The International Lonely Bouquet Day

Hello everyone,

Today I want to share a great project with you. Do you know "the Lonely Bouquet". This a project by Emily Avenson, an American girl living in the Belgian Countryside. That's how she define her idea:

A movement dedicated to spreading happiness and smiles, one flower at a time!

The ultimate goal of this initiative is to dedicate one day a year to making strangers happy. The method chosen is… flowers! and this Sunday (30th of June) is the first International Lonely Bouquet Day.


How to participate in the first International ?

All you have to do is:

  1. pick flowers fresh from the garden or forage straight from nature. If you don't have a garden, like myself, you can of course go to the market or to the flower shop.
  2. arrange the flowers in a small, recycled jar
  3. add a signature “take me!” tag (you can download my template in English, French and German here: Lonely Bouquet - Tags), and
  4. leave the arrangement behind for a lucky local to take home. Voila! You have just delivered a handful of flowers that will surely put a smile on a stranger’s face.

To sign up for the event, please pop on over The Lonely Bouquet facebook page! If you want more information, please visit Emily's website.





So I hope you are now motivated to help us spreading happiness and smiles, one flower at a time. I will definitely take part as a flower girl!
