Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. It’s in one week to be exact. (Ahem, guys….you have 7 days to purchase your gifts!) While there are many different ways to express your love, giving flowers is one of the top ten items purchased for this holiday.
At first I thought ProFlowers.com only offered flowers. After spending five minutes on their website, however, I found out I was wrong. In addition to flowers, they offer delicious chocolates, cookies, fruits and more!
I chose to review an arrangement of 20 Sweetheart Tulips in the Damask vase. The tulips arrived the next day, neatly packaged in a box. There were no broken stems, and no flower was discolored. The box contained flower food and instructions, which I followed to a “T”. The tulips smelled wonderful!
On day 2, the tulips sprung to life, and the colors were so vibrant.
On day 3, the tulips opened up. I couldn’t stop looking at them, as the arrangement caught my eye with it’s beauty! This same day I went shopping. I was gone for about two or three hours, and upon my return, I entered my kitchen, and was stopped in my tracks. The tulips that were so beautiful this morning had fallen over. I was in shock (and disappointment)!
I quickly learned that ProFlowers has a 7 day freshness guarantee, and that the tulips should have looked beautiful for at least a week. When a product tests this guarantee, ProFlowers offers two options: a refund, with no questions asked or a product replacement. I was asked if I would like to review a second product.
This time, I chose to review One Dozen Long Stemmed Assorted Roses.
The roses arrived in the same manner as the tulips, neatly packaged in a box, with no broken stems or discoloration. This box included care instructions as well, and more flower food.
Today is the third day that I have been enjoying these roses on my table. The roses smell great, and have just as much beauty as the tulips (before they fell over)! Who doesn’t love fresh flowers on their table? (And yes, I have been hinting to my husband that flowers make a great centerpiece. My daughter is now saying it, too! Ha….maybe it will become a constant thing!)
