School colors. School spirit. School roses.

School Roses >> Unfortunately, we cannot link directly to the college roses but all you need to do is click “Brands” and you will find FTD College Roses 2nd in the drop down menu.

School colors. School spirit. School roses.

Whether you are an entering college freshman or a university alum, FTD offers an extraordinary selection of rainbow roses that will help you celebrate your school colors and your school spirit. Although they do not yet have vases that represent every university FTD has indicated that it is working hard to forge relationships with more and more colleges across the county.

If you are a current student (or are related to one) these  fabulous  bi-color rose bouquets can both be given and received for such special occasions as birthdays and graduation but they also make festive additions to homecoming events, football games, Greek parties and “deliveries”, and best yet, to celebrate the many accomplishments and milestones reached throughout your life.

So next time your are looking for that little something special to represent your college colors and college spirit – think  college roses!

Party Hearty!
