The folks at SAF (Society of American Florist) are at it again! Their annual nation-wide celebration of Petal It Forward will occur on October 24, 2018. We invite you to participate and spread the word as well!
This feel-good initiative strives to spread kindness and compassion to those in your community. Whether it be a friend or a complete stranger, do something special to make their day. Those who participate in Petal It Forward are asked to purchase two flower bouquets. Find an unsuspecting individual and give them the bouquets. Tell them to keep one bouquet and give the other to another person. Tell them about the initiative and perhaps they will continue the giving. The possibilities are endless! If you live in a large city like New York, you may see people passing out flowers on the street. If you don’t see anyone in your town participating, take it upon yourself and spread the love!
As a retail florist or someone that works in the industry, you can participate by stocking up on wholesale flowers to create these bouquets. In your shop create signage to advertise the event with the arrangements pleasingly displayed. You may even get some foot traffic with people specifically looking for ways to celebrate this day, so be prepared!
Do you have any questions? How can you join this special day? Here at Main Wholesale Florist, we are happy to help answer these questions! Join us at our New Jersey or New York location and speak directly to our experts. We can even ship flowers directly to your retail shop with our Flowers Express program. How will you be Petaling it Forward? Drop us a comment or talk to us on Facebook! We can’t wait to hear from all of you!
