Interview with Jerome Raska, President of the Great Lakes Floral Association
Here’s the script for the ads:
There’s a reason we feel happy to receive them…
and just as happy to send them.
Because studies prove that flowers reduce anxiety, increase happiness, and help us live in the moment.
Best part is, you don’t even need a prescription.
Which is why the best time for flowers… is always now.
And nothing replaces hugs
Like a bouquet of smiling flowers.
Let the ones you love live in the moment with you… through flowers.
