By far and away, though, watching the rush of shock and then absolute joy on Charlie’s bus driver’s face when he handed them to her elevated our whole family’s mood for the week. I so wish I had had my camera to capture her reaction. As a family, we had the opportunity to remember how much more happiness we get from giving rather than receiving. We all know this, right? But honestly, it’s so easy to forget.
As a result of the bouquet delivery, I even got a wonderful surprise myself – an hour of quality time with one of my dearest friends in Baltimore. It was worth every penny and moment spent. So go do it – go spread a little bit of your own surprise love.
How to Wrap a Mini-Bouquet of Thanks DIY
Now, divide your flowers into mini-bouquets, evenly parsing out the juicy flowers and then adding greens and fillers as you go. Wrap each bouquet individually as shown below.
Angle your flowers so the heads are at the corner. Bring the left side of the wrap over to line up with the stems of the bouquet. Wrap and roll, folding over the tail end of the wrap for an even edge on the front. Tie with some twine and trim the ends. Now, go deliver and watch the joy grow!
