1-800 Flowers.com Review and Giveaway



Alfie and I don't have any close relatives living near us; they're all thousands of miles away in the Philippines or in the UK. So sending birthday presents can be a challenge. If we want to send books or toys, we have to wait until some relative comes over, then ask if they can pack the present in their suitcase.

Fortunately, we can always send flowers. Last year we forgot about Alfie's mom's birthday until 3 days before the date, which meant that any card we sent would arrive too late. Greeting cards are a Big Deal with his parents, so Alfie was really bummed until I reminded him we could send flowers. So we used 1-800-Flowers.com to send his mother flowers in the UK. Even though the card didn't make it in time, the flowers did, and she was so happy. We're lucky that 1-800-Flowers delivers to over 45 countries, including the UK and the Philippines! With so many beautiful floral arrangements, you're sure to find a present for someone's birthday. Here are just a few of the gorgeous ways you can Delivery Birthday Smiles with 1-800-Flowers.com:




My favorite one, though, has got to be the Bucket of Birthday Wishes. It's a bright, cheerful arrangement with roses, carnations and other flowers, packed in a cute bucket and topped with a colorful birthday sign:


1-800-Flowers.com was kind enough to send a Bucket of Birthday Wishes to our home, and it certainly made everyone's day! There's nothing like coming home and being greeted with some beautiful flowers. They delivered the order right on time, and I swear the florist who fulfilled the order went the extra mile (0r flower) to pack the bucket extra-full to make it look like it's bursting with nice, large blooms. It's even more colorful than the photo on the website:

By the way, the boy is not included with the floral arrangement, but you can substitute your own child to pair with the flowers, for a birthday greeting that's guaranteed to put a smile on anyone's face!



Enter to win a trip to the Grammys

From now till November 15, send someone a birthday smile using your Mastercard, and you'll automatically be entered to win a trip for 2 to the 53rd GRAMMY® Awards. You could also win one of hundreds of prizes from 1-800-Flowers.com including a Bouquet of the Month® for 12 months, a Birthday Flower Cake® or a $20 1-800-FLOWERS.COM® Gift Card.

This is a difficult choice, and it didn't help that they had to throw in those luscious looking Chocolate Dipped Strawberries! But I finally decided on the Lily Meadow Bouquet.

(I also decided that if I can afford it, I want to get the lovely Country Rose Garden for my best friend who lives too far away!
