Thanks so much for delivering the beautiful flowers from the wedding. As you witnessed, our residents were very enthusiastic about getting them. Please thank the bride and groom for thinking of them. It really meant a lot to each of the seniors!

Donate Your Wedding Flowers
We’re excited to let you know about a wonderful way to share a part of your big day with those who would REALLY appreciate it.After your wedding, instead of throwing out your floral arrangements or begging your guests to take them home, we will deliver them on your behalf to a nursing home. This is an easy way to do something special as you start your new life together. Picture the huge smiles on the faces of the senior citizens that will enjoy your beautiful flowers for several days after your wedding. Since 2008, our couples have donated over 4,000 arrangements!
My Grandparents are My Inspiration
Read Their Love Story
Hy and Rebecca were married 71 years. They lived to 94 and 91. He made her breakfast in bed everyday and always brought her a flower from their garden. After they passed away I wanted to create something as a memorial to their never ending love for each other.
Each winter they would drive about 6 miles an hour from Freeport, IL down to Clearwater Beach, FL in their 1972 Oldsmobile with their left turn signal turned on from about Nashville on south. They always stayed at the same hotels and restaurants and were known by everyone along the way.
He went to University of Nebraska at age 15, became a doctor at 22 and was an army doctor for 30 years. She was an amazing poet and actually went to high school with Dear Abby and Ann Landers in Sioux City, Iowa. While he was on his death bed, she read her poetry to him at his request, especially the poetry she had written about their lives together. They were inseparable.
This is a 100% FREE program.

They feel like they were a part of your big day too! Thanks for your generosity!
I always look forward to Sunday mornings when you bring over such beautiful flowers. No one has brought me flowers since my husband died. They also make happy. Please tell the bride and groom we really appreciate the pretty flowers.
