with arrangements that offer beautiful blue and white flowers, including those that feature white spray roses, white wax flowers, and light blue delphinium in special baby-inspired vases and cubes.
- Check with the florist on adding special touches like ribbons, balloons, and special vases that they can cherish even after the flowers are gone.
- Mom and dad might even appreciate their own gift baskets of pampering products to ease those upcoming all-nighters and help heal the body after birth. Or, you can think about getting a great coffee basket (they are going to need that for sure!) or spa products basket. You can always customize these to suit the individual tastes of your family and friends that are now new parents.
Check with the Hospital
It is best to check ahead to see what the hospital’s policy is about flowers and plants as some prefer to not receive deliveries, especially if mom might be in intensive care or there are other special circumstances.
If this is the case, you can check with the parents to see if someone is at their home to receive deliveries. You could even consider waiting a few days as the new parents will most likely be inundated with gifts or just simply overwhelmed!
