“The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” – Coretta Scott King
A Night In Bloom considers supporting the community we work, live and raise our families in as one of our top priorities. To that end, we have committed to donating a portion of our retainer fees this spring to Miller Middle School. It is our hope that the wonderful couples we work with will appreciate knowing that by choosing to book with us, they are also helping to support a very deserving school and the beautiful children who attend there.
Its not uncommon for staff and students alike to feel the pressures of the world around us. One only has to watch the nightly news to see that current events can cause feelings of anxiety, negativity and depression in people of all ages. However, studies have shown us that exposure to flowers can reduce these for men, women, the elderly, and children.
“Common sense tells us that flowers make us happy, … Now, science shows that not only do flowers make us happier than we know, they have strong positive effects on our emotional well-being.”
– Jeannette Haviland-Jones, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology at Rutgers and lead researcher of a study on the subject.

So in addition to our financial contribution, A Night In Bloom is working on ideas for other ways we can use the power of flowers to bring joy and happiness to the staff & students of Miller Middle School. We look forward to sharing more of this with you as we finalize the details! And if you have any ideas or suggestions please feel free to share them with us. Thank you for helping us help others!
