Shortly after the start of every new year, when those first
sprouts begin peeking through the soil, there’s no doubt that spring is
soon to come. In the meantime, and beyond, give your customers what they
long for—a fresh breath of spring!
Resembling a wondrous garden that has sprung to life of its
own accord, this flower-infused moss basket seems the perfect hiding
place for secret springtime treasures.
