Since I do so love random facts, here’s a great one: America’s most common birthday is today, October Fifth!

…Which means that my parents were a mere four days away from giving me the most common birthday in the country.

(Hint, hint.)

In celebration of my upcoming special day, 1-800-FLOWERS sent me an early birthday bouquet: A lovely birthday flower cake!


It is quite beautiful and festive, and was decorated with miniature roses:


And of course, Ali totally thought it was for her. And totally thought that she could eat it.


Of course, I cleared up who it belonged to. But we both LOVE the arrangement, and it is still brightening my kitchen today!

In celebration of Fall Birthdays and as a part of their Deliver Smiles Birthday Campaign, 1-800-FLOWERS has some very creative arrangements, including the one that they sent me, and the Cupcake in Bloom:Cupcake

  1. Who knew there was a most common birthday? I mean, sure, that makes sense but it never occurred to me before.

    Those flower cakes are cute! I didn't know they had those either. Maybe I live in a cave.

  2. my birthday is on the 19th! :) Nobody else sends me flowers, so it'd be nice to be able to send myself some :P

  3. I did not know that October 5 was the most common birthday. My child's is on Thursday October 7 and he will be 7. Love the flower cakes and the cupcake cake.

  4. I'm laughing at your disclosure. You are too funny. :) I LOVE the cupcake flowers! So cute! I didn't know they did stuff like that.

  5. A lot of friends and family have October birthdays, but none on October 5. I love that bit of trivia though!


  6. I love would love to send one to myself. I have a special day coming up!

  7. I'm sitting here doing the math to figure out what the conception date would be for an October 5 birthday. Too bad that math is not my skill!

    The flowers are lovely. Happy belated Bday

  8. I would love to win this to send a bouquet to my daughter. She is away at college and having a rough time. I would love to brighten her day.

  9. I had never heard that October 5 was the most common birthday. That day is my mother's birthday and also one of my friend's birthday. I'm a big flower lover.

  15. Love 1-800-Flowers..I use them all the time to send flowers to family members…Great idea, if I won, why not send myself some flowers?!!

  16. I would like to send one of the flower cakes to my daughter for her birthday, but she has said she is not having a birthday this year. But I keep telling her, if she is 40, just think how old that makes me, especially since she is my younger daughter!
