We are officially one week away from Society of American Florists’ (SAF) Petal It Foward event. It’s a nationwide effort to spread happiness and we are so happy to be participating again! On Wednesday, Oct. 11th, we will be hitting the streets of downtown Boise from 3:00 p.m. until flowers run out, handing out 6,000 roses to busy commuters to help brighten up their week. They will be given two roses, one to keep and the other for them to Petal it Forward. We encourage them to share the extra rose with a loved one, coworker or even a stranger.
Last year was our first time participating in the event and it was such a great experience working as a team to spread happiness! Seeing people’s positive reaction was heartwarming and it was even more rewarding when we witnessed them “petal it forward.” All 50 states will be participating in SAF’s event and florists in Canada are joining us too!
Check out our video from last year’s event highlighting some of our special moments. Our team joined other local florists, such as Blooms Flower Studio, Wildflower Florals and Events, Hope Blooms, J. Michaels Flowers along with officers from the Ada County Sheriff. The Ada County Sheriffs Office will be joining us again this year!
