1-800 FLOWERS review and giveaway ***Giveaway Closed

I love carnations and I am not afraid to say it…anymore.
DSC_0218-1
Seriously, for years I hated carnations. They seemed like such a cheap second (I think it was the brightly frosted tips). However, recently I’ve seen a couple of posts like this one, this one, and this one that have given me cause to rethink the flower…
So, when 1-800 FLOWERS called and offered to let me review one of their birthday arrangements as a part of their October Birthday Smiles campaign (did you know that October 5, is the nation’s most popular birthday?) I had to pick this one: DSC_0217-1 It wasn’t the largest or most expensive, but I am so glad I selected it. I was so impressed!!! First off, the packaging and arrangement were adorable. The delivery came from a local florist (love that I can use a large website to support a local company). And, it also lasted forever.
This is another photo of the arrangement about a week and a half later. I wanted you to see, close up, how great it looks, even after a week and a half!

    I love the Orange Roses & White Calla Lily Bouquet. When I clicked the Twitter link and it took me to the new version of Twitter for 1800FLOWERS, there was not an obvious place to click to follow them. I think it is an issue with the layout for new twitter. I found them on Tweet Deck to follow.

  2. Victoria ObSEUSSed says:

    I follow you on GFC & Twitter, like you on FB, and Tweeted about this. I know I should get 4 entries for all of these but I'll just take 1 and not be greedy. This is a fun give-away. Thanks for the opportunity.

    I prefer flower arrangements that are NOT occasion specific EXCEPT in terms of COLOR (Spring or Autumn or Red for Romantic, Pink etc.) – that said I make an exception for the fun and cheery "Just Ducky Gift Set." Seasonally, one of my favorite straight flower arrangements is the sooo lovely "Twilight Lily Bouquet."

    1-800-FLOWERS has SO many Floral arrangements (and other gifts!) that I just love – but next to chocolate, Flowers are my weakness!

      I needed to cospome you one very small remark to be able to say thanks a lot again on the wonderful tricks you’ve featured in this case. It has been really strangely open-handed of people like you to make unhampered just what numerous people would’ve supplied as an electronic book to get some dough for themselves, most importantly considering the fact that you might well have done it if you wanted. These inspiring ideas also acted to become a great way to understand that some people have similar fervor similar to my very own to learn a whole lot more with regard to this issue. I am sure there are lots of more enjoyable periods in the future for folks who discover your blog.
