The Landscape Show’s motif for 2012 was “Where You Are the Star”, and we took the theme very literally. If the customers are the stars, we reasoned, then why not give them the Hollywood star treatment? We set up our display with giant Oscars, lights, a red carpet with velvet ropes, gold drapes and, of course, a horde of Paparazzi to photograph our arriving guests. We were the paparazzi with cameras slung around our necks, but we were nice paparazzi from the golden age of Hollywood, not the pushy obnoxious version of today. In the back of our booth was a huge sign reading “Grandiflorawood”, similar to the famous one you see up in the Hollywood Hills near the observatory. Of course, we stocked the booth with the most exotic and colorful plants that we had in the nursery, big leafy plants like elephant ears, bananas, gingers and ornamental grasses. Apparently the judges liked our booth, and we were pleasantly surprised when FNGLA President Wes Parrish came by later in the day to present us with the award for Best of Show Themed-Booth.
For the next four weeks, with each order over $500, you will earn one chance to win $500 worth of plants in our Fall 500 Sweepstakes. A $1000 order yields 2 chances, $2000 earns 4 tickets, and $5000 nets you 10 chances. Orders must be received by the last day of the Landscape Show in Orlando – Saturday, September 29, 2012. All entries will be placed in a hopper, and we will pick the winner at the show. You will have until Thanksgiving 2012 to use your prize if you are the lucky ticket holder. You do not need to be present to win.
Make sure to place your fall orders now to take advantage of this opportunity. The more you buy, the greater your chance of winning.
For the second straight year, Grandiflora has held a drawing at the Landscape Show in Orlando FL for a $500 shopping spree at the nursery. To enter, customers must have made at least a $500 purchase from Grandiflora in the past two months. For each $500 spent, a customer received one entry, so the number of chances increased with each order and the size of those orders.
This tears’s winner was Tammy from Niceville Garden Center. Grandiflora owner, Alan Shapiro, let his grand-daughter, 3-year old Delaney Kate Anderson, pick the winning ticket on the last day of the show.
The winning ticket of our first $500 Sweepstakes was drawn at The Landscape Show in Orlando and it belongs to… Greenery Construction of Hardeeville SC!
They have won $500 of free plants. We had over 350 entry coupons in the pot for the drawing, one for each $500 of plants purchased from Grandiflora during August and September.
This promotion was so successful that our staff has decided to do it again for the fall/early winter season. Starting on October 1, 2010, any purchase of $500 of plants will earn a shot at the grand prize of another $500 shopping spree, with the contest ending and the winning ticket drawn on December 24, 2010.
A few simple rules:
The $500 minimum is just for plants purchased, and does not include freight or sales tax. Customer’s account must be current.
Employees of Grandiflora and their families are ineligible. You need not be present to win. We will contact you.
The $500 Shopping Spree certificate must be used fully by February 15, 2011. Call the nursery for more details.
