The Jardin Collection captures a "fresh from the garden look" and includes beautiful English garden-style bouquets with distinct color palettes featuring a selection of delightful stems like sunflowers and daisies in glass mason jars.

The Color Confections™ Collection brings together six candy-hued bouquets in eye-popping flower varieties, such as roses and gerbera daisies, in coordinating raspberry, orange, cherry, lemon, lime and purple colored vases.

"The Jardin and the Color Confections collections have universal appeal and are perfect for many occasions, like birthdays, congratulations and 'just because.' While the Jardin Collection features a rustic charm, the Color Confections Collection has a vibrant energy. What they both have in common are unique and reusable vases," said FTD's floral design expert, Michael Skaff.  "The vase is a large part of the gift-giving experience and can be used in wide variety of ways after the initial gift of flowers. There are some vases you keep strictly for special occasions, and then there are the vases that can serve many different uses."

The function and aesthetic of a vase is a priority of Skaff's when selecting the perfect complement to a bouquet. The casualness of the Jardin Collection mason jars becomes elegant with the addition of the cheery flowers. The sleek form of the Color Confections Collection vases is elevated to an eye-catching piece of art when featured with the bouquet. However, Skaff also keeps in mind the reusability of each container. Skaff selected the Jardin and Color Confections vases with the following after-lives in mind:
