On Sunday November 25th, 2012, Nicolette & William had their “Best Day Ever“~ ! 🙂 And two days later, a few special seniors at Island Nursing Home and Pearl City Nursing Home had their “Best Day Ever” when they received a wonderful surprise, a gorgeous arrangement of hydrangea’s, roses, daisies and cymbidiums! . . . Nicolette & William’s beautiful wedding flowers!
How it all came to be … Lorrie, one of our favorite bride to be’s contacted me a week earlier to let me know that one of her friends, Nicolette, was getting married and wanted to donate a few of her wedding florals. Of course we were very excited and gave our friends at Island Nursing Home and Pearl City Nursing home a call right away to let them know we’d have some lovely deliveries coming soon. I then worked out the details with Nicolette and two days after her wedding, I had a beautiful large floral arrangement and two small bouquets.
Being the thrifty Chinese girl that I am, I decided to pull all the flowers out of the one large arrangement to create eight new arrangements. All the stems were trimmed and the brown petals were pulled off. I then neatly packed all the vases into boxes for traveling and we were off!
Erika did the deliveries out in Pearl City, spending time with three very happy ladies out at Pearl City Nursing Home. Unfortunately we aren’t allowed to take photos there, but Denby part of the nursing home’s staff graciously posed for a pic.
That same day I headed out to Island Nursing home and spent time with three lovely ladies and one handsome man. All were so thrilled to be getting the arrangements and could not believe that Nicolette and William would share their wedding flowers with them. “Are you sure I don’t know her?” one of the ladies said, “She looks very familiar!”. I always love to show them the bride and grooms pic.. and they love it too.
Smiles all around ! – Thank You Hawaii Bride & Groom, Nicolette & William! You guys really made a difference:) And also, from the Best Day Ever Team, we’d like to send you both a . . .
BIG Congratulations on your Wedding! xoxoxo 🙂
Honestly, these donation days are my favorite days, I see how much joy a little visit and few floral arrangements bring and I’m brought to tears almost every time. It’s pretty amazing to see the flowers come full circle.
