Question about flowers being delivered

My mom lives a couple of hours away and being 37 weeks pregnant, I will not be able to go see her for mother's day. So, the other day, I contacted this flower shop near her and ordered flowers to be delivered tomorrow morning. The flower shop is only open from 8am-noon and closed Sunday. Well, my mom just informed me that she called called into work tomorrow to work 7am-3pm. Do you think if they drop the flowers off at her front door, they will be ok outside until she gets home from work at 4?

  • Is it a plant or cut flowers? Does she have a hot sunny step or in the shade? Other option is have them delivered to her work. Depending on the Florist, and your specific instructions, they may help accommodate you.

  • Yes, I do the same thing for my mom. The florist leaves them on the back porch. She's come to expect it this time of the year, I think. LOL!

  • They should be fine this is what they do for a living. Usually they try to put them where they will be out of the direct sun light. Sometimes the will leave them with a neighbor. If you are trying to surprise her, you may have to let her in on it.

  • They should be OK, but can you call to see if they could take them to a neighbor just in case?
