Pink Ribbon Collection

Dandelions is going pink for October!

We’re introducing our Pink Ribbon Collection! These are a variety of pink arrangements for October: Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Dandelions donates 10% from this collection to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Eugene is hosting its 1st Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and we are excited to support the search for a cure!

Also… pink dozen roses are $10 OFF in October! This is a perfect gift to send a racer before their big day on 10.10.10

Here are a few items from our Pink Ribbon Collection:

Eugene’s Extraordinary Grandparent Winner

Congratulations to Eleanor Wallinder, our 2010 winner of Eugene’s Extraordinary Grandparent by Dandelions Flowers & Gifts. Eleanor, 94, was born in Idaho but spent much of her life in California before moving to Eugene to live with her daughter. Kristi Ruiz of Eugene nominated her grandmother because Eleanor “is the picture of everything you’d want to have in a grandma!” Kristi recalls “memories of her powerful yet humbly done ways of causing me to know she loved me and took the opportunity whenever possible to let me understand she ‘saw me’…she has become much more than just a grandmother but a true, loyal, caring, giving friend…She has faced a lot of challenges and even heartaches in her own lifetime, but uses these experiences to share hard earned insights about how to meet the various ‘tides’ life can bring. In spite of it all she remains gracious, warm, generous & upbeat. Thanking God in all the circumstances that come her own way & reminding us to be quick to do the same”. What an inspiration Eleanor is! Her love and dedication to her family truly makes her remarkable and a deserving winner for Eugene’s Extraordinary Grandparent. Kristi sums it up best, “She is GOLD!”

Thank you to everyone who entered a nomination! It was inspiring to read about all of the wonderful grandparents who give so much to those around them.
