Petal It Forward

Earlier this month our shop participated in a national floral movement that put fresh flowers into the hands of the public! To learn more, this below for the press release publish in our local media about the event! 
On October 7th, we handed out hundreds of bouquets to residents to help brighten their week, as part of the 'Petal It Forward' program, in partnership with the Society of American Florists (SAF). 'Petal It Forward' is in response to the release of new data by SAF showing the positive emotional benefits of flowers. 
University research shows that flowers have an immediate impact on happiness and a long-term positive effect on moods. Now, a new survey has found that when it comes to flowers it's just as good to give as it is to receive. With this data in mind the Monday Morning Flowers Petal It Forward team is not only spreading happiness to lucky Princeton residents who receive the flowers, but arming these residents with an extra floral bouquet to share with a loved, co-worker, or stranger and "Petal It Forward."

In March 2015, SAF conducted a study of 2,500 people throughout the U.S. to uncover the impact of flowers on Americans. The result revealed the many benefits of flowers including the positive impact flowers have on one's emotions and happiness, and back up previous research studies on flowers conducted by Rutgers, Harvard and Texas A&M. (See Flower Health Benefits & Research for more information on the university studies.

How to Make a Flower Puppy

It's amazing what you can do with 12 carnations and a little bit of creativity. Our Floral Designer Rocio loves making puppy arrangements so here she shares her tips with you! Here's what you will need ~ 12 full size carnations, floral glue, floral tape, a floral container, 1/3 of a block of floral foam and some assorted greenery.  First take your wet floral foam and tape it securely into your floral container.  Slowly start adding the 12 carnations starting with the top to form the head, the ears, the face and the 2 front legs.
