Talk about fill your heart

I think some of you know I have a side biz.  My degree is in floral design and I have just started using it by doing florals for events.  Ooohlala Floral.  

After a recent wedding Ann Marie and I made a special delivery.
We re-purposed wedding flowers from the night before and gave them away on Sunday afternoon.

We caught this couple bringing Mom back from lunch.  Love how the guy has Mom's purse over his shoulder.  Also love the care they are showing for a parent.

This is the common "go cart" at all nursing homes.  Every time we deliver the halls are quite full of these.  Love how the flowers sit on top of her event options for the day.

Soory, not so great shot of flowers at the wedding.  The bride had a great modern eye and used tangerine roses,  lime green spider mums, white David Austin roses and succulents on a bed of moss.  She provided the potted succulents as party favors for her guests. 

We also loaded up the dining room tables with arrangements too.  One sweet lady even asked if she could have the more colorful arrangment.  (with a tangerine rose)  So cute, made us smile.


  1. How sweet of you. They must have thought you were an angels.

  2. What a wonderful thing to do. it's such a great idea to recycle those flowers to bring sunshine to others.

  3. I think that is so sweet. We've noticed over the years that no matter the reason you are visiting a nursing home or retirement center, they are so happy to see and visit with you. I know the flowers made somebody's day.

  4. How sweet Lori! I am sure this makes their week. What a wonderful gift!:)
    Have a great weekend!

  5. Lori, that is such a kind and thoughtful thing to do and I know it brightens up their day! You are too sweet!

  6. Such a thoughtful gesture! I hope somebody brings ME flowers when I'm old & grey. Bless you, Lori, for all the good things you do in this world.

    Regarding the pie...I was just about to log on & tell you I'd be happy to send you a box or two & then saw you're making "coconut cheesecake pie!" Necessity...mother of invention & all. I bet it will be even better than the original! Please let me know how it turns out?

  7. Such lovely and sweet thing to do, Laurie. Lo ve the tangerine roses, always have, beautiful, happy color. I used to go a lot to visit my grandma at the nursing home and everyone else got a little visit too, I was so happy myself. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Such a fabulous idea, I know everyone loves the flowers and it always makes their day. Your mom looked like she was loving hers too. Great post. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  9. Very pretty Lori, I'm sure everyone enjoys them:@)

  11. Ok! NOW that's an idea that I wish I would have thought of! :) That is just about the most thoughtful thing I have heard of in a long time. Thank you so much for sharing it at Fresh-Cut Friday! :) Your arrangements are so cute! LOVE it! :)


  12. How wonderful. What a lovely thing to do.


  13. I love to show off my collection of Valentine's to the adult day centers and the nursing homes. They truly love to see things related to their times. Makes me feel really good. You are a blessing to your mom and others...
