We're changing lives, one bouquet at a time.

Hope Blooms is solving a problem, one in which people can feel forgotten or  unimportant with a beautiful but simple message of “You matter.” These two tiny words hold a special meaning in our heart because they are the inspiration behind the inception of Hope Blooms. They exemplify belonging and inclusion, and they illustrate a person's fundamental value as a human being.

Hope Blooms repurposes donated flowers and rearranges them into beautiful bedside bouquets so that those who are in need most in our community feel this sense of inclusion.

Founder Story

Kelly Krenzel founded Hope Blooms in the basement of her home in 2016 to provide comfort and joy to community members who need it most - while also honoring her sweet Grandma Freda. She hopes to inspire others to act out of kindness and offer a gentle reminder that even in dark times, hope blooms.

Our Community

We believe small acts of kindness can change the world - and we’re on a mission to just that. We make people feel loved, hopeful and provide much needed emotional healing in their time of need.

Hope Blooms was created out of a mission to bring the message of belonging and foster kindness right here in our community. We call each one of our volunteers joy makers because we know that a small act of kindness—a selfless act of service—will spread joy to others. We are proud to play a role in building the type of community we all want to be a part of. 

Who We Serve

We provide bouquets to individuals in hospice care, nursing homes, long-term care facilities and assisted living, memory care centers, shelters, women and families in need as well as individuals facing difficult times. Overall, we serve 70-plus organizations, facilities and groups/segments of the population. We serve Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo and surrounding communities, such as Casselton, Dilworth and Barnesville.
