The Perfect Poinsettia is Here

Petals Presents its Holiday 2011 Collection; Classic Poinsettia and Amaryllis To Be Best Sellers

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., October 17, 2011 - A tree won't be the only thing you trim this holiday once you discover the remarkably lifelike silk poinsettia, amaryllis and classic floral arrangements offered by Petals. Opting for these top quality permanent botanicals that maintain their beauty for many years will trim your holiday décor budget as well.

"It's fun and festive to add holiday flair to your home while creating family traditions and memories but it doesn't have to be expensive," Tim Hennessy, co-founder of Petals said. "Today's quality silk botanicals look more realistic than ever - thanks to new technology - so purchasing holiday silk designs can really help your budget, especially on those classic items you display year after year, such as poinsettias, a centerpiece for your dining room table and an amaryllis for your foyer."

Pleased to announce its holiday collection for 2011, Petals will once again offer its best selling Premier Poinsettias, available in large ($89) and extra large ($149); its eye-catching Poinsettia & Ranunculus Centerpiece ($129) to adorn your holiday dinner table; and its simple yet classic Poinsettia Accent ($45), the perfect finishing touch to a room and the ideal holiday housewarming gift. For large spaces, the company also offers a stunning Poinsettia Fireside Planter ($299) with silk poinsettia blooms, red gladiolus, evergreens, ivy and berries bursting from a handsome 18-inch-wide copper planter.

Petals will also feature a host of new holiday designs, many of which feature the amaryllis, another Christmas favorite. "We see holiday décor this year returning to the traditional reds and whites, silver and gold, and berries," Hennessy said. The new designs include the Amaryllis, Rose, Holly and Berry Centerpiece ($149) and the elegant stand-alone Amaryllis ($79), both arranged in a silver ceramic cache pot; the Amaryllis, Ranunculus, Holly and Berry Accent in a square silver ceramic planter ($79); the Gerbera Daisy, Holly and Berry Accent in a silver beaded ceramic ball ($45); the Evergreen, Holly and Berry Accent in a glass vase ($39); the Poinsettia Holly and Berry Centerpiece in a bronze urn ($139); and the Red Berry, Evergreen and Pine Cone Wreath ($89).

Silk botanicals save you time as well; no more watering plants and cleaning up fallen leaves and pine needles. "If you're one of the many who, year after year, decorate your home with poinsettias for the holidays, stop and think of what you spend and the time you take to water and keep the plants healthy throughout December," Hennessy said. "Our poinsettias will look beautiful for years to come and require zero maintenance - as do all of our products."

Set-up is easy, too, with Petals. The company expertly packages its products to arrive in perfect shape for instant display right out of the box. (Hint: Save the box to make storage after the holidays effortless, too.)

Silk florals also make wonderful holiday gifts. Petals ships directly to your recipient's doorstep and includes a gift card that may be personalized with a message of your choice. Unlike live flowers and plants, silk botanicals won't freeze or wilt due to extreme temperatures if left on a doorstep by a delivery person.
