Karen Reif said her close friend received an email from Connells Maple Lee Flowers & Gifts about this year’s name-the-arrangement contest.
“She saw it [and said], ‘You’re the creative one not me, so here you go,’ ” said the Westerville retiree.
Her friend’s hunch paid off as Reif submitted the winning entry, Tranquil Blooms. Reif entered names most days of the online contest, which ran Aug. 1-15.
“It was whatever I was feeling each day when I looked at it,” she said.
The all-around arrangement comprises three roses, stock, hydrangea, mini hydrangea, a lily, cushion poms, button poms, bupleurum, caspia, and curly willow accents swirled in a nine-inch glass bowl.
Reif will receive a Tranquil Blooms arrangement as her prize. The arrangement will debut in September.
