February 3rd Aleethia Dinner and Boulder Crest Couples Dinner Flowers

The Friday, February 3rd 2017 flower event was a  huge success.  We had new volunteers and of course our Friday team working very hard to make the early Valentine themed flowers so beautiful.
Thank you to all who share their talents at my house every month creating bouquets for our heroes.

Here is the note from Margaret of Aleethia and a collage of our dinner table arrangements.

Hi Michele,

Thanks to you and the Freedom Petals' volunteers for spreading joy with flowers!  The floral arrangements always add beauty to the tables and fill the room with positive energy and smiling faces. I'm attaching a collage of "smiling faces!"  Cheryl was so happy to take back the extra bouquets to the Fisher Houses and she was planning to put bouquets in the patients/families' rooms to brighten their day and make them feel special.  I heard the cupcakes were gone within the hour of their delivery.

As you know flowers serve a dual function ... the joy of both giving and receiving!

We look forward to Freedom Petals bringing more smiles to Aleethia's Friday Night Dinner in March.

The first week in February I also received a call from Carrie our contact at Boulder Crest Retreat in Bluemont Va. asking for some table flower arrangements for a couples dinner they were planning for 
Saturday 11 February.  The large farm tables are in each of the log cabins on the property.  Theresa and I got together one afternoon and created them for this event.  Thank you so much for your time and talents.
