It seems so simple to cast flowers off as a luxury that is unnecessary and unneeded when you’ve never received them from a cute boy before; but in truth, I would love for someone to place a bouquet upon my porch, ring the doorbell, and consign me to days of wondering who the culprit is. Or perhaps have a secret admirer at work leave a single lily upon my desk to which I would arrive to one morning unbeknownst of who had bestowed such a romantic gift upon me. And, of course, once a few sweet dates have taken place, to find a trail of crimson rose petals leading to a romantic candlelit dinner for two. But, alas, scenes like these seem synonymous with chick flicks, so for now, I am content with receiving this utterly adorable Cupcake in Bloom from 1-800 Flowers.
The Cupcake in Bloom is, hands down, the yummiest bouquet I have ever laid eyes on. Available in an all white carnation arrangement or a blend of green and orange carnations, topped with a candle and a little Celebrate! flag, all languishing in a cupcake cup that you can use over and over again, this Flower Cupcake is the sweetest treat you could possibly receive; and, best of all, it lacks the calories that its frosting-covered counterpart plies us with!
Oh, I know that we are only in the middle of June, and my birthday isn’t until December. And yes, I’m aware that, while completely adorable and sweet smelling, the Cupcake in Bloom may not pack the same punch as the scrummy smell of edible cupcakes baking in the oven. But, all that aside, I’m obsessed. Any boy who would have the good sense to spring for this cupcake arrangement, as opposed to the typical bouquets that you see all over the place is a winner in my book.
Now...should I request the all white or the green and orange? I’m sensing a splash of color in my future. Which one would you choose?
Thanks to 1-800-Flowers for the pictures.
