Only in Washington, Washington DC that is!
Only in Washington, Washington DC that is!No one can stop Garden Vivien from making a delivery in Washington DC. Well almost no one.
Only this morning one of our drivers attempted a delivery near the intersection of 15th and L Streets Northwest, pulled up to the front of the building when he was approached by a DC police officer and a Secret Service agent. Keith politely exited his vehicle and told the authorities that “I only need five minutes” to which the agent replied, I only need five minutes to tow your truck.”
Needless to say, the flowers arrangement “Burgundy or Bust” did not get delivered but, all’s well that ends well. I spoke with the client and explained the circumstances and after having a good laugh I suggested that since we would not be able to deliver until Thursday or Friday why not donate the flowers to the VA, Veterans Administration.
Garden Vivien has a relationship with the good people of the VA that serve America's brave soldiers, donating flowers that return from event work. The professional staff and patients are always surprised and grateful.
We here at Garden Vivien take corporate giving and strategic partnerships with many social service and quasi-military organizations in support of those that serve very seriously. Happy that today’s incident turned into a good deed.
Garden Vivien is a boutique, luxury floral design company serving the entire Metropolitan Washington area - from Arlington to Great Falls, from Bethesda to Potomac to Rockville and of course in our hometown of Silver Spring, Maryland. Your patronage helps us support these efforts to Pay It Forward.
