1-800-Flowers Review and Giveaway

I was thrilled that 1-800-FLOWERS offered me the chance to do a review of one of their bouquets and the book, Celebrating Mom, by the CEO Jim McCann.

I chose the Fields of Europe Spring Bouquet. While the bouquet pictured was obviously the largest version and the one that came to me was a downsized version, I thought the local florist did an incredible job of replicating the sample photo. The flowers stayed beautiful for almost a full week, and the lilies even had additional blooms open throughout the week. The most elegant touch, in my opinion, was the large smooth rocks in the bottom of the vase. They just stepped up the entire look and feel of the bouquet.

1-800-Flowers was also gracious enough to send me a copy of the book, Celebrating Mom by their CEO and founder, Jim McCann. This is a great little gift book filled with sentimental quotes about mothers. The next time you want to add something special to the bouquet you send to your mom, this would be the perfect choice.

Now it's your chance to win a $50 gift certificate to order your own beautiful bouquet. (Although, I loved this review so much, I wish I could win this gift certificate, too!)
