ProFlowers Mother’s Day Giveaway

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on April 26, 2011

I love having fresh flowers in the house. Tulips are definitely among my favorites. There is just something cheerful about their bright colors and delicate petals. A bouquet of freshly blooming assorted tulips reminds me of a colorful sunrise… so joyful.

ProFlowers sent me a bouquet of 30 Rainbow Tulips. They arrived in bulb form, simply meaning they were completely closed, and they “bloomed” right before our eyes within several hours of placing them in a vase full of fresh water. So vibrant were the colors in this assortment that a smile was inevitable every time I looked at them.

You can see my bouquet in my Easter Basket post… I chose to use the image here in this post directly from the ProFlowers site, simply because it was taken during the day, where mine was taken at night. Mine were just as bright and vibrant as those pictured here, though, promise!

These beautiful tulips lasted an entire week, but would have lasted longer had my precocious three-year old not decided to play “I love you. I love you not.” with them all. I was so sad that my entire bouquet was petal-less that Julia called her daddy and asked him to bring home some new ones for me. It was a sweet gesture, but this new bouquet didn’t quite compare to the bouquet from ProFlowers. (Thank you, though, honey!)

Win it!

Since Mother’s Day is right around the corner, my friends at ProFlowers would like to offer you a special opportunity to win a $50 ProFlowers gift code. Of course, they would love for the winner to choose some Mother’s Day flowers, but the gift code will be good towards anything on their site.

Leave me a comment, before 9pm PT on May 2nd, telling me about your favorite flower and why it brings you such joy. Feel free to share this giveaway with your Facebook friends or Twitter followers, up to once a day. Just be sure you leave me a separate comment each time.

Buy it!

But first, check out their fabulous coupons page, where you can find great deals and offers. You can also receive 20% off your order just by becoming a fan of ProFlowers on Facebook!

My favorite flower is the yellow rose. We had a yellow rose bush on the front porch of my childhood home and the last year of my dad’s life he would sit in front of the window and look out at those roses. It brought him much joy and now they always remind me of him.
Thanks for the giveaway!

I love Gerber Daisies! They bloom in so many bold colors and the simplicity of the flower makes me feel calm. When there’s a Gerber Daisy in my house, it makes me want to tidy up and display them everywhere!!

I love roses because they are so special. So many flowers are easy to grow in my garden, but the roses are always ruined by the japanese beetles. So I always love to receive roses

Lauren Delgado May 2, 2011 at 6:43 pm

I’m going to cheat and say that I love a mix of roses and sunflowers in a bouquet. The combination of the two brings the idea of perfect love to me: roses for the romantic side of love, sunflowers for the equally important friendship side.

Christi May 2, 2011 at 8:08 pm

My favorite flowers are orchids. My mom has a lot of different orchids and my former boss and his wife (I adore them both and miss them!) had an extensive orchid collection, too, and at all the dinner parties, we’d talk orchids.

Nancy May 2, 2011 at 8:26 pm

My favorite flowers are red rose buds because they are beautiful, and are sweet-smelling. They bring me joy because I carried them in my wedding 34 years ago!

carol y l May 2, 2011 at 8:27 pm

Hyacinth because it is so sweet and reminds me of when I was about 5. I got a bunny vase with a hyacinth in it and have loved them ever since.
