Need Help Writing Card Messages Sent With Your Flowers?



When a customer orders flowers we always ask if they would like a card message printed on a note card to send with their arrangement. Some customers are prepared and have a nice thoughtful message prepared, others struggle to find the right words for the occasion. We know it’s not always easy to write a heartfelt message especially during a time of sorrow but hopefully this guide will help those who need of a little inspiration!


Here are some examples of short but sweet card messages for different occasions.

Get Well Soon
They say laughter is the best medicine so if you can incorporate a little humor it can add a great personal touch and lift the recipient’s spirits. However, if the person is the serious sort or you’re not very close, it’s safer to stick with more formal sentiments.

• As you rest and heal, know that you are thought of warmly and wished a quick recovery.
• Wishing that each day brings your renewed strength, brighter times, and a healthier, happier you.
• I am sorry you are not feeling well. I am praying for you to have a complete and quick recovery
• Get well soon. Feel better. We miss you!
