For centuries, indulgent birthday cakes have served as a celebration staple. But, as the years go by, and sweet-toothed kids become health-conscious adults, birthday girls and boys begin to despise the treat they once adored. So, what if there was a guilt-free alternative that allowed you to have your cake, and not eat it too? Lucky for you 1-800-Flowers.com offers the Birthday Wishes Flower Cake – a 3-D sculpture arrangement that embodies the essence of this traditional treat without the calories! Party-goers, feast your eyes on this innovative and guiltless take on a birthday favorite.
Just over 20 years ago, the flower cake we know and love was just a mere thought! At the time, 1800Flowers.com had just introduced the Holiday Flower Tree®. As one of the first 3-D sculpture arrangements, this Christmas tree flower configuration revolutionized the way people thought about flower arrangements, and met immediate success. From that moment, flower specialists knew they were on to something. They began searching for other opportunities to bring classic symbols to life; this time, focusing on one that can be sold year round.
With careful thought, the company chose the birthday cake – after all, there’s hundreds of birthdays everyday! And, what better way to develop this flavorful floral design than with a competitive ‘bake-off?’ Member florists were invited to submit ideas and designs. Finally, a winner, who’s realistic floral layer cake looked good enough to eat, was chosen! Like its holiday predecessor, this arrangement received lots of praise and became a continuous favorite.

Here at 1-800-Flowers.com, we love to celebrate moms for Mother’s Day. When we were presented with the opportunity to surprise moms with flowers at the Family & Children’s Association in Hempstead, NY, we immediately said yes! The Family & Children’s Association is a non-profit organization who works to protect and strengthen vulnerable children, seniors, families and communities. The group of moms that we surprised today all have children enrolled in organizations nursery co-op program. The co-op is a short-term childcare and case management program for parents seeking to improve the individual and family circumstances through employment, education, training or support services in pursuit of self-sufficiency.
To get everyone ready for the surprise, we brought the moms in for a special Mother’s Day brunch. After eating, we took the kids into a playroom and lined them up with bouquets of Mother’s Day flowers. As the mothers came in to pick up their kids, they were surprised with beautiful bouquets from their children! Seeing their surprised faces and the love between mother and daughter/son was truly priceless! Take a look at some of the photos from the event below!
