The Lonely Bouquet idea is fantastic! Sometimes we enjoy spreading smiles and showing the love throughout the year. On random days from time to time, we deliver flowers all over the city in small decorative tins. We leave them in assorted public spots with a note telling the person who finds our Lonely Bouquet to take it away and give it a good home. This always gets a good reaction. See more and our special guest appearance on TV3 at International Lonely Bouquet Day.
This idea came to me on a plane! A pal of mine rescues animals of all types particularly horses. It struck me, that in my business, so many flowers don’t make the grade. They are rejected.
When looking for the perfect arrangement or bouquet, this is understandable, but what a waste!
We decided to give away flowers not quite up to the mark in exchange for a voluntary donation at the discretion of the customer to go to the animal rescue charity and help horses who have also been rejected.
