When was the last time you treated yourself to flowers? As part of the 1-800-FLOWERS.COM Summer of Smiles, we received this sweet bouquet. The white flowers with a splash of yellow were the perfect mid-week pick-me-up for this busy mom. I am considering them my personal thank you gift for surviving the latest round of potty training.
In the winter, I'm in the habit of adding a bunch of flowers to our home on a regular basis--it always lifts my mood. Now that it's summer, I needed a reminder to continue bringing the flowers inside. Maybe you know someone in the need of a smile--this gift could be just the thing. Perhaps you're late sending a new mom gift to a friend or you completely wiffed on Mother's Day...why not make up for it now and send a smile with aIt's Your Sunny Day Bouquet($49.99)?
Perhaps you order online, or even better if you are lucky enough to have a garden in bloom, create a bouquet and deliver it in person to someone you love. Flowers have a way of communicating gratitude and love like no other gift. The fleeting nature reminds us to slow down and simply enjoy their beauty. Thanks to 1-800-FLOWERS.COM for sponsoring this post and brightening my kitchen.
