I received a full-size item that was over three times what I’ve paid for the box, and yet there were even more goodies.

How cool that I get flowers delivered not just once but monthly for three months. The first thing I noticed was how many flowers were in the bouquet. It didn't feel like what I get at the grocery store. The arrangement was beautiful and full of high-end flowers. It felt like it was straight from a florist.
