Once upon a time, before the Internet became a common household commodity, if you wanted to buy flowers for your loved ones in another country, you would have to somehow find a florist over there, make a very long-distance phone call, order flowers without even seeing them, and hope that it all turned out okay. The  Internet has made the whole process a whole lot easier, and Interflora takes that convenience further by making it a cinch to order flowers for anyone anywhere. For example, say you’re somewhere on the East Coast of the United States , but you need a florist in Gloucester, England because your great aunt Nelly lives there and you almost forgot her 80th birthday. Before the internet, you would have to jump through some major hoops to get flowers delivered to her on time and stay in her good graces. Now, you can go online, see exactly what types of floral arrangements are available,  and order her a beautiful bouquet of her favorite pink roses and lilies in just mere seconds. The disaster of being the only niece that forgets her birthday is averted.

Of course, sending flowers to relatives in other countries is not the only benefit of using Interflora. The world is much smaller than it used to be, and we spend a lot more time traveling. Between destination weddings, honeymoons, and visiting family members abroad, we spend a lot more time flitting back and forth across the ocean. Nothing brightens up a hotel room or vacation home more than a bouquet of fresh flowers. If you’re vacationing in, say,  Norwich and want to find a florist, you can check out the flower delivery Norwich section of Interflora and order fresh flowers directly from a local shop. Not only does this ensure your flowers arrive as beautiful as if they were just picked, but it also supports the local economy of the town you’re visiting. I personally think the Autumn hand-tied bouquet would be perfect for this time of year.

There are so many reasons to buy flowers through a reputable online site that uses local florists, and Interflora really does take a lot of the guess work out of the whole process. The site allows you to search by country and then by region or city, so you can really narrow down your choices. For those in the UK, you dozens of places from which to choose, with florists everywhere from flowers in Brighton to flowers in Worcestershire.
