Violet Heart Project: Julie Danaylov – Spectacular Entertainment & Philanthropic Flowers

Do you know that the flowers that you ordered for your wedding day will get thrown out if you don’t do anything about it?

Today’s wedding expert is Julie Danalyov. She is one of the co-owners of an arial dance cirque group called A2D2 (A square D square). Julie is here to share with us a little bit about her company and how she cofounded the Violet Heart Project.


About the interview:

I love chatting with Julie and  getting to know about the Violet Heart Project!

I’m truly impressed by the smooth operation that they came up with, from picking up your flowers, to repurposing, to sending them to places in need! The life span of flowers are short lived so this process has to be really quick and tight!

Right now, the Violet Heart Project only service within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). Eventually, they may expand to other locations, and hopefully this will be coming soon!

And as promised, here is the free gift that Julie has prepared for you! It’s called “The Top 5 Questions for your Flower Designer”.  It is a handy checklist of important questions to ask when scoping out for your preferred florist.
