Do's & Don’ts for Flower Arrangements & Allergies, Branford Center, Connecticut

Whether you’re sending a gift to a friend or looking for a dining table centerpiece, flower arrangements are a beautiful addition to a living space. However, allergies can prevent many people from being able to enjoy a gorgeous bouquet, and you need to keep this in mind when picking out floral gifts. Below are a few of the do’s and don’ts when it comes to choosing a flower arrangement that’s allergy-friendly.

Do:

Pick allergy-friendly varieties.

Not all flowers cause allergic reactions. Some of the most popular hypoallergenic flowers include carnations, daffodils, and hydrangeas. Even roses have a low pollen count and come in a variety of colors for all occasions, not just romantic events. 

Ensure proper ventilation.

flower-arrangementIf you have a flower arrangement in your living room, open up the windows to encourage proper ventilation. Cleaning the filters in your HVAC system will also ensure that allergens get trapped before they can circulate through your home. 

Don’t:

Forget to consider other alternatives.

Flowers aren’t the only gift option for special occasions. If you know someone with floral allergies, consider sending them a decorative fruit or gift basket instead. These are also festive, but less likely to cause an adverse reaction. 

Send flowers to those with serious allergies. 

If you or someone you know suffers from serious respiratory allergies when exposed to flowers, avoid giving this arrangement as a gift. Many species can cause severe reactions, such as asthma attacks.
