HGTV's Extreme Makeover Home Edition
The Barobi Family
When a national television show films in what is practically your backyard, and need hundreds of local volunteers, including a florist - you sign up! We were so happy to assist with this amazing project in August of 2019 in the mountain foothills city of Ogden.
The Barobi family, escaped the terrors of guerrilla warfare in their home country the Congo in Africa, and after 3 years of living in a refugee camp, they came to live in Utah. Having overcome many extreme hardships, they were nominated for this incredible opportunity - HGTV's Extreme Makeover Home Edition!
The city of Ogden gifted the family the plot of land. Under the direction of Wadman Corporation, a local construction company, many volunteers built a new, beautiful 6 bedroom home in just 5 DAYS! All materials, time, decor and furnishings were donated; including the flowers shown in the photos below!

HGTV's Extreme Makeover Home Edition
Washington Terrace, Utah
The Mayo Family
Kelly Mayo is a beloved member of the Washington Terrace and Ogden, Utah community. She has selflessly served others and has always welcomed many into home. After tornado damage and continued water leakage in her home, the living conditions were not safe for herself, her daughter and young granddaughter. Kelly was nominated by an Ogden resident who wanted to recognize her for all the good she does for her community.
We were fortunate to be a part of not one, but two HGTV's Extreme Makeover Home Edition shows, filmed back to back the same week in August of 2019! The original, damaged Mayo home was torn down, and rebuilt in a matter of just 5 days thanks to hundreds of volunteers, and the direction of Wadman Corporation. We were so happy to help make this happen for such a deserving family.
