Adam + Jessica Share the Aloha! Wedding Flower Donations

A BIG MAHALO to Adam and Jessica, who tied the knot at JW Marriott Ihilani Ko Olina Resort on August 12, 2014, and donated over 3 dozen beautiful wedding centerpieces and bouquets to our Share the Aloha Program!

This was the first time I personally dropped off floral donations to our participating nursing homes and it was an absolutely AMAZING experience 🙂  With Adam and Jessica’s donations, we were able to bring so many smiles to residents at the Plaza at Punchbowl, Island Nursing Home, Kapi’olani Medical Center for Women and Children, Shriners Children’s Hospital, and Hale Nohea.

Meeting the residents at the nursing homes was so much fun and the way their eyes lit up as I gave them the flowers was so precious.  They all said they loved the colors, which were beautiful shades of purple, blue, and white, and were just so grateful for the thoughtful and beautiful gift.  Because there were a lot of centerpieces, we were also able to decorate around the offices of each nursing home and hit dozens of residents at 3 nursing homes, the childrens cancer floor at Kapiolani Childrens Hospital, and the kids at Shriners Hospital 🙂

Thank you Adam and Jessica for your beautiful donations!!  You guys are amazing and your flowers definitely did not go to waste!

Share the Aloha Program

Share the Aloha has partnered with the Plaza at Punchbowl!

We have some new and exciting news! Our flower donation program “Share the Aloha” has just partnered with the senior care facilities – Plaza Assisted Living, which includes: the Plaza at Punchbowl, Plaza at Mililani and soon, the Plaza at Moanalua!  This is pretty exciting because now we have an even wider range of people who we can reach and really help to make a difference with. Currently our Hawaii Wedding Flower Donation program makes regular deliveries to Kapiolani Medical Center (children’s cancer floor), four different Manoa Senior Care homes and now Plaza Assisted Living facilities;)

If you would like to donate your wedding flowers, please send us an e-mail at dropaline@bestdayeverhawaii.com Today!  It’s super easy – and FREE! Just give us a call and we’ll figure out the best time/place for pick-up and we handle all the other details… If we are allowed to take photos (only a few facilities allow pics), we will send you photos so you can see just how many hearts your flowers have touched.

Unfortunately the Plaza at Punchbowl did not allow photos with the residents, due to privacy policies, HOWEVER.. the staff was happy to take a few pics with the Best Day Ever – Hawaii Wedding Planning Team!

I just wanted to share a little bit about our first delivery at the Plaza at Punchbowl.  We arrived last week, early one morning, very excited to meet a bunch of new friends.  We came stocked with several oh so pretty flower donations from one of our favorite Hawaii couples – Sarah and David and were able to spend a little over an hour at the gorgeous Plaza at Punchbowl, meeting and greeting residents.  We talked story, gave hugs and spent a little time with about 25 different residents, hand-delivering each of the beautiful floral arrangements.  I really have to say – it’s always, such a really wonderful experience. There’s nothing better than seeing their faces light up! Most can’t even believe that someone would think of them, let alone bring them such beautiful flowers. My favorite part is giving each resident a hug after I’ve spent a little bit of time hearing about their day.  Some of the residents hold on to me so tight and some even start crying… Its so very touching and for all of you who have donated flowers, you really do make such a difference in so many lives.

Each of the floral arrangements came complete with a card from Sarah and David and Best Day Ever, Hawaii Wedding Planners. Sarah and David rented vases from one of our favorite Hawaii Floral Designers: Debbie Hemingway – so I took all the flowers back to my house in large buckets and then re-vased them before delivering them out to the Plaza at Punchbowl.
