Fabulous Florals is wholesale flower company that is also helping consumers like you and me make beautiful floral creations. I ordered a few dozen flowers to create seven mugs for the graduates and teachers in my life to say congratulations and thank you.

These sweet gifts are the perfect way to salvage the graduation season. To start, place your order with a terrific florist. I love working with Fabulous Florals for quality and attention to detail.
You'll also need the perfect container. I worked with a local Vermont artist, Bobbie Platt. Bobbie's pottery is gorgeous and her mugs ($30-$50) are a gift that will last long after the flowers. For your graduate, the mugs will become vessels for caffeine on late night study sessions. Contact Bobbie (firstname.lastname@example.org) to place your order.
