Giving Flowers a Second Life
Flowers are a wonderful thing. They add beauty to any situation and are an integral part of weddings and many other occasions. But what happens after the “I do’s” and events?
Flower donation is a growing phenomenon. There are several organizations now who “recycle” gently used flowers from weddings and large events. They use every part of the designs including the ribbons and vases. New arrangements are crafted from deconstructing the bouquets and centerpieces. These new arrangements are then delivered to hospitals, assisted living facilities, hospice houses, and nursing homes. Many times they are also tax deductible depending on what organization you work with.
Random Acts of Flowers is a privately-funded organization that has a vision to improve the emotional health of the community with flowers.
