Petal it Forward 2019

SAF’s annual nation-wide petal it forward event will take place on Wednesday, October 23, 2019. It’s a wonderful event that we always encourage all our customers to take part in.

What is Petal it forward?

 Petal it forward is a day where local florists can hand out beautiful bouquets to worthy recipients. It is an event to raise awareness of the joy of flowers as well as a way to gain potential new customers. We think this a lovely way to gain new customers, flowers are always a wonderful surprise especially when unsuspected! Petal it forward often makes local news headlines as well as people’s day!

How can you participate?

The best part of petal it forward is that you choose how much you’d like to participate. You can make the event as big or small as you’d like. Whether you are handing out a few stems of flowers, or a bunch of beautiful bouquets, the point of petal it forward is to spread awareness of the wonderful effects flowers can bring to people so even making one person’s day will make it all worth it! SAF has a sign-up sheet on their website that you can find more information and list your flower shop as a participating shop.

Why petal it forward?

We all know how much flowers mean to us, since we are in the business however, it is always nice to remind people of the importance of flowers. We are a wonderful industry and most local shops could always use their community support; this is a way to show how we can support our community! The event is also fun and exciting for your employees! If you choose to participate, you can give your employees the task of finding unsuspecting recipients for the flowers and everyone enjoys bringing a smile to someone’s face!

We do hope you will take part in this wonderful event and be sure to share the fun on your social media!
