Traveling Kindness Bouquet

Every week we select a local business or organization to receive our complementary "Traveling Kindness Bouquet".  This is a tradition we decided to start in April of this year.  It is normally a vase arrangement of fresh cut daisies, alstroemeria, or a blend of hearty flowers.  

Here is how it works-
We deliver the arrangement to the receptionist at a local business.  They keep the arrangement on their desk for about an hour and then they select who receives it next.  It is then passed around the office until the flowers are not up to passing.  

This is why we do it-
We believe that fresh flowers bring happiness, productivity, and a feeling of warmth and love.  Giving flowers to someone brings about those same feelings.  This is our way of showing others what it feels like not only to receive fresh flowers but also what it feels like to give flowers to others.   

How it all began-
When we took over the shop in January we were surprised at the number of people who had not heard of the shop.  We are always looking for new ways to get our name out to the public and show them what flowers can do for them.  One day I was browsing around on Facebook and saw this great idea.  I knew right then that I wanted to do this for our local businesses.  

What we hope to accomplish-
We want to let everyone know how fresh flowers make them feel.   To show everyone how just a simple bouquet can brighten your day.  So hopefully the next time someone needs a pick me up flowers is the first thing they think of.  Of course we would love for that order to come into our shop but that is just a small part of what we are trying to accomplish.  The most important part of all of this is to inform and to spread joy to everyone we can. 

Thank you for your time and we hope to someday bring the Traveling Kindness Bouquet to your business!  If you simply can't wait to see the joy on the faces of everyone in the office simply stop in and order one to take to the office with you!

  1. Great idea! My daughter has been travelling abroad for over a year now and the banks I use have gone above and beyond in helping a single mom of three and taught me a thing or two about wire transfers and great people still in the world and the work place. I believe people should be recognized for when they do well maybe more so than when they make mistakes...Thanks Wakovia and Valley National Banks of New Milford NJ.
