to Grandma and Grandpa
LOS ANGELES (August 10, 2009) – Teleflora, the world’s leading flower wire service, offering only hand-arranged, hand-delivered floral arrangements, today announced its partnership with renowned artist Susan Winget, who frequently depicts nature and animals, drawing inspiration from her life on a farm in North Carolina. For Grandparents Day, Sunday, September 13, Teleflora honors familial ties with the release of a new line of arrangements featuring scenes of songbirds by the artist.
"We are excited about our new partnership with Susan Winget, who is known for designs that capture the timeless charm of country life and a love for traditional values," said Shawn Weidmann, President, Teleflora. "Anyone who recognizes the importance of family bonds will want to send one of Teleflora's new bouquets, reminding grandparents just how important and loved they are."
Grandparents will sing praises when they receive one of Teleflora’s songbird floral gifts. On one side, the ceramic planter features two songbirds and, on the other side, a nest of green and blue eggs waiting to hatch. Susan Winget’s Songbird Bouquet features white roses, spray roses, delphiniums, and button-spray mums. It is available through local Teleflora member florists and online at teleflora.com for $49.95. For a different look, the Songbird Planter by Teleflora arrives with a yellow kalanchoe plant and a bird’s nest with eggs for $46.95. Teleflora is the only floral wire service that offers same day delivery by local florists, ensuring these fresh flowers will bring cheer to any grandma or grandpa. Once the flowers are gone, these keepsake containers can hold pens, keys or various plants, allowing the songbirds to express the love grandchildren feel for their grandparents all year long.
"I am thrilled to be partnering with Teleflora on this program," said Susan Winget. "My grandparents always held a special place in my heart and it is a privilege to create art that will honor beloved grandparents throughout the world.
