1-800-FLOWERS Event

Yesterday I had the chance to learn more about the 1-800-FLOWERS
family of brands at a blogger event hosted at their Melrose Park,
Illinois location. We bloggers got to make our own basket, see the
design center (photos to come later), meet celebrity event planner
Shawn Rabideau (Bravo's "Bethenny's Getting Married"), speak to brand
leaders, and sample delicious cheese, chocolates and wine. They were
very, very generous with their gifts. From left to right: J cuvee 20
sparkling wine from, 3 boxes of Cheryl's cookies
(including buttercream frosted triple chocolate and Milk Pretzel
Joys), a popcorn ball decorating kit from The Popcorn Factory (think
my daughter Emma will enjoy this), the gift basket
that I made, a box of Fannie May Meltaways, recipe cards from Shawn, a
red vase, and Wintry Wonder snack assortment (includes holiday kettle
corn and white cheddar popcorn and more) & a cute Wintry Wonder
lunchbox (includes cheese popcorn, caramel popcorn, Jelly Belly beans
and more) from The Popcorn Factory. Lots of good eating.
Disclosure: I received gift bags containing the pictured items from 1-800-FLOWERS
