Love It or Hate It? Todd Oldham Ice Cream Party

I'm normally of the persuasion that Todd Oldham can do no wrong. But today? Not so much. The colorful designer has now slapped his name on a collection of floral arrangements for FTD, including this Todd Oldham Ice Cream Party ($39). If I'm feeling simpatico, I suppose I might say a genuine ice cream cone could make a cute arrangement for a kid's birthday, filled with some wildflowers. But a ceramic ice cream dish? Filled with carnations (yuck!) in "vanilla" or "strawberry," and a "red cherry" carnation? Come on, Todd!

I would reuse the vase for lots of summer get togethers. They said the dish is food safe. I think they are very cute. I too like that carnations last longer.

I love this and have become a fan of carnations BUT I wouold never pay for FTD flowers they are way overpriced.

I cannot justify ordering and paying for such a simple arrangement of carnations, yes, a cheap flower. Carnations do have their own virtues though. I do think the arrangement is cute for a little girl's party.

The ice cream cone arrangement may not that nice. But I like carnations in bunches. I tried to recreate this bouquet (http://tinyurl.com/5zh4vb) with carnations to make it more affordable, and it turned out beautiful! I'm sorry I don't have a photo of the carnation bouquet. Carnations are also great for pomander balls and not very expensive.

I have a bone to pick with you Casa! I love carnations when bunched together in the same color. In fact, dark purple carnations were my wedding bouquet!

I love carnations! Especially yellow ones and they last much, much longer. I think this makes a cute gift for a girl's birthday or even decoration for a b-day party or picnic. BTW, this looks better than some of the other arrangements I've seen on the FTD site.

I like carnations like this, all bunched together so they look like ruffles. Why do people hate them so much? I think they got a bad rap as filler flowers for cheap bouquets.

I don't have a problem with carnations, and the concept is cute --- like those flower arrangement margaritas and martinis, but for kids --- however, it just doesn't seem well-executed for some reason.

It's a floral arrangement, not something that you buy and put in your house, therefore I think it's adorable.
