1-800-Flowers Giveaway



Yesterday there was a knock on the back door, and when I opened it, a man was standing there with a huge vase of roses from 1-800-flowers.com. I had been "Spotted" in their 2nd annual Spot a Mom campaign as a "Green Thumb Mom." As part of this honor, I not only received the lovely roses but also a book called "Celebrating Mom, share, remember, cherish" by Jim McCann, the Founder and CEO of 1-800-flowers.



If that is not enough, Julie Mulligan, the lifestyle expert at 1-800-flowers.com will feature me on her blog on May 4th! My head is reeling from all of the attention! If you want to know a little bit more about me, here's your chance. Stop by her blog on that date.

1-800-flowers.com is offering a Mother's Day giveaway for one lucky winner! You will received a copy of Celebrating Moms AND a $75.00 gift certificate!!!
Here's all you have to do:


1. Leave a comment after visiting the 1-800-flowers.com web site, about what your floral arrangement is, or something you didn't know about 1-800-flowers.


2. For a second chance to win, sign up as an e-mail subscriber with Feedburner, Feed Blitz, or become a Google Follower (see sidebar.) Then leave a second comment telling me you have subscribed or that you are already a subscriber.
If you subscribe in more than one way, leave a separate comment for each.


3. For a third chance to win, blog or Tweet about this contest with a link here, then come back and leave another comment telling me about it.


4. For a fourth chance to win, subscribe to the 1-800-flowers email newsletter towards the bottom of the page, then come back and tell me that you have done that.


5. If you're not a blogger, be sure to leave your contact e-mail address like this to avoid spammers: pianananna(at)gmail(dot)com. If I don't have a way to reach you or you don't respond in three days, your name will be disqualified, and I will choose again, picking my favorite answer.

Good Luck!!


Open to US residents only, 18+.
Winners will be chosen by random.org.
Email addresses will not be shared with any third parties.
This Giveaway ends on Tuesday, May 4th at midnight ET.
