Celebration Flowers & Gifts will be delivering hundreds of Be Happy® Bouquets in honor of Teleflora’s Make Someone Smile Week from July 17th through the 23rd.
Teleflora donates the Be Happy® Mugs, and florists work with local wholesalers and growers to secure flower donations. With these donations, Teleflora florists create the cheerful Be Happy® Bouquets and delivers them to local hospitals, residents of nursing homes, recipients of Meals on Wheels, and other organizations.
In its 16th year, Teleflora’s annual Make Someone Smile® Week program has grown into the floral industry’s most popular, successful and emotional initiative in North America.
“We receive the most wonderful feedback from relatives of the bouquet recipients, says Debbie Custer, owner of Celebration Flowers & Gifts. Several times a year we get calls from family members, even out of state, remarking on how much the flowers meant to their loved one. I have been involved in the Teleflora event for seven years now and will continue for years to come. The feedback is what makes it all worthwhile and very rewarding.” Debbie goes on to thank their wonderful wholesalers, Mayesh of Romulus and Rokay of Plymouth. “Without their donations we would not have such a successful event!”
