Featured Flower Friday ~ FTD Wondrous Nature Bouquet

FTD Wondrous Nature Bouquet

This Friday’s Featured Flower arrangement is the FTD® Wondrous Nature™ Bouquet.  I chose this flower arrangement offered from Brant Florist because it is a perfect flower arrangement for almost any occasion.  It is bright and makes me think of Spring and all the wonderful holidays that come with Spring such as Easter and Mother’s Day. 

The FTD® Wondrous Nature™ Bouquet is bountifully bedecked with a dazzling display of color and beauty. Stargazer lilies stretch their fuchsia petals out amongst an arrangement of blue iris, white traditional daisies, orange mini carnations, purple statice and yellow solidago in a round whitewash handled basket, creating a delightful bouquet your special recipient will adore.  The Wondrous Nature Bouquet makes a perfect Easter or Mother’s Day gift to a loved one, one they will adore for sure!
