Designer Todd Oldham Creates Inspired Designs for a Fun and Fanciful Halloween

Put the "boo" back in bouquets with a new selection of Halloween floral arrangements created by innovative designer Todd Oldham. Oldham's exclusive relationship with FTD began with his Mother's Day 2006 collection, and its overwhelming success confirmed that people are looking to have more fun with flowers.

"I am thrilled about my new adventure with FTD, says Oldham. "Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I'm excited to design Halloween inspired arrangements for my FTD collection."

Just in time for the holiday, these floral creations, styled to replicate spiders, ghosts, and other autumn themes, arrive in imaginative containers, such as stainless steel planting pots and cupcake trays, making them both novel and re-usable. Oldham's unique vision creates these fun and fresh new arrangements featuring seasonal colors and flowers, such as cranberry red and orange carnations, red mums, and sunflowers.

"For almost 100 years, we have been committed to delivering quality flowers and gifts to consumers around the world," said Bill Van Cleave, FTD Executive Vice President. "I encourage consumers to take a look at this new line of Todd Oldham Halloween designs on because it is like nothing else we've ever offered. I am confident the line will appeal to a broad group of consumers who are looking for contemporary fresh floral products."'s new line of Todd Oldham Halloween products will be unveiled exclusively on this fall, and are sure to make a thoughtful gift for any occasion.
