Bringing joy to others after the event: donating your flowers

While flowers are huge part of creating the ambiance for your event, not only are they costly, but their perishable nature makes them hard to deal with after the event.  The groom and bride will likely leave for the honeymoon soon after the wedding, and many guests come from out of town and cannot or do not want to take the flowers with them.  More often the not, the bulk of these beautiful and expensive flowers get thrown out.

Consider extending the joy that the flowers brought to your event by donating them to hospitals, nursing homes, churches, or local charities.  Call ahead to time to find out an organization's donation policy.  Or, you may be able to find a volunteer organization like San Diego-based Blooms From the Heart, who will do the delivery for you!

You'll be able to enjoy your honeymoon that much more knowing that your flowers are still putting smiles on people's faces.
