Janet Wright said a carousel reminds her of an amusement park and happiness.
That’s the vibe she was going for with her winning entry, “Carousel of Color,” in Royer’s Flowers & Gifts’ annual name-the-arrangement contest.
Wright, of Carlisle, said she entered just once. Hers was among nearly 1,500 online submissions received between late July and Aug. 6.
Participants saw a photo of the arrangement and a list of its components: a clear dimple vase filled with sunflowers, carnations, daisy poms and charmelia, with accents of golden solidago and purple asters.
Wright said she has been a Royer’s customer for almost 20 years and many occasions.
“We just used Royer’s for my mom’s 70th birthday, and they did an amazing arrangement for her,” Wright said.
For winning the contest, she will receive a Carousel of Color arrangement as a prize.
