“This place is phenomenal. It is a great concept of bringing smiles and happiness one flower at a time. Had a great day with my coworkers from Determine, Inc. for our Day of Service. We loved putting the bouquet of flowers together and we loved delivering them to the residents at the nursing homes even more. Every resident was so appreciative to receive the gifts. Every encounter was a blessing.”

Gather your friends and colleagues for a happy hour experience like none other. Flowers After Hours is a perfect way to participate in our mission of hope and kindness, while enjoying drinks, hors d’oeuvres and the healing power of flowers. Attendees will participate in a hands-on demonstration with a local floral design expert. Each person will take home an arrangement that they create to enjoy at home. Any additional arrangements made will be donated to our deliveries at nursing homes and hospitals throughout the week. No previous floral experience necessary!

“Such a good time! Such a wonderful cause! I really enjoyed the evening and meeting several new ladies!” “Great event! Met some lovely new women and learned a new skill!”

Flowers After Hours includes:

  • Organizational Overview
  • Meet and Greet with fellow attendees
  • Assorted appetizers and non-alcoholic beverages
    (BYOB if you would like to have wine at the event)

“To the organizers & sponsors, and especially Trader Joe’s and Lisa, what a kind and thoughtful gift you give to patients. We certainly appreciated the beautiful yellow lilies that continued to open for days that came to Jack during his hospital stay. A sincere thank you.”

Involve your audience and the community by hosting a “percent-of-sales” event benefitting Random Acts of Flowers. This is an excellent way to demonstrate your business’ community commitment as well as an important opportunity to introduce RAF to new patrons. RAF will work with your marketing team to create cross-promotional elements to generate sales, including targeting RAF volunteers, to further build on your support of RAF’s mission.
