Oasis Idea Weekly

November  2018
He Created Floral Doorway Art. They Became a Traffic-Stopping Sensation.
Can floral doorway displays showcase your flower artistry and promote your business for a decade?
They can when your designs are so sensationally gorgeous they literally stop traffic.

Internationally-acclaimed florist Neill Strain and his team build larger-than-life seasonal exterior installations that create visual pathways into the store.

The just-installed 2018 Holiday Display at Neill Strain Floral Couture in London, England .
In 2008, these signature floral doorways successfully introduced Neill's boutique to the affluent Central London District of Belgravia. 

And then his on-trend outdoor designs became a social media sensation as did the boutique.

In this week's IDEA Weekly blog, Neill shares his insights on how you can use floral doorway displays that showcase your floral art and put your floral business on the map.
