Florists nationwide took part in SAF’s Petal It Forward Event. To be exact, 650 floral teams in all 50 states, plus Canada and Puerto Rico, surprised those in their local communities with two free bouquets each so they can experience the flower power!
We are grateful to be one of those who participated in such an amazing event.

A Small Act of Kindness

This year, the DV team spent a perfect fall day in Media, PA on Wednesday, October 23 showing up at just the right time to warm many hearts with the simple gift of giving free flowers! We spent the first half of our day at Kenny’s Flower Shoppe and the second half at Media Florist. We are happy to have had to opportunity to hand out flowers at each location.

We also had a team who partnered with The Garden of Eden Flower Shop to hand out bouquets in Mullica Hill, NJ and many of our customers and Sales Associates participated as well across the Northeast!

It was heartwarming to see many faces light up after being approached with two free bouquets. The only catch though, they had to keep one and pass one on to a stranger, coworker, friend, or family member! In just a short amount of time, we heard how the simple act changed and brightened the day of those who received. It was rewarding to witness those who continued on their way to work, or wherever they were headed, with their bouquets in hand and give out their other bouquet within steps of walking away from us after receiving! Proof of a simple act of kindness that leaves an impact!

Petal It Forward illustrates the positive benefits
of giving and receiving flowers!

We are looking forward to participating in the event next year already!
