Those peonies could be yours...

freebee

We're starting something new - delivering a free flower arrangement to a random reader on Fridays! So leave a comment and I'll enter you to win a free arrangement (I promise to use some of those tree peonies) delivered to your door (in Manhattan or Brooklyn) tomorrow, Friday October 29th from 10-5pm.

I thought it would be nice if more people got flowers just BECAUSE

pretty

jezebel said...

Dang it, how'd Rony get here first?! Oh, I'd like to be entered, please.

Julie said...

What a fantastic, fun idea!

Chris said...

I adore your arrangements, but, alas, I live in Florida, so I will appreciate them in photos.

Sarah I said...

I don't live in NY but my best friend from college lives in Brooklyn and today is her birthday! I'd love to enter for her.

Kate said...

whoa, awesome!

m a said...

yes please! it'll make this cold and the feeling that my congested head weighs 30 pounds that much more bearable.

marina said...

i could die. heaven must be missing an angel.

Christine S. said...

Every day I stare at a picture of one of your arrangements that I turned into my screensaver. It is a constant reminder of the peace and beauty I strive to center my life around. It would be nice to look at (and smell) the real thing for a change! I'll even come pick it up as I live in the Bronx : ) Would be a good excuse to go by Baked too ; )

elaine said...

Oh, you had me at peonies! I'd love to be entered..

lady elle said...

Jackie P said...

i like that the word peonies is like ponies with just one more letter. ponies are pretty cool too, but peonies are awesome.
i'll take either...

mercie said...

gahhh! these are gorgeous!! please let me win...

Ms. Bunny said...

Sooooo pretty! Could I enter for a friend of mine who lives in Brooklyn? She could sure use a cheer up.

What Possessed Me said...

That's a lovely idea. Randomizer, pick meeeeeeee.

KWu said...

Wow, way to post the exact thing that would make me come out of lurking to comment! I'd love to be able to enjoy the arrangement at work for the day but since my fiance is allergic to flowers I'd want to give it to one of my colleagues who is also a dear friend and has been having a tough week.

Marianne said...

pick me, pick me!

carrie said...

My dungeon of a NYC office would be soo much cheerier with some of your flowers!

Casey said...

You can't come out to Queens?

Jess Faller said...

SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!!!!!!

I would LOVE flowers. The fetus needs to be exposed to flowers?

Casey said...

Gorgeous! Can you drop off in Queens?

Rachel said...

My door is in Edinburgh but I have a dear friend in Brooklyn. She just moved apartment and resigned so is rather deserving! Make those beauties hers! X

yco said...

Love the autumn leaves and the tree peonies! This is such an amazing idea. I'm all the way in San Francisco, but I'm entering on behalf of a friend in Brooklyn because today is her birthday and I know she'd love a gorgeous surprise tomorrow.

C said...

Thank you - these are beautiful, and peonies too!

PicklePetunia said...

My job is making me stabby, but flowers would make me less so. Pretty.

blue sky butterfly studio said...

This amuses me, how come these people don't normally comment??!!! Any chance of a London flower school please? Will even consider organising!

L. said...

OH DAMN. I've got a sister who lives in the BK, is stressed out and balances working a crazy job with grad school. I'd love to win these, so I could slip you her address and make her goddamn day. Your flowers are beyond beautiful.

Whitney said...

My beautiful friend Sophie who turned me onto your blog started her new job in Manhattan this week. I know those gorgeous peonies would make the "new kid's" day!

Sofia said...

you guys make the loveliest stuff! I wanted to use you for my Brooklyn wedding next summer but sadly you ar out of our price range:( a girl can dream. I will always love your blog though!

Petra said...

These would put my bodega flowers to shame! Best giveaway ever.

Karin said...

These flowers are beautiful! I live in Dallas but on of my best friends since grade school lives in NYC and recently got engaged. I would love to send her these fabulous flowers as a congratulatory gift :-)

Shayna said...

I'm not in Brooklyn right now, but my mom is home nursing a post-surgery broken angle in BK and I would love nothing more than to brighten her day!

Julie said...

My aunt and cousin (my flower girl) live in Brooklyn, their house burnt down last year and they finally moved back into their place a couple weeks ago. I'm sure they'd love flowers in their rebuilt home, and a on-point reminder of little Sophie being my flower girl!

Erin said...

Aw, my sis would love these! Gorgeous.

Pamela said...

Mmm. Yes Please.

KarenB said...

this is the kindest, sweetest thing to do for a total stranger! receiving flowers always makes my heart skip a beat.

flwrjane said...

I live in Virginia so may I enter Marie from 66square feet. She would be the happiest woman in the world. well she may be already but still....

Gloria said...

Dana said...

Just because flowers are the best kind! How beautiful!

Caroline said...

That's the nicest idea. My husband and I have a weekly flower budget, but it only buys us a single stem at a time, so an arrangement would feel like a massive luxury.

Michelle said...

best idea of all time.

Laura said...

How kind of you guys--love it.

Sarah said...

such an awesome idea, and I love the peonies.

Allison H. said...

I'm having a party tomorrow and these would be great decoration!

Doesn't get nicer than just because, and doesnt get more beautiful than Saipua !

This is Genius. And this arrangement is beyond lovely.
But, even though I live in Brooklyn, I won't get greedy. I just love looking at your blog in anticipation of my wedding in another two weeks... I cannot wait to see what gorgeousness you'll create!
