This weekend the annual convention of the Texas State Florists Association will take place in San Marcos, Texas, and afterward many of the floral displays will be donated to the Central Texas Medical Center.
San Marcos Local News reported that following the convention, many local flower-enthusiasts will rearrange some of the flowers on display and deliver 150 bouquets to the hospital.
"We are so delighted to know that patients and hospital staff at this fine medical institution will have an opportunity to enjoy the most magnificent floral arrangements florists can create," Jack Weatherford, president of the association, told the news source. "This is part of the excitement of the convention every year, wherever it is held, that the Texas florists who attend the convention annually know that their creations are not going to waste, but will have a glorious second life at local hospitals."
Floral bouquets are an excellent gift for people who are spending time in a hospital. According to research performed at Harvard University in 2006, flowers can help boost the mood of hospital patients within a week.
