Emerging from a forest green flower box is a clinging vine. It twists itself growing upward through an outline of the country of France and finally resting upon the image of a white house. The bright pink flowering vine acts as a connection between the greater France and individuals and their homes. A perfect metaphor for advertising “La Maison Fleurie”, or Flower Houses, advertised by the Union of Initiative Merchants, Grainier, Horticulturists, and Florists. Written on the poster is “Embellish France, Participate at the Price of Flowers for Your Home”. Sweet, simple, and perfect as your home should be for you.
