butterfly garden

Watch your spring sales take flight with this charming special offering.

Design by Tina Stoecker, AIFD, PFCI

Much like the natural travels of monarch butterflies, consumers will migrate straight to your shop this spring once they hear the flutter about your latest shop special. Although this composition has the feeling of a traditional colonial bouquet, it is updated with a few elements that contribute texture, movement and depth.
A pair of butterflies alights upon the arrangement as if drawn to the sweetly scented Freesias and roses. Wood picks secured to their wires keep the insects
from rotating in the floral foam.
Moss spheres, which are picked into the arrangement, repeat the composition’s overall circular form while narrow blades of dried Malian grass create diagonal
contrast, contributing dimension and drawing attention to the other elements within the design.
