Thousands of Petals Set to Brighten Wednesday in Spokane

Bloem.Chocolates.Flowers.Paperie will be hitting the streets of Spokane on Wednesday, October 11, handing out hundreds of flowers to the downtown community and surrounding areas to help brighten up their week, as part of the 'Petal it Forward' program, in partnership with the Society of American Florists (SAF), of which Bloem.Chocolates.Flowers.Paperie is a member. Bloem is joining more than 200 florists across the country in 'Petal it Forward.' This random acts of kindness effort is in response to the release of data by SAF showing the positive emotional benefits of flowers.

University research reveals that flowers have an immediate impact on happiness and a long term positive effect on moods. A new survey has found that when it comes to flowers, it's just as good to give as it is to receive.

Johanna Julyan, owner of Bloem's, and the Petal it Forward Team will give away 600 bouquets to people on the street. After receiving their flowers, recipients are asked to spread the happiness by gifting their extra flower bouquet (or flower), and sharing their happiness on social media using #PetalItForward.
