Boulder Crest Retreat 4th Annual Hoedown fundraiser 3 June 2017

We supported the Hoedown for Boulder Crest Retreat on June 3, 2017.   Freedom Petals created beautiful flower arrangements for each dinning  table and end tables throughout the main building. Our volunteers also made arrangements for each cabin. 

Our arrangements for the tables were in cowboy boots vases with western/field flowers that sat in the middle of each table.  Everyone was so excited and pleased with the motif and said that they were so appropriate for the occasion.

Freedom Petals also made a beautiful and huge arrangement for the Silent Auction.  As people walked by the arrangement we heard many compliments and "I want that" from people signing up for the auction that we were very excited that it was bringing in another donation.

I just want to mention that the weather was beautiful and the grounds were well decorated for the event by many volunteers.
It was a great event.

Finally, the event brought in $135,000 for Boulder Crest Retreat and we all had a great time.

Mothers Day Event 12 May Aleethia Thank You

Happy Mother's Day Michele,
Thank you and all the wonderful volunteers of Freedom Petals who designed and provided beautiful corsages and floral arrangements to help celebrate Military Spouse Appreciation Day and Mother's Day Weekend at Aleethia's May 12 "Friday Night Dinners."  The ladies throughout the room were excited to receive the corsages and some of the men asked me for a corsage to take back to their nurses (since it was the last day of "Nurses Week") or for their Moms.   I'm attaching a photo of scenes of "smiling faces!"  Also, the four hydrangea plants found four different homes.  One is making its way to a service member's family in Fort Eustis in Virgnia Beach.
Again, thank you for helping us to honor Moms, Spouses, Nurses, a newly married couple and a "newly" engaged couple with an array of flowers.  It was quite an exciting evening for all!
Enjoy your day!
Hugs,
Margaret
