The Donation Process 

Who receives the donated flowers?

We work with facilities ranging from nursing homes and hospices to cancer treatment centers and shelters—places where residents may enjoy an emotional boost from fresh flowers. Past recipients have included children undergoing treatment for life-threatening conditions as well as victims of sexual abuse and homelessness.

To minimize our carbon footprint, we identify local organizations to receive your donated flowers. However, we’re happy to work with you on special requests.

What do the facilities do with the flowers?

We work with facility staff to get the most out of your donations. Sometimes, our teams decorate community rooms and common areas so every resident can enjoy the flowers. In other instances, staff bring bedside bouquets to patients without family or regular visitors.

 

logistics

Where do you operate?

We operate all over the world through our licensed service providers. (Yes, we’ll come to your destination wedding!) In some locations, composting sites are limited: in these instances we research alternatives to divert floral waste from landfills.

How far in advance do I need to arrange service?

To reserve your spot on our calendar, we recommend scheduling your service at least 30 days in advance.

What if my vases are rented?

No problem! We’ll coordinate details like this with your florist and venue host. We’ll leave rented vases on-site for your vendors to retrieve and use our own when we deliver your flowers to the donor site.

 

Fees

What does it cost?

Pricing starts at $1,750 and depends on the scale of your event's floral plan. Your estimate will consider the  location of your venue and the estimated volume of floral arrangements.

Can I include Repeat Roses in my gift registry?

Yes! If you have wedding guests or relatives who would like to contribute to your Repeat Roses experience, you can register for Repeat Roses gift certificates on Zola.

What’s included?

The Repeat Roses fee covers coordination and execution of service from collection through composting, including:

• Removing all floral arrangements ordered for collection

• Evaluating and dismantling the arrangements if necessary

• Recycling extra, leftover glass containers

• Composting non-usable organic waste

• Refreshing flowers as needed prior to delivery

• Providing recycled vases/containers as needed to create multiple arrangements

• Delivering recycled, repurposed blooms to residents in nursing homes, hospice care, family shelters or other designated destination

• Acknowledgement letter and/or donation receipt facilitation (when applicable)

• Reclaiming the flowers after they've been enjoyed: expired flowers are composted and all containers are recycled.

What other fees may apply?

Sales tax depends on the state where we deliver service. On occasion, additional charges may apply: please refer to our Service Terms & Conditions for details applicable to your specific event.

What if my event is canceled?

Contact us as soon as possible so that we can make new plans for your service. If your event is canceled four weeks or more before the scheduled date, you will receive a 90% refund. If your event is canceled with less than 30 days notice, you will receive a 75% refund. If your event is canceled with less than 48 hours notice, you will receive a 50% refund. Additional fees may apply.

Can I get a tax receipt for my donation?

Donations to nonprofit organizations are tax deductible according to IRS regulations, and your donation covers both the cost of the flowers and haulage to and from our nonprofit beneficiaries. Repeat Roses ensures that the beneficiary sends you an acknowledgment letter including details of your donation. Consult our Service Terms & Conditions and your tax professional for further information. For Repeat Roses service outside of the US, please refer to that country’s regulations regarding charitable giving.
