Walker Flower Shop in Huron will be taking part in the Society of American Florists’ National Random Act promotion called “Petal it Forward” on Wednesday.
Ann Edelman, owner, said her staff will be handing out random bouquets to people in the community, along with a second bouquet for them to give to someone else. Edelman is shown holding two of 100 bouquets she ordered to be given away.
Surveys show that 80 percent of people say receiving flowers from others makes them happy, and 88 percent say giving flowers makes them feel happy — that’s double the happiness for each set of bouquets handed out.
Edelman said her shop is among three or four florists in South Dakota taking part in the program.
