Giveaway & Review: Birthday Flower Cake from 1-800-Flowers ($40 GC) [CLOSED]

As previously promised, my review of an amazing arrangement from 1-800-Flowers. Their signature floral birthday cake may look good enough to eat, but it's actually crafted from fresh pastel flowers such as pretty mini carnations and cheerful poms. It arrived in a bakery box with a set of six candles and was one of the most beautiful flower arrangements I’ve ever seen. I showed it off to several people before giving it to my mother-in-law for her birthday and everyone was absolutely in awe of this unique, gorgeous arrangement. My mother-in-law thought it was gorgeous and was thrilled to take it home with her. It really brightened and her day and delivered birthday smiles, for certain.
