drop-in for dads

A simple hand-tied arrangement of exotic-looking permanent and dried florals sends Father’s Day greetings.

Design by Bill Harper, AIFD Fellow, AAF

Proactive planning, by incorporating specials that are not labor intensive and require minimal mechanics, often yields the best profits, especially for busy holidays. Proving that theory, this hand-tied design, which is quick to create and drop into a vase, is sure to be a profit center. It’s easily mass produced and can be offered in a wide variety of vessels or easily switched to another upon request. And its neutral, monochromatic palette can integrate with any home décor. For the upcoming Father’s Day, consider this masculine, nonperishable option, which can be made well in advance of the holiday as needed. Simply gather the exotic-looking materials in hand, bind them and drop them into a vase. The arrangement will be appreciated for its lasting value, and you’ll be appreciated for your cost-effective creativity.
