Ponte Winery’s night out was supposed to be an exciting fundraiser to support a Temecula school. The gala committee planned the event for months. Detailed Floral Design coached the middle school ASB as they assembled 30 white wooden boxes to be filled with fresh blooms. These centerpieces would have been auctioned off to help buy new books for an elementary school library. Then the event was cancelled, days before, like so many other events due to COVID-19. We had a cooler full of blooms, and decided they needed to bless somebody. It was time to repurpose. We created floral arrangements for neighbors and a popup floral installation for the community to bring freshness and joy to anyone passing by.
