TELEFLORA’S THE WIZARD OF OZ BOUQUET CELEBRATES THE 70TH ANNIVERSARY ULTIMATE COLLECTOR’S EDITION, AVAILABLE ON DVD AND BLU-RAY
Teleflora’s Newest Bouquet Captures the Magic for Wizard of Oz Fans
LOS ANGELES (August 27, 2009) – In conjunction with the September 29 release of The Wizard of Oz on Blu-Ray™ and DVD, Teleflora, the world’s leading flower wire service offering the best choice in floral arrangements and convenient local delivery, has created an enchanting gift, The Wizard of Oz Bouquet. Teleflora’s new arrangement celebrates the release of the 70th Anniversary Ultimate Collector’s Edition of the film, which Warner Home Video has beautifully brought into the digital age, re-mastered to perfection.
Teleflora’s The Wizard of Oz Bouquet is a beautifully hand-painted sculpture of the beloved characters, the Lion, Scarecrow, Tin Man, Dorothy and of course little Toto, gracefully skipping down the yellow brick road. As the characters link arms and travel on their journey, fans are reminded of the film’s encouraging message that anything is possible. Collectors will be delighted to know no detail is forgotten when they see Dorothy’s coveted ruby slippers, dazzling with style. To reinforce the sweetness of life’s possibilities, the floral arrangement features the sweet smells of button-spray chrysanthemums, roses and alstroemeria, all in a yellow shade to highlight the bright future ahead.
Teleflora’s charming new floral gift is available through a local Teleflora florist or online at teleflora.com for $64.95. With “The Wizard of Oz” fans across all generations, this bouquet makes the perfect present for an Oz follower of any age. Even after the flowers are gone, this is the ideal gift, as the sculpture will serve as a collector’s item for years to come.
