As florists, my team and I are inspired by giving. We are honored to facilitate the sharing of love, gratitude, sympathy and celebration between members of this community with every arrangement we deliver. Especially during pandemic times, helping people connect, communicate and share beauty on a daily basis has been deeply satisfying. We’re also thankful to be able to participate in providing flowers as a regular mood-boost for our subscribers, and to share our skills with fellow flower enthusiasts who learn to design gorgeous, nature-inspired arrangements at our hands-on flower workshops.

With the support of the generous South Orange and Maplewood communities, we have been fortunate enough to participate in charitable giving supporting our local frontline healthcare workers, the hardworking teachers and staff of our school system, the East Orange Animal Alliance and the Equal Justice Initiative. Another charity we are particularly passionate about is the Moms Helping Moms Foundation, which provides families in New Jersey with essential baby items. Each Mother’s Day, we donate 10% of our profits to support their work, and we participate in their Period and Diaper Drives as much as possible. When our new shop opens, we look forward to collecting donations for these drives in person on a regular basis.
