Whenever you look at the flower you see nature, you see hope, you see beauty and that is the power of the flower," said Davis.
While Davis pays it forward by delivering the flowers, those receiving the flowers say it brings a postive ripple effect within the facility.
"Who can look at flowers and not smile," asked Nathan Anderson, executive director of Rosewalk Village Nursing Home in Lafayette.
Rosewalk Village nursing home is the first of many facilities on Davis' list of giving. Anderson said he sees this movement having a great impact even after we make it through the pandemic.
"To be supported by a local business, we can just continue those relationships here in Greater Lafayette and just be tighter as a whole community," said Anderson.
Davis is accepting individually wrapped goods, clean used vases and baskets, and monetary donations for the Good Samaritan Project. You can find information through the flower shop's official Facebook page or email Paula Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org.

If a sunflower blooms in a city, does it make a difference? - Columbia Chronicle
Even though it is only Sunflower City’s third year of operation and the sunflowers were cut earlier than expected, McHugh hopes these seasonal flowers will bloom again next year to bring joy and sustainability to the Washington Park area.
“When something beautiful is within one’s own neighborhood, that is shown to have a different effect from when that same natural beauty is halfway across town,” McHugh said.

Entrepreneur finds formula to grow Detroit Flower Company - Fairfield Citizen
In the future, Hampton hopes to open a flower truck or store with a full team. But the journey to get to this moment has been full of life-changing events.
Hampton started a summer job in 10th grade at a Thrifty Florist location near her home. She was hired, but in just two weeks, she had become sick with sepsis. The life-threatening condition happens when an infection is already present, but it travels through the body, damaging tissue, and potentially causing organ failure and even death.
“I just remember calling the lady who was managing the place,” said Hampton. “My mom was telling her that I wouldn’t be able to come back and I would probably have to be in the hospital for two to three weeks, which I was. But she ended up letting me keep my job.”
Hampton’s job gave her two weeks to recover. After she learned all of the Thrifty Florist techniques, soon, customers began looking for her to do their flower arrangements.
She eventually left her job and went to college at Ferris State University. But when she returned home to the metro Detroit, she realized she had to find a new job. So Hampton moved on to working as a fitness and yoga coach, which she is certified in.
It wasn’t until 2018 when Detroit Flower Company started. Her first customer would buy flower arrangements every week. Hampton would also receive a lot of orders on Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day. But in 2020, things changed again.
When the pandemic started earlier this year, Hampton was forced to leave both her fitness and restaurant jobs. So she started making flower arrangements full-time at home and posting photos of them on social media. At the time, she had about 700 followers on Instagram.
Now, her number of followers increases every day, and she has more than 6,460. Hampton said she made sales of $10,000 just in the month of July. Prices of flower arrangements range from $50 to $420.
But behind the scenes, things haven’t been easy. She never had a set place to do her flower arrangements. Then Hampton hit a road block in August when she was forced to move because she had a business running in her condo, which she didn’t know was not allowed. She was also delivering all of the arrangements by herself.
She moved back to Detroit and now has her own space to make arrangements and custom paint the flowers. Hampton also has a delivery driver to lessen the load on herself. Since July, she has completed over 400 sales.
When creating the arrangements, Hampton said, “I just have an eye. But for the most part, it’s the customers. They put together the bouquets and flowers they want, and I just bring the vision to life.”
Hampton hopes to find time to hang out with her friends and ... Oct 15, 2020
Detailed Floral Design rebrands, expands to offer wedding flowers in Fallbrook and Bonsall - Valley News
Detailed Floral Design donated over 12 dozen cream Vendela roses in table centerpieces Sunday, Nov. 10, for a Vivian’s Hope fundraiser at Fazeli Cellars in Temecula. Vivian’s Hope is a nonprofit whose volunteers give their time and talents to raise funds to provide medical care for babies at Tender Hearts Babies Home in Munoko, Uganda.

“I am honored to help plan and assemble the centerpieces, which were auctioned off at the annual event,” DeHaan said.
DeHaan grew up in Fallbrook. Through Fallbrook’s National FFA Organization, she learned the art of floral design, and after several years of study, she won the California State FFA Floriculture Finals. This honor is the equivalent of winning a Grammy Award for floral design at that level.
