The Lonely Bouquet

Time for another progressive blog post from the Chapel Designers!

We were very excited to participate in the first International Lonely Bouquet day this past June 30th.  We loved this idea the very first moment we heard of it.  It was hard to wait until the actual day to jump in.  We love sharing our flowers and this was such a nice way to brighten others days.  We enlisted our friend Sara of Sara Lil Photography and out we headed...We might add that this was a very HOT afternoon here in Corvallis, with the temperature approaching 95 as we headed out.  It was hard to decide where to leave our bouquets.  We were happy that our bouquets found some great homes, and Sara managed to get some great photos for us!  

The first bouquet found a perfect home here for a little while. The chalk art says, "Look for something positive in each day even if some days you have to look a little harder. Let the challenges make you stronger."




This lucky waiter at a favorite sidewalk restaurant found this beauty.  It was headed home to his girlfriend!


This sweet bouquet undoubtedly went home with a dog lover!


We had so much fun, and found some more flowers, that one final bouquet went out on Monday.  Here it is below waiting for someone to adopt it.  Our hearts were so happy to receive this email from the lucky recipient. 

"Thank you for the lovely bouquet that went home with my 89 year old mother.  I saw it and the tag at  Wound care clinic.  Mother was very happy to accept it and clutched it happily in her arms for the ride home to her adult foster care in Albany where it is shared with her other housemates. What a generous thing  you have done. Thank you for the gift of flowers to brighten her day." 

 It's why we love what we do!

Flower bouquets are the new trend on weddings and special events.
