PickOntario displays helps spread floral excitement in the core of Canada’s largest city.
October 2016 – Thousands of Torontonians enjoyed a sampling of floral delights one day this past summer, all courtesy of pickOntario.
Yonge-Dundas Square was transformed into a beautiful floral haven.
“Happiness in Bloom was created to make people smile, remind them how beautiful nature is, and increase awareness of Ontario-grown flowers and potted plants, and we did just that,” said Jesseline Gough, marketing coordinator at pickOntario.
“We continued our pay-it-forward idea and gave each person two flowers – one to brighten their day, and one to give to a friend, a colleague, or a total stranger.”
PickOntario, a popular program of Flowers Canada Ontario, took this event to a whole new level and gave Torontonians the full “Happiness in Bloom” experience, which included:
- A Flower Wall: A 10×10 floral art installation made up of fresh Ontario flowers.
- A Flower Tag Station: Where guests were invited to write a personalized message on the tag of the flower they gave away that same day.
- A Flower Crown Bar: Where a flower expert was available to assist guests as they created their personalized flower crowns.
- A Social Photo Print Station: A custom photo experience for participants to share online, and many of them did.
