Charity & Memory

Donating your flowers to local hospitals or residences would add a touch of altruism to your already giving day. Those who are hospital-bound or house-ridden would marvel at the intricate beauty, letting your big day bring some of it into their lives.


Where can you donate your flowers?

In Calgary, there are three different flower recycling groups/non-profits I am so happy to share:

Their mantra is “All Joy. No Waste”.ReBLOOM works its magic by rescuing florals from the brink of being tossed away and transforming them into delightful bouquets of joy to be donated to a charity of your choosing, all in your name! Ready to spread some happiness? Just hop on their website; it is available all across Canada!

Petals For Hope's mission is to recycle wedding and corporate event floral waste and put these twice-loved flowers into the hands of those who need them the most. They are available across North America. You can book on their website.


The friendship you share with your friends finds its perfect expression when you donate your flowers to continue the ripple effect of joy and healing that flowers offer to people. They are the seeds of understanding that life and love are transcendent, echoing beyond a wedding and supporting the life cycle with dignity.
