It’s a Thursday in late April, and in the middle of the pandemic, a customer came to us in urgent need of rose petals for a proposal. Sadly, her brother, who has proudly served our country in the military, was diagnosed with stage 4 esophageal cancer and was beginning treatment the following week. Before starting treatment though, he wanted to propose to his girlfriend.
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, finding rose petals was proving nearly impossible. Luckily though, they found us! Since our specialty is preserving real rose petals, we can hold on to stock much longer than florists can. We personally packaged and shipped the large order within hours, and they arrived the very next day! Everything turned out so beautifully, and she said yes!! As you can see from the photos, everything turned out beautifully. The pride and joy we take in having been a part of this monumental event in this young couple’s lives cannot truly be put in to words, and we hope to be a part of their wedding day as well.
Here at Petal Garden, we take pride in our ability to accommodate our customers’ last minute needs. From forgetting to purchase the petals for your flower girl basket, to making the last minute decision to have a petal toss at your exit, to other plans falling through, we have heard it all. If you find yourself in urgent need of our petals, please do not hesitate to reach out. We can efficiently help you figure out just how many you will need, and we can also help you determine your best shipping option. This is what we do, and we know we are the best at it – trust us!
