Gift Idea: Weekly Flower Subscription from Petals for the People

12 05 2010

Looking for ideas for a wedding gift or for bridesmaids gift? How about a subscription to high quality flowers?

Petals for the People flower subscription DCMy friend Sarah von Pollaro, of Urban Petals, started a new service called Petals for the People. For $25 a week (or every other week), subscribers get an ever-changing bundle of mixed seasonal flowers and greens, personally selected by Sarah. Each bundle is large enough to make 2-3 arrangements. Subscribers can pick the bundles up at one of their designated  locations in DC, Maryland, and Virginia or they can deliver for an additional $10.50. You can follow Sarah’s step by step “how to” videos on how to arrange your bundles on the Petal Power blog, as well as more information on the flowers you received.

Check out Sarah’s segment on Fox5 Morning News teaching me and her Mom how to make arrangements from a sample bundle on the 2nd and 3rd video. We had so much fun (check out the still photos here too)

When I went home, I practiced the hand tied floral arranging skills Sarah had just taught me.

Practicing my grip.

Check out my practice session photos. Not bad! Now I can make emergency bouquets if necessary! — Vicky
