But I used to design the centerpieces for the St. James (Catholic Church) Jubilation events, which are their annual fundraiser. They sent me a thank-you note with the Eiffel Tower on it, and I started to think 'Eiffel Flower' would be a great name for a business. I had a brief stint own... http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/arlington-heights/news/ct-ahp-shout-out-mike-brown-tl-0208-20180201-story.html

Each weekend for the last 20 months, a different volunteer group has crowded into the Davis basement to give wedding flowers a second life. Social media and old-fashioned word of mouth convey the call for help. The couple’s daughter, Christina, started the whole thing when she suggested after her own wedding two years ago that her flowers — so extravagant and ephemeral — be donated to extend their usefulness. “So a seed was planted,” said Davis, unable to let go of floral metaphors. “We’ve delivered 3,000 bedside bouquets and logged 1,000 volunteer hours since our beginning.” !--googleoff: all... http://www.philly.com/philly/news/wedding-flowers-from-saturday-night-repurposed-to-brighten-the-lives-of-seniors-patients-by-sunday-morning-20180603.html
