SPOKANE, Wash. – Petal It Forward is a movement aimed at putting smiles on people’s faces.

Johanna Julyan at Bloem in River Park Square decided she would bring the national movement to Spokane.

Julyan and her team will be handing out two flowers to 500 random people on Wednesday. She is encouraging those folks to then pass one of the flowers onto another person.

Just like the chocolates Julyan sells, the Petal It Forward movement aims at making people happy.

“We want you to get the feeling of how wonderful it is to give a flower away. It’s really nice to receive one, but just as nice to give them away,” said Julyan.
