A bouquet for Mother's Day

May 5, 2013

ST. PAUL, Minn. — You listen to Classical MPR, so you already make Mom proud; but here's your chance to really impress -- and say thanks to -- the moms in your world.

You'll be hearing floral themed programming -- maybe "Roses from the South," by Johann Strauss, and the Flower Duet by Delibes. You might also catch a carnation from Sibelius, daisies from Rachmaninoff, and floral tributes from MacDowell, Mahler, and Barrios, among others.

But the real show-stopper is always the real thing. Spruce Flower and Home is sponsoring the giveaway to provide a beautiful bouquet, (similar to what's shown) and will do everything they can to incorporate colors or particular flowers (if available) to really hit the high notes with mom.

Get your entry in by May 8th at midnight, and we'll pick a winner the morning of Thursday May 9th to guarantee delivery within the metro area by Saturday, May 11.

The giveaway has concluded.

Spruce Flower and Home in Minneapolis is a new-fashioned flower shop, dedicated to the creation of clean, organic designs for celebrations, weddings, and life. Metro-wide delivery. They are located at 4751 Chicago Ave. Minneapolis, MN 55407, and reachable at 612 767-1101.
