The Petal Connection Difference
The Petal Connection is an incredible group of volunteers who deliver joy to hospice patients and seniors in our community. Flowers are repurposed to create colorful bedside bouquets using flowers and vases that are donated from local grocers, florists, local floral growers, corporate events, weddings, and community members. Donated flowers are lovingly arranged into beautiful bouquets and delivered to those who need them the most! Such a simple gesture makes a big difference in our community. Spreading kindness . . . one petal at a time!

Flowers are known to promote good health and have a positive effect on the well-being of both the recipient and the one who creates the bouquet, everyone benefits! All efforts for the sole purpose of letting the recipient know they are not forgotten and they matter in this world.

“Thank you for the wonderful floral bouquet arrangement! It brought a happy feeling for me. I’m a 93 year old lady who loves flowers. It was so kind of you to make the bouquet! It really perked my day!”
“My mom went onto hospice late September or early October 2014. Shortly after, your lovely bouquet arrived in her room. She always loved flowers. She passed shortly after her 95th birthday that year. When I cleaned out her room I saved the card with intent to send a note. Found the card recently while cleaning out stuff and it brought me joy remembering your kindness. So here’s the card. Just over a year later.”
“I wanted to write to tell you that yesterday our Hospice social worker, Hayden brought us a bouquet you made. What joy you brought us!!! Dad and I have been caring for my precious Mom 24/7. Your flowers were a boost we badly needed. Such a small act of kindness on your part was gigantic to us. A simple “Thank You” doesn’t seem to represent our immense gratitude. May God Bless you for your sweet gesture!”
“Today was a horrible day for me, taking care of a loved one dying, wondering if today will be the day you lose them. A chaplain from hospice brought a beautiful bouquet that brought a smile to my heart. Thank you for an act of a kindness. That will always be remembered.”
“I just wanted to write to say thank you for the beautiful bouquet by your volunteer, Kelly. Our hospice nurse brought it by when she first met my mother and it brightened our spirits. Although my mother has passed, the kindness of those who comforted her and my family during this time will not be forgotten. I wanted to be sure to let you know that.
I hope you can continue to do the work that you do.
“I am a resident at the Atria and I was pleasantly surprised to receive the beautiful flower arrangement from Eleanor. You were so thoughtful and I sincerely thank you!
YOU MADE MY DAY!!”
“In this crazy mixed up world, focus on doing something that brings light to others.
For me, it’s volunteer work and sharing my love of flowers through mentoring and making floral arrangements for hospice patients and their families each week at The Petal Connection.
There’s no better way to start my week ~ Happy Monday
“A social worker called and shared that he delivered a bouquet of flowers to man who was non-verbal and had dementia. He said that even though he could not speak, he was fascinated with the flowers and had to touch and smell each one of them. He thanked us for giving his patient this beautiful experience.”
“I just want to express a sincere thank you for the thoughtful bouquet of flowers for my wife who just came home from the hospital last Wednesday. The past week and preceding months of knowing the dire time ahead did not have much joy in our lives… The flowers added a spark of color and comfort to what will be a long journey for my wife as we endure her final days dealing with Alzheimer’s dementia.
Thank you for your generosity and compassion,
Jim & Joyce”
