Flowers are a beautiful part of any wedding or event! You've put a lot of time and money into your wedding centerpieces and other florals for your special day! Hate the idea of them being thrown away after your celebration? Donate them! There is an organization in Nashville called the Petal Project who will pick up your flowers after your reception and repurpose them with the help of many volunteers. Petal Project helps your flowers live on and puts a smile on many faces.
The Petal Project is comprised of a group of volunteers and residents of Lantern at Morning Pointe of Brentwood who donate their time to Petal Project. We work with local Nashville florists - particularly Geny's Wholesale, event planners and other available resources who offer their flowers and vases to Petal Project. Flowers donated from these organizations, businesses, and people are those that have not been sold prior to the stores receiving freshly cut flowers or that were used at a recent event. These flowers are still in great condition and our volunteers collect and arrange them into individual bouquets and then deliver them to assisted living patients around Nashville, TN . The Petal Project's goal is to deliver love and smiles to those that need it most.
If you are interested in donating your flowers or need more information please send them an email on Facebook or contact Rebecca Kewley Holladay at PetalProjectoftn@gmail.com or visit them at nashvillepetalproject.com.
Our couple from this past weekend donated 10 centerpieces and other assorted florals to the Petal Project and they were able to make 33 arrangements which were delivered to assisted living facilities in the Nashville area!
Here are examples of some of the beautiful centerpieces which were made from the donated centerpieces pictured above.
