Florist delivers ‘smiles’ to PA nursing home

There is nothing better than flowers to bring a smile to faces in the summertime.

Williams Florist partnered with Teleflora on Wednesday to bring Make Someone Smile Day to the Port Arthur area.

Teleflora, a flower networking company that delivers flowers to various areas, has sponsored Make Someone Smile Day for the past few years.  During the event, the company helps deliver smiley face mugs filled with different flower arrangements to people who could use a smile.

Last year, Teleflora brought smiles and flowers to a local facility in Houston.  This year, they delivered 120 flower arrangements to Cypress Glenn Nursing Home in Port Arthur.  It was the first time Make Someone Smile Day had been celebrated in the area.

“The purpose of the program is to brighten people’s day and give them something to smile about,” said Alli Meaux, a member of the Teleflora Board and Williams Florist.  Teleflora plans to continue Make Someone Smile Day and hopefully expand to new areas so that they can continue spreading smiles and giving flowers to everyone.
