Lonely Bouquet for National Flower Arranging Day

Look out look out on 6th May – to see if you can find a “lonely bouquet”.

I adore the concept of “Lonely Bouquet Day”, also known by NAFAS as National Flower Arranging Day.

The idea behind Lonely Bouquet Day is simple. You create a beautiful bouquet (in my case arranged in wild garden style), and then abandon it in a prominent place where it can be adopted by a passing stranger. This idea is now a worldwide phenomenon.

The lonely bouquet is labelled, just like the lonely little Paddington Bear, with a request to be adopted and given a new home. I imagine most people who come across these gorgeous blooms think they have been left there by accident and may feel a little apprehensive about taking it otherwise. The person can then send a note back if they wish to let the bouquet’s creator know where it has gone.

I defy anyone not to have a smile of delight on their face when they discover a lonely bouquet waiting to find a home to bloom in.

Whatever your situation, whether you’ve had a good day or bad day, I defy anyone not to have a smile of delight on their face when they discover a lonely bouquet waiting to find a home to bloom in. As I’m a member of the Nantwich Flower Club, my lonely bouquet will be out and about in the Nantwich area. I wonder where yours will be?
