It’s shaping up to be a busy week here at Chester’s! Our Petal it Forward event will be this Wednesday, October 7th. If you haven’t heard about it, here’s what will be happening: Our team will be traveling throughout the greater Utica area to surprise people at random with bouquets of flowers. Each person will receive two bouquets – one to keep and one to give away or “petal it forward.”
Our suppliers have donated thousands of flowers to our cause, and we will be assembling them into bouquets early in the week.
This nationwide event, created by the Society of American Florists, intends to spread happiness with flowers. Recent studies by Rutgers University, Harvard University and SAF have proved that flowers improve mood and emotional well-being.
Want to keep up to date on the big day and our preparation? Join our event page or follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We will be using #petalitforward and we invite you to too if you are a lucky flower recipient!
