Avas Flowers {Birds of Paradise Bouquet Review & Giveaway}

Avas Flowers logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Elizabeth!}

What is it about flowers that gives them the ability to instantly brighten someone's day? Is it the beautiful color? The glorious, sweet scent? The soft, delicate feel of each petal?

Even though there are so many varieties of flowers out there, there is just something so eye-catching about them that has caused the popularity of flower delivery to remain constant from one year to the next. Is there anyone out there that isn't thrilled to find a bouquet of flowers at their door? If so, I haven't met them yet.

But when you walk into a florist, how long have the flowers been sitting in that case (not to mention the travel time from the farm to get there)? I don't know about you, but if I send someone flowers, I want to be sure that they are going to be high quality and fresh and will last for as long as possible. And no one agrees with that more than Avas Flowers.

Avas FlowersFor over three decades, Avas Flowers has been proud of their unbeatable commitment to customer satisfaction and the way they understand the importance of every floral order.

As well as working with local florists, this brick and mortar company offers nationwide delivery through their "direct from the farm" program. What this means is that only the freshest, highest quality flowers will arrive at your recipient's door, but instead of being sent through the florist, they will arrive via UPS or FedEx in an award-winning gift box designed especially for floral deliveries.

This allows Avas Flowers to deliver high quality, premium flowers at discount prices - which is something we all can appreciate, right?

When one of their signature boxes arrived, I was impressed immediately with the overall presentation and just how well the flowers were laid out.

flower deliveryAfter removing the packaging (under the smooth gold fabric I found that the vase of flowers was very securely fastened, eliminating the possibility of damage to the flowers or the vase itself), I sat back in awe of what had arrived.

With so many amazing arrangements on their site, I had been happy to have Avas Flowers choose one to surprise me... but I don't think I was prepared for how exotic and beautiful the Birds of Paradise Bouquet would be.

birds of paradiseDue to the Birds of Paradise being so fresh, the colors were vibrant and bright and the packaging had kept each tropical flower in pristine condition. The combination of the flowers themselves, the lush greens, and the decorative accents resulted in an arrangement unlike one that we've had before.

birds of paradise flowersDuring the time that the Birds of Paradise Bouquet has been in our home, every person who has visited has commented on their beauty - including my husband when he first saw them. From someone who is never really all that impressed with flowers, hearing him say that these were, "very cool" was an awfully big endorsement!

With all of the possible occasions that would be made better breast cancer awareness flowerswith flowers (birthdays, anniversaries, sympathy, celebrating the colors of fall, Pink Me Up for Breast Cancer Awareness, and much more) Avas Flowers has an arrangement that your recipient is sure to love.

Plus, with the affordable prices found at Avas Flowers, you'll know that you've sent something beautiful and saved money in the process. I compared various arrangements on their site to other flower delivery websites and found them to be either the same or less. The Birds of Paradise Bouquet retails on Avas birthday flowersFlowers for $39.99 and couldn't be compared - the competitors don't even offer these exotic beauties!

Their dependable commitment to customer service and your complete satisfaction ensures that you will be happy with your Avas Flowers selection and, with flowers available for delivery the very next day, you know that your recipient will receive a bouquet that will be extremely fresh and long-lasting.

And, thanks to their generosity, everyone is a winner at Avas Flowers! Simply mention this blog post when you call in your order and you will receive a FREE upgrade to the next size arrangement (based on daily availability)! How cool is that? Plus, one person will get to enjoy a little piece of paradise in their home as well, because...

One lucky person will win a Birds of Paradise Bouquet from Avas Flowers!

I was browsing through their site to choose my favorite. I kept oohing and awing at so many of the arrangements. When I would think I found my choice, I'd find another. Then one took my breath away! It is the "Gold Discovery Orchid". It is breath taking!

The tropical birds of paradise is my very favorite plant! I love most plants, so I'd be happy with any of them. But I used to get birds of paradise from my husband for all occasions (valentines, birthday, anniversary, pick-me-up). We can't get them anymore. Haven't had any in 4 years. I would genuinely love to get even 1 bird of paradise. Absolutely beautiful!! I love all email from Thanks, Mail Carrier. You are and you have the best!
