Make it for Mom 2014

It’s quickly approaching that time year when we celebrate the wonderful women in our lives we call “Mom.” Every year, the Saturday morning before Mother’s Day, we open our store to as many children who will come and help them create their very own personal mini-floral arrangements to present to Mom the next morning.
MIFM 2009

This year, the 18th year of this annual event, Make it for Mom will be Saturday, May 10th from 10:30am to noon. The kids will have a marvelous time making arrangements with a personal touch that only they can add; the adults will receive a $5.00 in-store coupon to go towards any purchases they make that day; and any donations we receive will go 100% to the Relief Nursery.

Mark your calendar so you and your kids don’t miss out.

Eugene’s Favorite Mom 2014

eugene mother's day contestMothers are extraordinary. They’re not super heroes with an abundance of super-human abilities, but they could fool us. Because we’re around them all the time, it’s easy to take them – and their seeming super-powers – for granted.

The truth is we know how human they are, but these ordinary, every-day women find it within themselves to love, give and sacrifice in ways that can astound us.

2011 Eugene’s Favorite Mom: Shannon Schroeder

After receiving close to 40 entries for the 1st Annual Eugene’s Favorite Mom, Springfield mom Shannon  Schroeder was named Eugene’s Favorite Mom.  Dandelions, in conjunction with co-sponsors Bello Day Spa, Hartwick’s Kitchen Store, and King Estate Winery, delivered an amazing prize package worth over $450 on Saturday to Shannon with her family looking on.

Each entry told us about a mom who deserved pampering and we wish we could have awarded them all!! It really was amazing to read the inspiring stories about women here in the Eugene/Springfield area written by those who loved them. There could only be one winner, however, and Shannon’s story of perseverance, faith and dedication to her family won the hearts of all who reviewed the entries.
