2018 Petal It Forward
On October 24, our staff loved supporting the wonderful industry event Petal It Forward where florists nationwide randomly surprised peopleon the street with flowers in 410 cities in all 50 states, plus D.C. Lucky recipients received two bouquets — one to keep, and one to share with a friend, family member, co-worker, or even a complete stranger. There were a lot of smiles going around as the country experienced flower power.
The Fall Annual Festival was a great success

The top seven Theories of Profit are a short list of what Profit is.
These are all captivating articles or theories but how does it apply to you? For me it’s the bottom line of the balance sheet, what is reported for taxes, the line that shareholders look at, and like every other business…there is always room for improvement.
