Come and check out our Pour and Plant Workshop on Wednesday, July 25th from 6:30-8:30pm. It will be held at the Reynoldsburg Flowerama, which is located at 6311 E. Main St. Reynoldsburg, OH 43068. Spots are limited! You can sign up online up through our website. The event includes candle making and succulent planting. The workshop was created in partnership with Small Batch Candle Company, a local soy candle company that also makes the candles we sell at our Columbus flower shops and through our website. The price of the workshop includes two 8 ounce candles. You can choose your fragrance and learn how to pour your own soy candles. While your candles are setting up, you will get to select from a variety of assorted succulent plants to plant and arrange in a succulent box. The boxes are hand-make and stained by our team here in our Columbus flower shops. The plants are easy to care for while the box makes a great keepsake item to decorate or use for other plants when you transplant the succulents to a larger container. Also included in the price are snacks and drinks to enjoy during the workshop. Please note that once you sign up and pay for it through our website that it is a NON-refundable purchase. Please bring your email receipt with you to the event. During the checkout process, please select Pour & Workshop as the pickup location. The product code is PPWS.

Pelotonia is coming August 3rd through August 5th, and we are raising money again this year to help this worthy community cause. Doing things for the local Columbus community is a hallmark of our family-owned flower shops. The organization has raised over $164 million dollars over the course of these events all of which has gone to cancer research. They are a grassroots organization through an annual three-day experience of cycling, entertainment, and volunteerism. This year will be the tenth year of making such an incredible impact while also bringing local communities together for an important purpose. Each year, there are thousands of riders, virtual riders, volunteers, researchers, donors, and partners who have accelerated the necessary funding for innovative cancer research that is designed to save lives. This year, the cycling route options have been expanded from six to ten. Pelotonia provides all participants with assistance to meet funding for their route bye extending fundraising until 11:59pm on Friday, October 5, 2018. In 2017, the fundraising hit a new record of $26.2 million. There were donors from all 50 states and 60 countries who contributed funds. Each year, the money goes to The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute. The money goes toward Idea Grants, Fellowships, Tools, Research, and Statewide Initiatives. Since it started, Pelotonia has funded 108 idea grants and 440 fellowships as well as supported 87 senior scientists and three statewide initiatives. Throughout the month of July, we will be raising donations and accepting them at all of our Columbus flower shop locations. Help us help others through this worthy cause.
