New T2 and Supplement

This week's NEW Tips and Tricks video features a unique, fun way to use the Festive Tree with the Gobi Lantern. I just LOVE Hitomi's ability to think outside the box (which is why you should all come see her at Design Days next weekend!) In all seriousness, we would LOVE to have you join us for our Design Days. It will be a great chance for you to get marketing/merchandising ideas from the pros, network with other florists and vendors, meet top floral designers, meet the Accent Decor team, see Els and Hitomi and Kevin in action, eat some good food, chat with us and our community partners, see the brand-new collection FIRST, and (most importantly for you I'm sure) take advantage of some REALLY great specials only available to those who attend Design Days. All the specials are enough to make a plane tickets/hotel stay totally worth it. Seriously.

You can also see the NEW supplement on our website now. Check it out for sales, specials, and maybe even a little inspiration!
