ProFlowers Review and $50 Giveawy

Winner - Comment #142 coriwestphal said...I'd love a Juniper Bonsai!



Besides jewelry, one of my favorite things to get for Valentines Day is flowers.  And Stargazer Lilies have always been my favorite!


I love the rich reds and pinks with the shock of yellow and green in the middle.  But because they are my favorite, and the go to flower in my household, this Valentines Day I decided I wanted to mix things up and try something new.

After a lot of contemplation, I decided I really wanted to try the Purple Dendrobium Orchids from ProFlowers.com.  

The flowers were delivered in a box, and all I had to do was cut off the ends and add water.



Absolutely beautiful!  The buds were full and open on the bottom but closed on top to make them last longer.  And I loved the purplish pink color.

After a week the flowers looked just as good.  The bottom flowers were getting a little saggy, but the upper buds were blooming and they still looked fantastic.


I loved going into my dining room every day, and seeing the flowers on the table.  There is just something about fresh flowers that gives a room a whole new look and feel!  

I can't tell you how long they lasted, because on day 9 we had a little kitchen accident that brought an end to my flowers.  I'll just say that dogs, even toy ones, don't belong on the table.



While Stargazers Lilies will always be my sentimental favorite, these orchids come in at a close second!



 To Buy - Whether you decide to go with a classic or try something new, ProFlowers.com has great Valentines Day Ideas for any budget.   My favorite is the complete Valentines Day 4 in 1 Package.



It comes with the flowers, vase, bear, and chocolate, for only $60.
