1-800-Flowers Birthday Smiles Giveaway

When 1-800-FLOWERS.com asked me to do a review and giveaway to help them celebrate Birthdays in October, I couldn't be more excited. Not only did the nation celebrate America's Most Common Birthday on October 5th, but we celebrated my oldest daughter's 18th birthday!   ♪Happy Birthday Baby♪ (Conway Twitty)

#1 loves cupcakes, (but who doesn't?) and Carnations are her favorite flower, so I knew the Cupcake in Bloom bouquet would be just the thing to bring a smile to her face. It's made with white carnations and it's shaped just like a giant cupcake.

The flowers were delivered just after she came home from school, on her birthday. The flower arrangement arrived in the cutest little box like something fresh from the bakery. With a candle on top, this flower cupcake looked good enough to eat! (ok, but don't eat it, really, it's flowers, not cake.)
