Win An FTD College Rose Collection Bouquet: Review & Giveaway



Last week, I was lucky enough to receive the BEST flower bouquet EVER! Not just because the flowers were from FTD, but because they are a part of their new FTD College Rose Collection! The roses were packed perfectly inside a sturdy box with a beautiful green vase with an S etched on it. They were even better than I had imagined. This would be the perfect Sweetest Day gift, from any person to another, especially a sports fan!



The FTD Officially Licensed Collection:

  • Available in 50 schools from the ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC.
  • FTD plans to add more than 25 schools by the end of 2012.
  • Portion of EVERY purchase directly benefits the featured school.
  • is the ONLY place to purchase The College Rose Collection.

I wanted to see what the roses would look like BEFORE and AFTER (1 week). I really hate when you receive roses that die within a few days. The roses from FTD are sent in buds, giving the roses times to bloom beautifully. You can see for yourself, what the roses looked like when I received them until now. They are honestly, the best quality roses I have ever received. The color is still very vivid & the roses are basically in full bloom. I have received compliments all week!
