Touch of pink

Pitcher perfect for Mom on Mother's Day or any day, Teleflora has anchored this one of the favorite floral centerpieces for this season with an adorable pink pitcher filled with fresh flowers. Featuring a sweet bouquet of soft pink blooms, it's called "Pour on Pink" and it highlights hot pink spray roses, white alstroemeria and pink carnations, miniature carnations and matsumoto asters all accented with assorted greenery. Once the flowers fade, the pitcher becomes a practical memory and useful for serving summer's cool drinks. The arrangement is hand-arranged and delivered by any Teleflora florist.
