A Bloom With a View

Lei ChicThe big day is over and it was ALMOST perfect.

Okay, so the flower girl burst into tears and planted herself in the middle of the aisle. A few beers turned your dad’s obnoxious boss into a blooming idiot.

And the real thorn in your side was your husband’s grade school friend’s “little toast” that turned into an R-rated stand-up routine.

Thankfully, you were stunning, your husband was charming, and your flowers were so scent-sational you could barely bring yourself to toss the bouquet, let alone the hundreds of other blossoms now left behind. Lei Chic Give those petals new power. Donate them to Rebloom.

The organization is the creation of premiere event company Current Affairs. Master Designer and Director of Design Steven Boyle and his team were heartbroken watching beautiful floral work end up in the dumpster. So they began transforming old arrangements into new gifts for people in nursing homes, hospitals, and hospice.

Sprays of orchid and roses from one wedding were turned into 20 cheery presents for residents of the Palolo Chinese Home & Hospice. Lei ChicCenterpieces from a corporate gathering became 35 vibrant arrangements for St. Francis Hospice.

Volunteers hand select the freshest flowers and will even pick up your donations.

Making it simple to end even a not-so-perfect event with a beautiful gesture.

Now that's a favor worth passing on.
