Summer of Smiles with 1-800-Flowers #giveaway 1

There is just something about sending and receiving flowers that is sure to make both parties smile. Have you ever received a bouquet of flowers or a gift delivered to your work or school that just lit up your day with recognition? It lights up a person’s entire day. Summer of Smiles with 1-800-Flowers #giveaway 2

This Summer, 1-800-Flowers is spreading the love with the “Summer of Smiles” and hoping to make many smiles across the country! Whether someone close to you is celebrating a birthday, an anniversary, or even just because-you can pass the smiles by sending someone their own arrangement of flowers.

We had the chance to check out 1-800-Flowers and with my Mom’s birthday being in July, I decided to send flowers to her at work. She seems to always be there and I knew it would stun her to have flowers brought to her work. While the delivery was made right after my Mom had left work for the day, a co-worker had fun with it and called her “Jeannie, you have a package that just got here.” A package? “Yeah, it’s really colorful and well, you better come back!” Sure enough, everyone at her work got a kick out of it and she came back to pick up her “colorful package”.

As soon as she got home from work, she text me and you could definitely tell her flowers had made her day! I saw the pictures go up on Facebook for her to share and I loved how bright and colorful her arrangement was.

1-800-Flowers offers more than just floral arrangements. You can pick the gift appropriate by occasion, and various gift basket options. 1-800-Flowers gives you the breakdown off all the products they have to offer and makes it easy to find that special delivery of “Smiles”. Maybe the person doesn’t really like roses but you know they would love to have an actual house plant-you can pick out a gift that would last longer.


1-800-Flowers is offering For The Love of Baby! readers the chance at a $50 gift card to help make someone’s Summer brighter!
