ProFlowers Review and Giveaway

It’s a well known fact that most women love flowers. Personally, seeing flowers in a vase brightens my day so I was excited to be able to do a review for ProFlowers and then gift a bouquet of 30 purple tulips to my Grandma for Easter.

I received the flowers in a box on Friday morning and all day long they sat in the unopened box because I thought I was going to make it to my Grandma’s house that day to drop them off. Late that evening before I went to bed I took the flowers out of the box and stuck them in a vase full of tap water. To be honest I was a bit worried because they were looking kind of droopy since I hadn’t put them in water right away. The next day I noticed the flowers had perked up and by Sunday afternoon I had a beautiful bouquet of vibrant purple flowers to bring to Easter dinner.

ProFlowers ships their tulips in bud form, which means that they haven’t fully developed.  I was told the flowers would stay fresh for at least a week which gives my Grandma lots of time to enjoy the tulips!

If you are still looking for a Mother’s Day gift you can find a great variety of Mother’s Day flowers on the ProFlowers website. Since I know a lot of you love coupons be sure to check out their coupon page where you can save up to 20% off your order and find out how to get a free vase and weekday delivery among other deals.
