Giving Back

“We rise by lifting others.” - Robert Ingersoll

We love to petal it forward! Philanthropy is woven into the fabric of our identity as a business and gives us an opportunity to support our local cancer community.

Healing Blooms Flower Arranging Class

It turns out that flowers do more than brighten a space - they are healing, too. Research shows that flowers can lower anxiety, reduce stress, improve mood, and enhance overall emotional wellness. We provide an outlet for cancer patients that is both creative and healing, at no cost to the patient. Everything is taken care of by our amazing team! Fresh flowers, vases, and all materials included, as well as guided instructions to create beautiful, uplifting arrangements.

Classes are taught virtually by Viola Floral founder Jelena Trifunovic, M.A., a floral designer, seasoned K-12 science educator, and mother of three, whose passion for giving back is centered on the love for her mother, who passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2016. Jelena and her mom Luby often arranged flowers together, and now Jelena is honored to share their joy of flowers to provide healing through floral therapy.
