The Inside Look (Oct. 14)

The Q4 holidays are hitting us like a steamroller! Some days are “peace on earth,”while other days it seems like everyone’s tinsel’s in a tangle!

InsideLook.October2019 Fortunately, we have the Society of American Florists keeping us on track, with their national Petal It Forward campaign and their brand new set of SAF initiatives for 2019. You will not want to miss this information inside!

One of the biggest in-store initiatives for Q4 is to convert store décor from the dog days of summer, to fall bright jewel tones. And with this, comes the care and handling of seasonal products such as Christmas cactus, poinsettias and more.

Look inside to see the full realm of store preparedness and let us know if you’d like a PDF to share with your store teams.
