Downers Grove, IL (April 25, 2016) – Premier floral and gifting company FTD® announces a new collection of faith-inspired floral arrangements and gifts. In collaboration with DaySpring, the leading supplier of Christian greeting cards and gifts, FTD designed the inspirational collection as a part of their partnership with Hallmark. Beginning today, FTD.com/Dayspring will offer artist-designed floral bouquets, plants and gifts with relevant life-affirming messages of joy, hope and encouragement for Mother’s Day and beyond.
The partnership of the U.S.’s largest floral retailer with the world’s largest Christian greeting card company is a natural fit. It allows FTD to reach faith-driven consumers looking for exceptional gifting choices, with guaranteed, high-quality, florist-designed arrangements.
The collection includes 11 curated floral arrangements delivered in a gift box fresh from the farm, six beautiful fresh potted plants and a limited gift selection. Each arrives complemented with DaySpring sentiment tags that highlight messages of thanks, love, hope and joy. A variety of faith-inspired jewelry, calendars, teddy bears, crosses and other products offer the ability to enhance the delivery with add-on presents.
The DaySpring by FTD Collection will brighten any recipient’s day and also gives the gift giver the peace of mind of knowing it is coming from two of the country’s most reliable brands.
“The FTD partnership with DaySpring allows us to provide artist-designed flowers, fresh plants and inspiring gifts for those who want to emotionally connect with their loved ones through faith,” said FTD General Manager and Senior Vice President Lincoln Rodman. “The carefully crafted Christian messages of joy, hope and encouragement that accompany the flowers will help people to confidently express their important sentiments and feel like an exceptional gift giver.”
“Our collaboration brings together the hope and joy of God’s word with the beauty and artistry of His creation to create unique gift solutions for our consumers. In times of joy or in times of difficulty, this collection will help her express her faith in a beautiful, thoughtful way,” DaySpring Marketing Vice President Stephen Bos.
DaySpring joins a long line of specially curated partnerships within the FTD brand, including one with their parent brand, Hallmark.
