Two weeks ago, we hosted our third Mayesh Lonely Bouquet Design Day, but this year, we extended it to a full week! Our branches had an awesome turnout – Portland alone had 42 designers help send out almost 100 bouquets! Our favorite part about Lonely Bouquet is seeing all of the pictures and heart-warming stores flood in as strangers began finding these lonely bouquets around town.
We wanted to share the joy that was felt with this year’s Lonely Bouquet, starting with this sweet story sent to us by Paula of Southern California, about her parents’ experience finding one of the bouquets:
Dear Mayesh Flowers,
My elderly parents live in Santa Paula, CA and go to the local Thrift store on Main street every week as one of their regular outings. My mother found a “Lonely Bouquet that was asking for a home” this week. She was so excited and happily took the bouquet home and put them in her special vase. She called all her kids (there are 6 of us) and shared her sweet find. I just wanted to send you a “HUGE THANK YOU!!” You have made my mother SO HAPPY! It is small sweet gestures like this, that can make someones day. I love a business that thinks like this and does thoughtful gifts of kindness. I would love to be a patron of your business, but after browsing your website, it looks like it is exclusive to business or private companies. Again, Just wanted to say a “BIG THANK YOU”
Thank you for sharing, Paula, we’re so glad we could put a smile on your mom’s face!
