So many have been asking what is the LONELY BOUQUET and why are you doing it.
Over at Fleuropean you can find out all the details you need to know but to simplify it for you. The concept of the lonely bouquet is to bring back the appreciation of getting flowers and to leave. Anyone can participate……as pulled from their site the concept is outlined below:
The basic concept of the Lonely Bouquet goes a little something like this: 1) pick flowers fresh from the garden or forage straight from nature, 2) arrange the flowers in a small, recycled jar, 3) add a signature “take me!” tag, and 4) leave the homegrown arrangement behind for a lucky local to take home. Voila! You have just delivered a handful of flowers that will surely put a smile on a stranger’s face. – check this link out to see more
We played with this project at the store and it was so fun. We helped the efforts along by taking a picture and hashtagging both on instagram and twitter.
More ways to follow along with the flower fun:
We got such a great response and plan on doing it all the time at random. We love flowers, with our busy society we think it’s often forgotten how a gift of flowers can make someone feel.
Here are some of our lonely bouquets around town.
