How about a "hug" in the form of a chance to win awesome prizes?


What an adventurous summer this has been! (My summer's included making "change" and "adventure" synonymous, as a coping mechanism.) We've expanded into the office world with customized closing gifts, started working with TWO powerful business coaches, welcomed our first amazing intern, hosted our first flower crown workshops, finally joined Snapchat, and revamped almost every page of to appeal to every communication style! Wow!

Life has been busy. In the midst of all that adventure maybe you felt forgotten about, what with the missing August newsletter and all. Beloved Bloom-Es, nothing could be further from the truth. And, in lieu of the ability to give you a confirming hug, I'm going to you a sweet something. 

And that sweet something is being automatically entered in a sweet raffle. If you're on this mailing list--and if you're not, just fill in your email in the "Subscribe" space below--you're automatically entered into a raffle to get 1 of 5 prizes, including  a Customized Puzzle Bouquet delivery ($56 value) and a Customized Flower Message in a Bottle necklace ($44 value)

Stems for Strangers Part III + a Challenge (& PRIZE!) for You

Stems for Strangers has slowed to make space for the rest of our Kickstarter rewards. To be honest, this video itself is super delayed. I took this on my walk to, during, and walk home from a meet and greet with, a company I work with to bring the lost language of flowers to kids. That was a couple weeks ago now! 

That was a good experience. As you can see from the video, everyone was happy to get their gift (a lot more wanted these special meaning-imbued flowers than were willing to show up on camera!)

There isn't a video of it, but I also went to the Financial District to spread the flower love in the past couple weeks. That was a more challenging experience. Not a single person on the street would even TAKE a flower! It was a little disheartening, to tell the truth. My step-mom actually was sweet enough to join me for that experience, and she think we'd have a better shot if we stood on the corner with a basket filled with flowers and let people come to us. I think it's worth a shot. 

Until next time, a challenge (and a prize!) for you to start spreading some love, fun and connection yourself!

  1.  Pick/buy a single stem of any flower
  2.  Look up its meanings in our flower meaning database
  3. Pick a meaning to imbue it with
  4. Hold it in your hand and say the meaning in your head. 
  5. Present the imbued flower to someone. Preferably a stranger! Say, "This is the gift of ___________, according to the lost language of flowers." 
  6. Ask them if you can film them receiving the flower (Yeah, that probably means you'll have to do it all over again. It's quick!) 
  7. Post the video to Instagram with a caption that includes "Using the lost language of flowers to spread more love/fun/connection" (you can also just choose one of the three-- love, fun or connection) and tag @bloomequation. Alternatively, post it to Facebook (same caption) and tag our page, The Bloom Equation.
  8. We'll contact you within the week to let you choose your prize! 

Love to you all!
