Why is the Poinsettia so perfect for Christmas? Although colour TV was introduced to consumers in 1954, it was not until 1964 that TV was finally broadcasting over half its programs in colour. The true marketing came into play in the 1960s, when Paul Ecke Jr. began to give poinsettias away to TV hosts such as Johnny Carson and Bob Hope. He also managed to incorporate his plants in women’s magazines’ Christmas photo shoots. This media savvy caused poinsettias to be accepted as a necessary holiday decoration. Create the perfect poinsetia theme for yourself with this set of bright and beautiful stickers. All sticker designs are printed on sharp white Matt paper to blend into your white pages and designs are printed and cut out individually to help you to visualize your sticker placement before sticking down.
