Petal It Forward: 2016 Events

SAFPetalForward_logo_800

On October 19, 2016, the Society of American Florists and florists nationwide randomly surprised people on the street with flowers in more than 235 cities in 50 states. Lucky recipients received two bouquets — one to keep, and one to share with a friend, family member, co-worker, or even a complete stranger. There were a lot of smiles going around as the country experienced flower power. See below for a list of the Petal It Forward events by city and state.
