Greetings to All the Beautiful People


Welcome to our small but cozy rooftop home. Here, surrounded by the beauty of nature, you may find the perfect spot to begin your journey. Our sponsored projects, in partnership with Hepburn Magazine and Pollen’s Facebook page, are in honor of survivors of domestic violence. Together, we endeavor to create healing environments and support the process of growth and love.

At Gorgeous Orchids, we believe that flowers have the power to heal and make a difference. Since 2017, we have been involved in various events and fundraisers, including the House of Ruth DC fundraiser in 2018 and our Spring 2019 project. Through these initiatives, we aim to connect survivors with the healing process through the beauty of orchids.

Our talented designers work tirelessly to create gorgeous arrangements of Phalaenopsis orchids, using colors that are soothing and spot-on. If you are in need of some online entertainment or want to find a way to get involved, please consider supporting our cause. Your donation will always be appreciated and prior reports have shown that our solutions for healing are truly significant.

So come on in and welcome to our home. Let the beauty and love of orchids surround you as we grow together in the process of healing. We are here for you every step of the way.

Pollen’s flower donation program

Welcome to Pollen’s flower donation program! We are excited to introduce our new initiative that connects flower growers, designers, and survivors of domestic violence. Our goal is to make a positive impact in the lives of those affected by domestic violence by providing them with gorgeous flower arrangements.

With the support of our partners, businesses, and local communities, we have been able to launch this program in 2018. Through this program, we aim to bring joy and beauty to the lives of survivors and help them heal.

As part of this program, we have partnered with the House of Ruth DC, a local organization that provides solutions for women and families affected by domestic violence. Together, we are determined to create a safe and nurturing environment for survivors to grow and thrive.

Here’s how you can get involved:

  1. Donate flowers: If you are a flower grower or designer, we welcome your support! By donating your beautiful blooms, you can help make a difference in someone’s life. Contact us to find out how you can contribute.
  2. Sponsor arrangements: Help us create stunning flower arrangements by sponsoring the cost of materials. Your contribution will allow us to create more arrangements and reach more survivors.
  3. Get connected: Follow us on Facebook and stay updated with our latest news, events, and fundraisers. Your support and engagement can make a big difference.
  4. Make a donation: If you want to support our program financially, you can make an online donation through our website. Your contribution will directly help survivors and enable us to continue this important work.

Through our flower donation program, we aim to honor survivors of domestic violence and remind them of their resilience and beauty. Flowers have a healing and uplifting effect, and we believe they can bring hope and joy even in the most challenging times.

By participating in Pollen’s flower donation program, you are not only helping survivors, but also supporting the local flower industry and promoting the importance of giving back to the community.

Thank you for joining us in this meaningful cause. Together, we can make a difference, one flower at a time.

Welcome Gorgeous

At “Welcome Gorgeous,” we understand the healing power of flowers, and we want to share that with you. Orchids, specifically Phalaenopsis orchids, are known for their ability to rebloom, even in unfavorable environments. They can rebloom on the roof, rebloom on the window sill, rebloom anywhere. Just like these resilient orchids, we want to help you find the strength to rebloom and thrive, especially during these challenging times.

Through our online program, you can learn how to grow and care for orchids, help the reblooming process, and even enjoy the antiviral properties found in some orchids. Did you know that certain orchids, like the Phalaenopsis orchids, produce antiviral compounds that may help during the fall and menstrual problems? By learning about orchids and engaging in orchid care, you may also vie for the love of these stunning flowers.

Here at “Welcome Gorgeous,” we partner with local orchid growers and water conservation organizations to ensure that our projects are eco-friendly. Our orchids are grown in sustainable environments, and as part of our commitment to the planet, a portion of every donation goes towards creating solutions for water conservation and pollution. So not only can you enjoy the beauty of orchids, but you can also help make a positive impact on our environment.

We welcome you to explore our gallery and see some of the stunning orchid varieties we work with. From the classic white Phalaenopsis to the vibrant colors of the Oncidium, you’ll find a wide range of orchids to choose from. And with your support, we can continue to honor our commitment to creating a more sustainable future for these beautiful flowers and the planet.

Did you know that the source of pollens in orchids, called pollinia, actually looks like a pair of eyes? It’s a fascinating fact that adds to the allure of this extraordinary flower. So, if you’re ready to bring the beauty and healing power of orchids into your life, please join us at “Welcome Gorgeous.” Together, we can make a difference.

Always stay connected and follow us on Instagram and Facebook for the latest updates on our projects and fundraisers. We have a special procedure called “Rebloom on the Roof” that you don’t want to miss, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for “Welcome Gorgeous.”

Thank you for your support, and welcome to the world of orchids!

Big Online Solutions for Small Local Businesses

In today’s digital age, having a strong online presence is essential for the success of small local businesses. With the help of big online solutions, these businesses can reach a wider audience and compete with larger companies.

Small local businesses play a vital role in the community, providing unique products and services that meet the needs of the residents. However, many of these businesses often struggle to gain visibility and attract customers in a world dominated by online giants.

These solutionsfor online marketing and advertising can help increase their visibility, generate more leads, and ultimately drive sales.

One example of a successful big online solution is the “Fall Concerts on the Roof” project in Washington, DC. In 2017, local businesses in the DC area came together to host a series of rooftop concerts to raise awareness and funds for domestic violence survivors. The project was a huge success, with over 3,000 attendees and more than $50,000 raised for the House of Ruth DC, a local organization that provides support and shelter to survivors of domestic violence.

Another example is the “Rebloom on the Roof” initiative, which aims to transform rooftops into beautiful gardens. In 2018, the project collaborated with a local orchid grower to place hundreds of orchids on the roofs of buildings in the city. The annual event attracts visitors from all over the country, who come to see the gorgeous orchids in full bloom and help raise awareness about sustainable living.

For small local businesses, these big online solutions can make a significant impact on their success and growth. By harnessing the power of technology and the internet, they can expand their reach, connect with their target audience, and ultimately thrive in today’s competitive business landscape.
