I was recently asked to review a bouquet of flowers through Proflowers, boy I don’t think it is ever a good thing to tell a woman to take her pick of flowers. It took me a good two weeks to actually pick the ones I thought I’d like best. There were so many pretty selections to choose from, items like gift baskets, flowers, plants and of course little gifts I thought would be nice.
Before I discuss what I ended up getting with a ProFlowers gift card from them, I want to explain why it is so hard for me to pick just any flower. See growing up my family’s yard was known in our tiny town as “The Secret Garden.” Why you ask? Simple we had 7 trees and 50+ rose bushes growing in the middle of the desert. This is not something that comes easily but the flowers were always amazing and well cared for so when I look at flowers they really have to speak to me. I am not just going to grab a dozen red roses because they are pretty, chances are I had them growing up. It would have to be some very colorful roses, not just pink or red but an orange or something different, like tie-dye.
So I guess this means I’m one of those exotic flower type of people because we didn’t have them growing up. I want something that is different and will WOW me. I ended up getting the Deluxe Mother’s Day Spectacular for $39.98. I got to pick what type of vase I wanted ProFlowers to ship my flowers in. You can pick one or none, I picked the square glass vase which cost $9.99 and my shipping was free because I picked to have them delivered during the week and not weekend. They have plenty of Proflowers coupons here. I still had a few bucks left so I ordered a small brown teddy bear for our baby coming very soon. The total for all of this was $64.16 and I think for this order I got a lot.
When the flowers arrive they do show up unopened, another word for it is they haven’t bloomed yet. Don’t forget to check inside the box for the little food for the plants, I’ve seen others comment theirs dies immediately and mine didn’t as long as they are fed. I will admit that the irises began blooming right away but it took longer (few extra days) for the Stargazing lilies to bloom. What does that mean? Well in my case I didn’t really get the effect it shows online. By the way, I still have two lilies and it has been over 2 weeks. Aren’t they pretty?
Disclosure: I was provided a gift card to make my purchase to do an honest review. No other money was sent my way. Opinions and pictures are mine.
