A local florist shop brought smiles to Semiahmoo House last week, when it delivered 30 ‘be happy mugs’ to all the society’s female participants.
“They were so excited and had lots of smiles,” Enchanted Harvest owner Lorraine Corbett said in a statement. “Everyone was really appreciative of the flowers.”
The July 20 outreach was part of Make Someone Smile Week (July 17-23), an initiative started by Teleflora 11 years ago. The service organization donated more than 40,000 of its keepsake mugs for the project. Florists such as Enchanted Harvest created floral arrangements in the mugs to deliver to hospital patients, children living in care facilities and nursing home residents.
Enchanted Harvest combined its donations this year with LaBelle Fleur in Surrey, which also distributed mugs to seniors homes in Delta.
