PRINCETON — On Wednesday, Oct. 24, Flowers by Julia will be hitting the streets of Princeton, handing out bouquets of flowers to random people, as part of the Society of American Florists’ “Petal It Forward” program.

Flowers by Julia is joining hundreds of florists across the country in this random-acts-of-kindness effort. This effort is in response to the release of data by SAF, showing the positive emotional benefits of flowers.

After receiving their flowers, recipients are asked to spread the happiness by gifting their extra bouquet to share with a loved one, co-worker, or even a stranger.

“We see the positive impact, day in and day out, when we make our flower deliveries,” said Julia Cain of Flowers by Julia. “People love to get flowers ‘just because,’ so we wanted to create random smiles on Wednesday, and give people a chance to do the same for someone else,” Cain said.

“The impact of giving or receiving flowers is powerful and memorable. It can turn an ordinary day into an extraordinary one.”
