We recently held a local contest on Facebook to give away a summer flower arrangement. The Columbus winner decided to pay it forward and asked that the flower arrangement be given to someone else that could use a smile. Well, we decided to go a few steps beyond that. Instead of just one arrangement, we decided to take 100 roses to Willow Brook Christian Village, a senior community in Delaware, Ohio this past Friday. A friend of ours goes to Willow Brook and often does karaoke with the seniors there. We often take corsages for the special ladies from our Columbus flower shop. The ladies at Willow Brook are always so pleased to receive corsages and mention how beautiful the flowers are. We picked July 17th because we heard that one of the residents, Mary, was celebrating her 100th birthday while her friend, Belvadel, would soon celebrate turning 104! This was the perfect opportunity to bring in 100 roses to mark such a special birthday. It’s quite an accomplishment to reach the century mark and even surpass it like these two ladies. As you can see from the pictures, everyone had an amazing night of karaoke and fun while also enjoying their beautiful roses. It was a special moment for us too as it reminded us of the power nature has to brighten someone’s day and that it is the small things we do in life that often have the greatest impact. Our Community Spirit It doesn’t get much better than this when we can participate in a special event where we see the spirit of community, sharing, and the ability to be present for people in action. This is a hallmark of Flowerama and something that we focus on every chance we get whether [...]
July brings block parties and cookouts, but it also brings a number of special days that give you that excuse to indulge and enjoy. After all, you are celebrating these special food days. This month, there are so many to choose from, including National Cheesecake Day, National Milk Chocolate Day, National Junk Food Day and National Hot Dog Month. You can give these ideas as gifts or you can get them for yourself so you can share as part of a special summer occasion or just to stop and celebrate the little things in life that taste so good: Coblentz Chocolates We offer Coblentz Chocolates, which are homemade right here in Ohio’s Amish Country. While these are often hard to find in Columbus, we partner with Coblentz to make them available to you, including turtles, chocolate covered cherries and more. Our Coblentz Gourmet Basket includes chocolate covered cherries, chocolate covered pretzels, peanut caramel corn and chocolate caramel corn, sweet and spicy pecans, peanuts, cashews, and cinnamon roasted almonds. Cheryl’s Cookies Another delicious way to celebrate these special food days in July is with Cheryl’s Cookies, which are freshly basked and then individually wrapped. We have everything from a half dozen up to an assortment of 100 cookies. The flavors include chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, chocolate chocolate chip, sugar, and buttercream frosted cut-out cookies as well as other seasonal favorites. Order Today for Local and National Celebrations Although a few of these items are only available for local delivery, many can be shipped across the country. Call, order online, or visit our Columbus flower shop to check out how we have you covered on these special food holidays in July.
