Earlier this month I wrote about 1-800-FLOWERS.COM and their Deliver Birthday Smiles Campaign, which was a lot of fun to learn about. With more newborns arriving during late summer and early fall than any other time of year, why not celebrate with a beautiful bouquet of flowers?
In my family we celebrated birthdays in October for both Big Sister E and my mom, two people that are obviously very important to me. But the festivities won't stop there as November brings along the birthdays of my husband and his mom, two more that deserve to be recognized.
Unfortunately for my husband, his mom's birthday is coming up first, so she was the lucky recipient of the bright, cheery Bucket of Birthday Wishes from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM.
Exclusive to 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, this colorful bouquet combines roses, carnations, daisy poms and more all in a cute lime green tin bucket and topped off with a decorative felt birthday wish. Who wouldn't like to celebrate their birth with something sweet-smelling and fun like that?
I was happy to see the variety of flowers and greenery included in the Bucket of Birthday Wishes and the way that they complemented each other in such an eye-catching way. Makes you want to go in for a closer look, doesn't it?
With so many fall birthdays out there, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM has an arrangement, gift basket, plant and more for every style and budget. It makes no difference if your recipient is traditional or modern or young or old, they'll be sure to love the surprise and beauty of your selection.
For an added dose of unique whimsy, why not send the Birthday Flower Cake or the Cupcake in Bloom? What a great centerpiece these would make for a party!
Browsing through the collection of birthday gifts at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, I love how they are separated into easy categories (e.g. For Her, For Co-Worker, Elegant, Romantic, etc.) so that shopping is fast and easy. There is even a whole section on Birth Flowers so that you can see which flower is designated for each month, the meaning behind it and how to take care of it. What a fun addition!
