IMG_20150717_181240859We 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.image001

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.pic 3

Our Community Spirit

This is a hallmark of Flowerama and something that we focus on every chance we get whether it is a community event, getting to know our neighbors throughout Columbus, or participating in a special charity event.
