THE CLINTONS KEEP SO MANY 'FOB'S' BY SENDING FLOWERS; CONGRATULATING

PRESIDENT-ELECT CLINTON AND VICE PRESIDENT-ELECT GORE WITH FLOWERS
 SOUTHFIELD, Mich. Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- FTD, the nationwide floral delivery service, has been flooded with requests to send congratulatory arrangements to the Clintons and Gores, according to FTD Florist Betty Anderson of Francis Flowers of Little Rock, Ark. The president-elect and Mrs. Clinton receive and seem to like red roses and mixed bouquets, but many people are sending red, white and blue arrangements in celebration of the election. Vice President-elect and Mrs. Gore say that they like all flowers and are especially fond of plants that can be repotted.
 According to Anderson, "The Clintons are big flower senders as well as receivers. Keeping up long-distance friendships with so many FOB's (Friends of Bill) involves sending a lot of flowers." For most of their friends, the Clintons' requests are for roses, mixed bouquets and exotic flowers like Birds of Paradise.
 Flowers for the president-elect and Mrs. Clinton can be sent via any FTD Florist to the Governor's Mansion, Little Rock, Ark. The vice president-elect and Mrs. Gore can be reached through his Senate office in Washington. FTD Florists have been helpful in the past by donating the overabundance of flowers to shelters and day care centers after they have been received.
 FTD, headquartered in Detroit, was founded in 1910 by 15 retail florists who agreed to exchange orders for out-of-town floral deliveries, and today is owned and directed by more than 24,000 independent retail Member Florists in the United States and Canada.
