Good neighbors make for safe and comfortable neighborhoods and tighter communities. It is a way to reinforce the idea that we are all here to look after each other and share an area where we can all enjoy coming home. National Good Neighbor Day on September 28th is designed to promote that idea and is a time where it’s encouraged to get to know your neighbors or do something nice for them. You can host a block party or a backyard barbecue to bring everyone together. Another idea is to give a special gift to those neighbors closest to you. We’ve got a great collection of gift ideas that can be an affordable and beautiful way to show your neighborliness. Here are some of our gift ideas for National Good Neighbor Day: • We partner with Cheryl’s Cookies to offer delicious treats. Right now, we have a great selection of fall favorites. For example, Pumpkins and Leaves Cutout Cookies offers one dozen individually wrapped buttercream frosted leaf and pumpkin cookies that make a great gift. They come delivered in a fall colored gift bag, which makes it a snap for gift giving. • Antique Autumn is a unique floral display in a pine wheelbarrow full of fall flowers and accents. • All Smiles is a welcoming gift with a keepsake ceramic smiley face container filled to the brim with yellow and white daisies. • We have plant gifts too like Garden Ivy, which is a long-lasting ivy plant that comes topped with a butterfly accent.

Each month brings special celebrations, and June is no different. Two special days in the month include National Gardening Exercise Day on June 6th and Best Friends Day on June 8th. The first is designed to bring awareness to the health benefits of gardening as well as to promote more replanting. The second puts special recognition on those people in our lives that we consider our closest friends. Both serve as positive ways to help yourself and others, adding more joy to our lives.

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 [...]
