A pretty flower for Earth Day!

Truly Spectacular MomI just love earth day! I’m not an eco-freak or anything but there is just something nice about celebrating and taking care of the planet we live on. YAY EARTH!

This year I decided to do something a little different and tell you about some really pretty flowers from Proflowers. I bought them for my mom for her Earth Day birthday!

Happy Birthday Mom!

 

My mom and I are quite close (you might have seen me mention her in tons of other places on the site). I agonize over her gifts wanting them to be JUST perfect. I’m still making up for not making her enough macaroni jewelry as a child. Unfortunately she lives all the way in Virginia and I’m in Nevada which makes gift giving a little trickier than I’d like.

My moms birthday was this past week and I love saying the phrase Earth Day Birthday so when I was shopping for a gift that’s what was stuck in my head! Fortunately for me she loves nature!

I ended up getting her some flowers from www.ProFlowers.com! She just moved into this gorgeous new house and I was thinking that she would love to bring some color and nature from the outside, inside.

Truly Spectacular Mom 2I decided to go with the Deluxe Truly Spectacular Mom bouquet. She is after all a truly spectacular mom!

I also included a few extras with the order. I got a vase, a Teddy Bear, and a Greatest Mom Magnet.

The ordering process was super easy. Not counting the hour that I spent browsing the site drooling over gorgeous flowers,  it only took me about 2 minutes to place the order.

After my flowers, extras, taxes, and delivery my total came out to 84.18. I found a coupon on the Proflowers site for free delivery on weekdays that saved me $18.98 and that brought my total down to $65.20.

They’ve all the time got some sort of discount on their site so when you order I suggest checking for a coupon. You can find some here:

The flowers arrived perfectly on time and they even sent a confirmation email when they were. Mom was stunned! The flowers were so beautiful! Although they came as buds (like the site mentioned) as soon as she added some water they opened right up. GORGEOUS!

I’ve ordered a bunch of stuff from ProFlowers and their sister brands and never had any real issues. I highly recommend them! Next time you know someone with an Earth Day Birthday…. make it happen!

  1. I have never ordered from this company before...nice to know you were pleased with them...nothing worse spending all the money and being so disappointed with what they actually sent!

  7. I liked this article because it reminds us all how precious our planet is and to take care of it by doing something special, to celebrate it.

  8. Aww, I love that you care about our planet. I also care about our Mother Earth, while not being extreme (marching, forming rallies or hugging trees) I still try to reduce and reuse when possible. I love that you are close to your Mother. My mom has been gone for close to a year and I am at a loss without her. You are a great daughter and your Mom must be a wonderful mother to have made you so special. Have a wonderful Mothers Day!

  9. I love ProFlowers, I've used them several times and have never been disappointed! I must admit I never really gave Earth Day too much thought until last year when I had to help my daughter with a school project, I think I learned more than she did! I now try to view everyday as Earth Day!

  15. I have puchased flowers from pro flowers and they are always a win, however, if we are to keep with the "green" concept or initiative, it is best to plant one's own flowers and cut them to give to mother, self, etc. rather than purchasing flowers.
