What happens to all of the flowers after an event? That is a question we are asked regularly. Brides and bridesmaids usually take their bouquets with them and sometimes take a few table arrangements for family members. Most of the flowers are left though for us to pick up later. We give a lot of the flowers to vendors and venue staff or others that we think would appreciate them. But, we want to be more intentional about that. So, Random Acts of Flowers!
Our first Random Act of Flowers bouquets were not event left overs. Rather, my cutting garden was overflowing. Locally grown flowers are a bonus!
It was so fun to drop these off! I waited until the area was empty and left the bouquets on a table. I snapped a quick picture and posted a few clues on Facebook and Instagram about where to find the flowers.
“Take One and Have a Great Day!”
I was curious to find out where our bouquets went. There was one public post and a friend told us that she knew someone who took one. If you find one, please make the post public so we can see how the flowers are being enjoyed!
Do you recognize these tables or the pavement in this photo? The clue was to stop in one of my favorite stores downtown and try one of my favorite drinks–The Americola.
We don’t plan to flower the same place twice but we do plan to flower again! Leave a comment and let us know where we should leave our next bouquets!
