Local Florists to deliver Pre Super-Bowl Smiles to Metro Detroit Detroit, Michigan – The consumer marketing committee of the Michigan Floral Association have organized a group of retail florists to come together to deliver “Super Smiles” the week of January 23rd. These local professional florists will be spreading “Super Smiles” all over Metro Detroit in the form of fresh flower arrangements.
The Consumer Marketing Committee wants to spread the excitement of the Super Bowl throughout the Greater Detroit Area. They organized a group of local florists that will professionally arrange and deliver nearly 2000 “Super Smile” arrangements to Metro Detroiters, including Fire Departments, Children’s Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Police Departments, Teachers, Coaches, just to name a few. The arrangements will include a smiley face and professionally designed fresh flowers.
‘Our goal is to bring smiles to the people of Metro Detroit,” says Rodney P. Crittenden, Executive Vice President of the Michigan Floral Association, “we want to concentrate our deliveries to recipients who are deserving of a Super Smile and who may not receive
flowers very often.”
The consumer marketing committee is working on bringing consumers back to local professional retail florists, where you get personal attention and the freshest flowers available in the area.
