Blumz Petals It Forward In Detroit!

Last Wednesday, October 19th Team Blumz drove two vans of flowers to Campus Maritus Park in Downtown Detroit to hand out 1000+ bouquets to unsuspecting Detroiters.  We planned to be at the park for about three hours but all the bouquets were gone in less than 45 minutes! In fact, there was a large crowd of locals waiting for us and waving when they saw our vans pull up.
Our team of six quickly handed out bouquets to everyone that greeted us and then set up our flower cart in the park to start surprising the people of Detroit.  We gave each person that we encountered a bouquet to take home for themselves and one to give to someone else to make them smile, the way they were smiling when we gave them the bouquets in the first place. Everyone knows that it is fun to receive flowers but we suspect that they learned something we already knew. It's even more exciting to give flowers to someone else and watch their face light up with joy.
Our team expected to make everyone else smile on Wednesday but instead found out that at the end of it all we were the ones that were grinning.   It was a pleasure to take some time out of the day to do spread some love and positivity in the heart of the Motor City.  We truly appreciated all the smiles, hugs and sincere thank you's that we received!
We know that there is power in flowers and we encourage you to petal it forward in your own lives whenever you can. This can be any type of kind gesture. For example, you could buy the coffee for the person in line after you at Starbucks, or you could help a friend move, you could even  send someone an unexpected bouquet of flowers.

The Story of Sweetest Day




Have you ever wondered why we celebrate Sweetest Day every October?  Well, here is the origin story of the holiday.

"Over 60 years ago, a Cleveland man, believing that the city’s orphans and shut-ins too often felt forgotten and neglected, conceived the idea of showing them that they were remembered by the distribution of small gifts. With the help of his friends and neighbors, he distributed these small remembrances on a Saturday in October. During the years that followed, other Clevelanders began to participate in the celebration ceremony, which came to be called “Sweetest Day.”

 In time, the Sweetest Day idea of spreading cheer to the underprivileged was broadened to include everyone and became an occasion for remembering others with a kind act or a small remembrance. And soon, the idea spread to other cities all over the country. Sweetest Day is celebrated on the third Saturday in October as a day to make someone happy. It is an occasion which offers all of us an opportunity to remember not only the sick, aged and orphaned, but also friends, relatives and associates whose helpfulness and kindness we have enjoyed. It is a reminder that a thoughtful word or deed enriches life and gives it meaning".

Many of us see Sweetest Day as a holiday for couples like Valentine's Day, but its actually a very different holiday.  It is a day to do something sweet for all the people in your life! So, celebrate Sweetest Day with all the sweets in your life this Saturday, October 15th!

Fresh From the Garden is Back for a Limited Time Only!

When you think of Michigan weather you probably think of snow. It's true that we have some very harsh winters but we also have really beautiful summers. For a few months of the year the sun peeks its head out from behind the clouds and the colors of summer start to bloom all around us. Blumz by JRDesgins likes to take full advantage of the summer by planting our own flower garden where we grow some of the most beautiful buds that you have ever seen.

This year's garden features an assortment of fresh flowers including yarrow, dahlias, campanula, dusty miller, hosta leaves, echinacea, sunflowers, snapdragons, marigold , zinnias, gomphrena, feverfew and more. We will be using these fresh Michigan grown flowers to create unique arrangements for our customers that will last,  there is nothing better than getting something fresh from the source.

If you would like to purchase an arrangement made fresh from the garden click here or stop in and pick out something that we just picked!
