Make Somebody Smile Week!

Thousands of Teleflora member florists across the country join together each year to participate in "Make someone smile week"! Teleflora florists volunteer their time to create and deliver arrangements  in Teleflora's "Be Happy Mugs". Florists visit patients in hospitals, residents in nursing homes, assisted living homes, and shut in recipients of the meals-on-wheels program. Last year, Teleflora's member florists delivered more than 33,000 be happy mugs to those in need of a smile! This year, Floral Elegance delivered sixty smiles that were distributed to members of the local meals-on-wheels program. We also delivered 119 smiles to the Grafton Senior Center. We sent one smile to Roney's Funeral Home for the services of the late Roland Richards, who often played music for everyone in the senior center recreation room. The seniors were thrilled with the bright kalanchoe and violet plants which filled their smiley face mugs.  Some even re-gifted their smiles to others in need of one! The Floral Elegance team was elated when seeing the local seniors get so excited. It was wonderful to see the joy and smiles these Teleflora gifts inspired. We were so grateful for the generous donation from DELAWARE VALLEY WHOLESALE FLORIST, Cromwell Ct. who provided all of the beautiful blossoming plants which filled the mugs. This benevolent project would not have been possible without the support of Teleflora who provided all of the "Be Happy" mugs. We will continue to participate in smile week every year and hope to get more florists involved in this benevolent project.
