Mayesh Lonely Bouquet 2017 Recap

Mayesh Lonely Bouquet 2017

 

Last month, we held our fourth annual Mayesh Lonely Bouquet Design Day, inspired by the International Lonely Bouquet initiative. We invited customers at every branch to create a pretty little bouquet, add a “take me” tag (we love to see where they ended up!) and leave the flowers anywhere around town for an unsuspecting stranger to come across. From a Target shopping cart to a bench outside the local hospital, we had hundreds of bouquets scattered around the country. It’s such a simple way to spread joy and happiness, and is one of our absolutely favorite days of the year!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the event and helped make the day of someone who needed it! Being surrounded by flowers every day, it’s so easy to forget just how special flowers can make someone feel, and the smiles they can put on a stranger’s face.

Mayesh Lonely Bouquet Design Day 2017

Mayesh Lonely Bouquet Design Day 2017

 

Every year we’re asked if we’re going to continue doing our own Mayesh Lonely Bouquet, and every year, the answer is a resounding YES! We love this event just as much as you do, so we’re excited to announce that this year’s Lonely Bouquet Design Day will be held on Wednesday, June 28th at all Mayesh locations.

For those of you who are not familiar with The Lonely Bouquet, here is a quick summary: it is a global initiative with a goal of making strangers happy with flowers. Participants create a small bouquet, add a “take me” tag, and leave the bouquet somewhere public to be found and taken home. It’s a simple but powerful idea.

Our marketing director, Yvonne, was able to connect with Emily Avenson, of Fleuropen, who launched (inter)National Lonely Bouquet Day back in 2013 to encourage participation from others. I asked Emily how she came up with the name “Lonely Bouquet” and she said, “… I tried to think of something that would appeal to the average passer-by. People often hesitate to take the flowers, and the word “lonely” seemed like something that would trigger an empathetic response and encourage someone to take the flowers home, whether they “need” them or not.”

Emily wanted emphasize “the importance of spreading happiness, love, and good. Whether you choose to participate in the Lonely Bouquet project or find your own special way of cultivating kindness, the world we live in can use all of the flower-power that we have. It might seem silly to think that a small bunch of flowers can make a difference… but it can, and it does.”

In the past we have hosted a Mayesh Lonely Bouquet Design Day, BUT we always struggled to find the best day to host the event that works with everyone’s schedule.

Adopted Mayesh Lonely Bouquets 2015

Adopted Mayesh Lonely Bouquets

 

On June 26th, we hosted our second Mayesh Lonely Bouquet Design Day! Based on the number of photos filtering in all day from our different branches, I’d say it was a success! We had so many florists (and even some of their children and family members!) show up to help design over 400 bouquets and spread the love around town. We had a number of stories and comments come back, and wanted to share the joy that was felt with this year’s Lonely Bouquets.

2014 Mayesh Lonely Bouquet – The Bouquets

International Lonely Bouquet Day was officially held on June 29th, but we thought it would be fun to have hundreds of florists spread happiness and the love of flowers for our 2014 National Open House!

The event took place on June 25, 2014.  We provided a great selection of complimentary flowers for our customers to create a bouquet, which they left for unsuspecting recipients across the country – over 250 bouquets in all.  Spreading joy one bouquet at a time and bringing smiles to people’s faces!

Watch the video to see a sample of the bouquets made at each of our wholesale flower branches – Bakersfield, Carlsbad, Chandler, LA Flower Market, Las Vegas, LAX, Orange County, Oxnard, Phoenix, Portland, Riverside, Charlotte, Cleveland, Miami, and Detroit.

We received a great response on social media from many who received the bouquets.  Be sure to read & see the reactions here by clicking the following link:http://www.mayesh.com/Blog/tabid/67/EntryId/431/Adopted-Mayesh-Lonely-Bouquets-2014.aspx

If we ever doubt in the importance of flowers, all we need to do is recall this amazing day!  Thank you to all that participated and to our vendors who helped donate flowers to our branches!  You all rock!

Adopted Mayesh Lonely Bouquets 2014

Last Wednesday, we hosted our first ever Mayesh Lonely Bouquet Design Day!  We are still working on putting together all of the pictures from our branches, but I am estimating that with the help of our amazing customers, we were able to send out around 250 Lonely Bouquets!!  So many florists got in the spirit to help spread joy and give others the opportunity to experience the power of flowers.  These bouquets helped brighten the day of the recipients and in some cases the flowers were adopted by people that really needed them!  I loved reading through all of the stories, so I wanted to make sure that I shared as many of them as I could!

Lonely Bouquet in Oxnard, CA

As you all know we had to postpone our National Open House, but some friends of our Oxnard branch still wanted to do something Lonely Bouquet related.  Here is the email and pictures that I received from Cindy Castaneda:

Although Lonely Bouquet {Design Day} was postponed some of our customers still had friends flying in from out of state (New York) and wanted to still participate.  They took the bouquets to our local Port Hueneme Naval base to hand out to our soldiers and their families.   Feel the love!
