July Contest – Win Fresh Flowers… of your choice!

Posted on: July 12, 2010


This month, I’m happy to announce our give away is for a fresh flower arrangement (valued $50). The best part – you get to pick it 🙂

I think this is a great idea as, I LOVE  fresh flowers. The colours. The smells. The beauty. Everything about flowers make me smile and I’m lucky enough to work with them every day! For most people though, we forget how special flowers are and the feeling they can evoke. From celebrating an anniversary or a birthday, to showing a friend you’re there for them, to honouring a loved one – flowers are a thoughtful gift for any occasion. But where is the thought you ask? I mean you’re JUST getting flowers!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Well, in my opinion the ‘thought’ is when you pick flowers for someone with care and with them truly in mind. I’ll give you an example. I recently had a customer giving flowers as a gift for mother’s day. Instead of assuming what type of flowers to give, I asked the customer questions such as, what’s your mother’s favourite… flower? …colour? or is she more classic or a colourful type? etc. By asking these questions, I was then able to put together the perfect arrangement for the customer and his mother LOVED the flowers. Although the customer didn’t know what to get, by sharing with me some information about his mom, I was able to help him show how thoughtful he was.

For this contest, to win I would like to see YOUR thoughtfulness!

Love the The FTD® Bright Spark™ Rose Bouquet N5-4310 for Anniversary

My Grandma needs flowers. Its her 102 birthday at the end of the month, and just last week we needed to put her in a nursing home. Big change for someone that was fully capable of looking after themselves all these years. Her room is small and depressing to me, and July has been very hard on her and the family. The love in bloom c14-3078 is so cheery looking. It would have to put a smile on her face.!

The FTD® Rose Fest™ Bouquet.

My favourite flower is of course roses, but it really is so much better to give flowers to someone you care about than receive. Giving a floral boquet really makes me feel wonderful!
