Flower Power Daily’s Entry of Dolly Parton Social Challenge

In floral news, we wanted to take part in the “Social Challenge” collage where people create a four-photo mosaic of social media sites LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram and Tinder.
Turns out that Dolly Parton, the pint-sized superstar whose songs include “Wildflowers” and “Yellow Roses,” was the first to take part in it and the idea spread like – well – wildflowers.
Here is what Dolly Parton did for hers and then we will share what we came up with at FlowerPowerDaily.

As you know, FlowerPowerDaily likes to dig deep and have FUN.  So because “LinkedIn” represents our professional lives, we chose these “lily of the valleys” which represent purity and luck.

Orange tulips symbolize mutual connections and understanding between people which is “Facebook” at its best.

“Instagram” is designed to dazzle and this rare flower is the Lady Slipper orchid.

And last but not least the Psychotria elate has been nicknamed “Hot Lips” and you know why we selected it for “Tinder!”

This was an opportunity to also go through our treasure trove of photographs and literally move around images like chess pieces to find the perfect choices.

We all had so much fun doing it and let us also see what you come up with.

Already so many people are flooding their Instagram feeds with this viral meme idea. Other stars who have joined the meme challenge are Mark Ruffalo, Kerry Washington, Jennifer Garner, Naomi Campbell, Miley Cyrus and Will Smith. Even Ellen got in on the fun.

What’s so interesting about this viral meme is though people try to manufacture them all the time, few attempts are successful and catch on. Memorable ones include the Ice Bucket challenge to raise awareness for ALS  while the Mannequin Challenge was less impactful.

But it’s all about planting seeds and see where they grow. And you never know what will bloom.
