I’m allergic to fresh flowers. If there is a fresh flower arrangement in the middle of the table, by the end of the meal, I’ve got a runny nose and my eyes hurt. It’s annoying. Truly.
When the Princess was born, people who didn’t know that about me sent me flowers…at the hospital…in that tiny room. Ya, that’s not so good. Whomever happened to be visiting at the time of the flowers arrival got to go home with a nice bouquet. The flowers couldn’t stay!
When my friend Katie passed away a few weeks ago, I got flowers from the #sisterchicks. However, they know me…well apparently. They sent me an Edible Arrangement. Have you seen these?
They are beautiful! And, you can eat them! All the fruit was fresh. The chocolate was high quality. There truly is NOTHING better than a chocolate covered strawberry. NOTHING. We at the House of Hills loved our arrangement.
So, if you want to send flowers and the person is allergic to them, send them some edible ones. They worked for me.
Let me just add a special THANK YOU to the #sisterchicks for reaching out to me during my grief. It meant more than you will ever know.
Disclosure: I was not paid for this post in any way. This is just my little opinion here.

Yay. Love those sisterchicks. 😀 You deserved some fruit and chocolate!
Yay! That really is my “flowers” of preference! Glad it could be enjoyed by all … especially you!!
I’m so glad you liked them! Who doesn’t need chocolate-covered strawberries in a time like this??
And we didn’t even know that you were allergic! How awesome is God?!
God be with you – without Katie. Words don’t do much I know. If I were there I’d just listen to you talk – or just sit.
And bring edible flowers 🙂
