“I absolutely love flowers, but it's always seemed unfortunate to me at weddings I've gone to when they are only able to be enjoyed for such a short amount of time. I was so excited to learn from my florist about the Forget Me Knot Flowers organization. I loved their mission and how they give back to local community organizations.
Being able to start our married life on a charitable note was important to us and we felt amazing knowing we were donating to such a good cause. Contacting and working with Leona was easy - she seamlessly picked up my centerpieces after my wedding was over. She also sent me lots of photos and videos after my wedding so I could see how happy the volunteers and recipients were!
If you're looking for a unique way to share the love with others - I highly recommend donating your flowers through Forget Me Knot Flowers!”
"Working with FMKF was one of the best wedding decisions we made! If you’re hiring a florist, the next person you should contact is Leona. She was so gracious and a joy to work with. Leona coordinated with our venue to pickup all of our flowers the morning after our wedding. We were doubly glad that they were able to spread the love we felt on our wedding day to those that need it most. We can’t say enough good things about FMKF- the world needs more people like Leona and her generous volunteers!"
Love, Devin & Rob

"When I say I love my job I truly mean it. Today we were lucky enough to have a wonderful group of people from Forget Me Knot Flowers to come in. They provided my residents with flowers arrangements JUST BECAUSE. When my residents asked what they were for, and why they were receiving them they were told BECAUSE YOU ARE LOVED. Their faces lit up with smiles.
It's so amazing how a little gesture can mean so much to someone. What a wonderful organization!! Thank you for all you do to make people smile. Having the kids help was really fun for our residents."
Jenna McGrail, Activity Director - The Fountains at Cedar Parke

“My husband and I didn’t want our beautiful wedding flowers to go to waste - so when we heard about Forget Me Knot we thought this was a great opportunity to help make someone else smile! Working with Leona and her team was absolutely flawless. They collected our flowers right after the wedding and even provided cards for each of our reception tables to let our guests know we would be donating our flowers. We were also delighted to receive pictures of the families from Ronald McDonald House who got to enjoy our repurposed flowers. I would definitely recommend using Forget Me Knot to give your flowers a second meaningful purpose!” -Jessica Ansley
“One of the most special and unique aspects of our wedding day was using Forget Me Knot Flowers - Floral Re-Purposing. I knew I wanted to give back in some way, instead of providing favors to our guests and this was the perfect way to give back. As a nurse working during the pandemic, I know how lonely and isolating it has been for my patients and was happy to bring a smile to some of my very own patients at Penn Medicine Hospice. Additionally, Leona was wonderful and reached out to Little Flower Manor, the nursing home of my late grandmother, to deliver some of my flowers there. It meant so much to my family to be able to honor her in that way and bring some joy to the residents of the nursing home. Leona was such a pleasure to work with and we loved seeing the photos of the smiling faces receiving our re-purposed flowers.
Thank you Forget Me Knot!” -Maddie Wechsler
Our hearts are so warmed to see the images of everyone receiving our wedding florals repurposed. The piece on 6ABC was such a special highlight on all the hard work and intention involved in spreading some love! Especially in this holiday season, it’s a blessing to be able to provide some joy to those who may need it. Working with Forget Me Knot was as easy as it comes - having you coordinate directly with Corinne, our florist, was a perfect arrangement (pun intended!) and ensured a seamless breakdown at the end of the evening. From a paperwork and contract standpoint, everything was super easy to follow and understand, and payment via PayPal was very convenient. I’ve passed along Forget Me Knot details to many of my other engaged friends in the area in the hopes that they take advantage of this great way to give back! Thanks for all that you and your team of volunteers do, especially in this extra crazy couple of years the pandemic has brought on! -Meredith + Jamie
