1-800-FLOWERS.COM Review and Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed





When I was in New York at BlogHer 2010 exploring the two whole floors of different exhibits and exhibitors, there were a ton of remarkable sponsors that I got to learn about and interacted with--One of which was 1-800-FLOWERS.COM.

1-800-FLOWERS.COM is your leading source of everything floral {and more}! Here is a little about the company from their site:

"Making people smile is no small accomplishment. It’s an art and a passion that’s been in our family for decades – it’s what drove Jim McCann to open his first flower shop in 1976. It’s not just in our business plan; it’s actually how we see the world.

When we see a rose or a peony or a Peruvian lily, we don’t just see a gorgeous flower—we see an opportunity to help someone express a feeling: appreciation, adoration, condolences, gratitude, love. It can be hard to express what’s in your heart. But a special bouquet can do the job amazingly well."

I have to say, when I got the Bucket of Birthday Wishes Bouquet delivered to my doorstep two weeks ago, I had a smile plastered on my face from ear to ear! The funny thing is, my 21st birthday is less then a month away, and when I got the gorgeous flowers, my mother thought they were from my aunt who forgot when my birthday was again ^.^

Anywho, I'm excited to be able to tell my readers quite honestly that the bouquet I received was just as beautiful and vibrant as the advertised picture on their website! Seriously, even my mother fawned over it, and it's VERY hard to please her with floral arrangements.

As shown in the pictures, The Bucket of Birthday Wishes Bouquet is a lovely mix of peach roses, carnations, yellow daisies, ferns and more, all presented in an adorable lime green birthday bucket {hence it's name} adorned with festive looking birthday balloons!

Along with the bucket, you receive with your arrangement a multicolor felted 'Happy Birthday' sign nestled right in the arrangement-What better way to say happy birthday, then with a felted sign!? LOL

There is one thing that I wasn't thrilled about and that's watering the flowers-I found it quite hard to get the water INTO the bucket itself.

No worries though-If you have a watering can or something of the sort, you should be just fine to feed your lovelies daily :)

Here are some other pictures I took of my wonderful "birthday" surprise!
