1-800-FLOWERS.COM and the Deliver Birthday Smiles Campaign

No matter how old you get, your birthday is still a special occasion. Whether you're a kid and have a big bash with all of your friends or you're an adult and you take a moment at work to reflect on how many years have passed, celebrating the day you were born is important for everyone.

When it comes to acknowledging the birthdays of your friends and family though, have you ever thought about doing it with flowers? For me, I tend to think of sending flowers more for Mother's Day, Valentine's Day or for congratulations or condolences... but why not birthdays? What a great day to send a beautiful bouquet!

And 1-800-FLOWERS.COM has so much more than just traditional arrangements, why not take things one step further and send a Birthday Flower Cake?

Or, for a whimsical touch, the Cupcake in Bloom?

1-800-FLOWERS.COM agrees that it's great idea it is to send flowers for birthdays and has started a Deliver Birthday Smiles Campaign just in time for America's Most Common Birthday: October 5th. With over 950,000 Americans celebrating their birthday this Tuesday and more newborns arriving during late summer and early fall than any other time of year, now is the perfect time to focus on birthdays.
