1-800-Flowers giveaway! Who needs husbands?


Mother Nature Garden Tote

Usually, the only thing I have to give away on this blog is advice, blah-blah and gratuitous photos of my kids. (Once, I did offer up my mother-in-law, but oddly enough I didn't get any takers). Recently, though, a nice lady from 1-800-Flowers e-mailed me and offered to do a bouquet giveaway. Because we're all that fabulous.


Mother's Embrace

OK, so the company does have some new stuff it would like you to know about. It just launched The Spot A Mom movement, to celebrate the many varieties of moms out there. They also have a fun guide for figuring out which kind of flowers suit different moms' personalities.


Mother's Devotion

To enter to win, just leave a comment and be sure to mention which one of these four arrangements you covet (Aussies and Brits, jump in, they can send flowers pretty much anywhere). I'll randomly pick a winner, courtesy of random.org, on Sunday at midnight and announce the winner on Monday. You'll get the bouquet on or before Mother's Day. And, if you'd like, I can ask if they'll sign the card "xoxoxo, Lorenzo" or something if you'd like to make the hubs a little jealous.

  1. Nice giveaway! I never get cut flowers, my husband thinks it is a waste since they are just going to die. I love Mother's Embrace. That arrangement reminds me a lot of the flowers in my wedding bouquet.

  4. I NEED the Mother Nature Tote -- I think Amelia's extension, venting and nebulizer tubing would look really cool in it! Thanks for the fun offering!!!!
    Have a terrific weekend -- 80's baby, 80's (not the decade, the temperatures -- although the decade did have some special music and clothes!)

  7. I love the Mother Nature tote but personally I would pick a common name to write on the card like hmmmm Tom or something... That would really make my huspand wonder. By the way I love your blog I check on it everyday. I started a blog but I only got one page on it...haha to busy and I would rather just read everyone else's. I have so fallen in love with your children just so you know.

    Hey Ellen, you are now infamous. 1-800-flowers contacted you. Consider yourself/your blog officially a BIG DEAL. Congratulations.
    I would go for the Mothers Embrace - I love lilies.
    You are so nice to do this. Tell the flower folk you deserve a bouquet of your choice for arranging all this. ;-)

  26. Hi - I just found your blog via 'N0thing but everythings' blog and wanted to say thanks for the "I heart someone with cerebral palsy" button - I have grabbed one for my blog.

  27. The 'mother nature garden tote' looks like a winner to me.

    If I were to get anything for mothers day I'd just like it signed from my 2 beautiful boys. Their dad doesn't quite get the idea that he could take them out to get me a little something for mother's day - he says I'll just need to wait until they are old enough to get me any mother's day gift ;-).

  28. WOW what a nice giveaway.
    Ane who wouldn't like to get flowers from "Lorenzo"?
    My favorite is the sentimental mother but all of the flowers are beautiful.
