It’s a very unique gift and each petal of each rose has been dyed in different colours to give the rainbow effect. These vibrant flowers are guaranteed to put a smile on your loved one’s face and will certainly brighten up any room.

To win a striking Rainbow Roses Vase all you have to do is leave a comment telling us who you’d give it to and why. Remember, the personality of the person you suggest should reflect the vibrancy of this bouquet!

Be creative with your answers and make us laugh!

The competition ends on Thursday 29th March, so get your comments in before 5pm on that day. We’ll then choose a winner and email them to arrange delivery of their colourful prize.

To be honest, I would give them to myself. I have coped with depression (i don’t like to say suffer) for many years and it’s sometimes hard to find days that seem bright, most of them are dull and dark. These would just be beautiful and add a lot of colour to my sometimes very dark days <3

Tara 23 Mar 2012 at 5:28 pm

My blogger partner-in-crime Jade! She´s the wittiest girl on the planet & is larger than life. She has great style & is completely selfless. I´d love to surprise her with these not only because rainbow is her favourite colour (haha), but to say thank you for being the coolest, pretend big sister, that a girl could have! xoxo

Nicholas Tolley 23 Mar 2012 at 5:32 pm

My Mum is disabled and in constant pain , She always Makes time for me and she has a quirky personality . But my mum has a rainbow of colour in her crazy funny way’s brightens up my day with every type of colour . My mum is worth the rainbow colour in her bed room to remember how much we mean to eachother .

Debbie Rennie 23 Mar 2012 at 5:40 pm

I would give them to my mam, she has recently had her purse stolen from her whilst in a charity shop. The purse contained her christmas and birthday money from me and my sister and the weeks house keeping money from dad totalling over £400. They are both pensioners and this has really shook her up. I would love to cheer her up with this lovely bouquet.

Lily Cooksey 23 Mar 2012 at 5:40 pm

My beautiful mom as it’s her birthday on the 30th of March!
Being at University and having very little money I’d love to be able to give her something really awesome!

She brightens my days more than she’ll ever know and I’d love to give her something quite unique back as a ‘happy birthday’ and a thankyou for being the best mom in the world!

As cheesy as it sounds she’s like my rainbow sometimes, when my day seems a little bit rainy she’ll message me and cheer me up!

Really think these would make her day! 🙂

robyn davies 23 Mar 2012 at 5:45 pm

I would give these flowers to my amazing mum! She is actually the best mum in the whole world,she is great fun, very generous and always there to Help, she has just treated the whole familyto a 3 week holiday to florida, my 2 year old son levi is going to have the time of his life. These flowers. Would show her how Thankfull we are for all she does for us and how much we love her xx

Steph 23 Mar 2012 at 5:46 pm

I would give the rainbow flowers to my friend Becky because she looks like a little Irish pixie looking for the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow! Maybe if she gets the flowers she’ll find her pot of gold 🙂

clair evans 23 Mar 2012 at 5:49 pm

it would have to be my mum.. she lives 200 miles away and has raised my daughter deanna, who is now 16. deanna was kicked out by her dad when she was 13 and as they both live in the same town and deanna didn’t want to switch schools she went to live with my mum. Deanna has given my mum a lot of worries and stress but has done an amazing job, something like this would cheer my mum up so very much.

dee szat 23 Mar 2012 at 5:50 pm

I would give these to my husband .Just to thank him which i dont do often enough for putting up with me through the last few years of illness and menopause.Not a good combination.He brightened up my day with flowers and the odd joke that only a wife would laugh at.I know he loves flowers too ,and rainbow roses would make him smile.That would make my day .

leanne garbutt 23 Mar 2012 at 5:51 pm

Roses are red, Violets are blue these rainbow flowers seem to good to be true,my beautiful sister would be tickled pink to recieve them as we miss each other so much since I moved to Cyprus last year, she has been so blue recently and Id love her to find the pot of gold at the end of her rainbow ! I would be green with envy if the prize went to someone else.

Katy Hathaway 23 Mar 2012 at 5:53 pm

To my beloved grandmother, Kit, who up until very recently was the main carer of my granddad who has very bad alzheimer’s. She had recently made a very difficult decision to put him into a care home where he can recieve the level of help that he deserves and needs. She is finally having some respite of her own, but constantly feels guilty about her choice. I love her so much and wish I could do more to help. Flowers would bring her some happiness in this very difficult time. She is the one of the most incredible people that I have ever had the privilege to have known.

mandy 23 Mar 2012 at 5:54 pm

i would give them to my mum.

Laura 23 Mar 2012 at 6:03 pm

I would give these roses to my Mum, she would love them 🙂 she is great to me and my little one
I am sure that someone will be delighted with these wibrint roses 🙂

Katie 23 Mar 2012 at 6:05 pm

i would give them to my amazing boyfriend who has had to put up with a lot over the four years we have been together from dealing with the fact we may not have kids, to my on and off depression and anxiety and mood swings, we may have arguments but he’s stuck by me through thick and thin and has supported me in every decision i make ( however wrong or right they may be). and his amazing support when my nan and granddad died and my family fell apart
i love my amazing boyfriend and although these amazing flowers would go some way to saying thank you i don’t think i could ever repay him x

Lesley 23 Mar 2012 at 6:16 pm

I would keep them! I love rainbows, in fact we had a rainbow theme for our wedding day! I also do a mean impression of George from the TV programme Rainbow!!!

ellen perciVal 23 Mar 2012 at 6:19 pm

My twin sister would love to win this rose boquet as a great birthday present she alwaysEnters competitions but never has any luck so I thought I would enter for her as a suprise as she really deserves them

Samantha eyles 23 Mar 2012 at 6:25 pm

I would send them to my future sister-in-law. She is trying to overcome her depression by attending council sessions and visiting local social groups. These would really help cheer her up and reflect her personaility exactly.

Shelly Meredith 23 Mar 2012 at 6:35 pm

I would give these to myself because
R oses are my favourite flower, and
A drop of colour in my life might
I nspire me to change my attire; nobody wears
B lack as much as I do! So, I can
‘O nestly’ say, I should be the
W inner of this beautiful bouquet! 🙂

Shelly Meredith 23 Mar 2012 at 6:36 pm

“nobody wears” should have been my ‘n’ in Rainbow!

sharon dixon 23 Mar 2012 at 6:43 pm

I would give them to my friend at work Gaynor, I have just returned to work after being off ill for 12 months. She came to see me at home every week to cheer me up, kept me up to date with all the gossip and sent me loads of rude and funny jokes. She suffered an anuerysm on her brain a couple of years ago and has never once felt sorry for herself. She is a very kind and generous person always willing to help others all the time. She extends her kindness to family, friends and strangers she gave up her xmas to help at a homeless shelter in Manchester. Now I’m back at work she has volunteered to be my mentor. I lover her very much she is a very special person.

Georgina Foote 23 Mar 2012 at 6:49 pm

I’d have to give them to a friend. This is a friend obsessed by rainbows. She dresses her son in rainbows, she carries him in rainbows, she dresses in rainbows, she has rainbows in her hair, I’m sure her house is full of rainbows too. She loves them. My Facebook newsfeed is bombarded daily with rainbows. Could add to the collection if I won these, I’d send them to her. Something new and different isn’t it. Maybe I am missing the pot of gold at the bottom of the rainbow, I don’t know?!

Sue Robinson 23 Mar 2012 at 6:51 pm

I would give them to the Little Irish Guy down the street, in the hope that he would exchange them for his pot of gold …. ;-))

Elle 23 Mar 2012 at 7:01 pm

As a jack-of-all-trades pagan lesbian jeweler who handspins the yarns she crochets with and delights in randomly sending weird and wacky and wonderful things to cheer up friends and family and who always answers the question “What is your favourite colour?” with “Rainbow!”, I would send them to myself. Plus, I’ve never recieved flowers.

sharon milne 23 Mar 2012 at 7:06 pm

I would give them to my baby sister, she is fun to be around, caring, sharing and everything you want in a sister. This September she will be my maid of honour when I get married. She is the worlds greatest god mother to my beautiful son and brightens every room she walks into xxxx

Rumbarani Naidoo 23 Mar 2012 at 7:19 pm

I would give them to my sister, Gram Moodley. She has been through so much in her life, but still keeps a happy and smiling face all the time. Any other person in her situation would have thrown in the towel a long time ago, but she has and is still that one happy go lucky lady.

Louise 23 Mar 2012 at 7:33 pm

I would give them to my mum, and who really needs a reason to treat their mother??

Jennifer Macken 23 Mar 2012 at 7:34 pm

I would give them to my great friend and soon to be housemate Ruth. She has helped me through heartbreak and depression and even when she has her own bad days she is there for me and as bright and colourful as these roses.

Freda Gibbon 23 Mar 2012 at 8:10 pm

I have already commented on facebook to try to win these beautiful flowers for my mother-in-law who will be 100 yrs old on 4th April

elaine robinson 23 Mar 2012 at 8:12 pm

I’d give them to my mam,she is the best mam anyone could ask for.

laura fowler 23 Mar 2012 at 8:14 pm

i would give these to my mum, she has 1 daughter, 2 sons, 1 step daughter, 2 son in laws, 2 daughter in laws,1 granddaughter, 2 grandsons, 4 step grandsons and numerous pets. She is the ultimate rainbow mum who loves everyone equally and doesnt see the differences just the beauty.

Debbie Hall 23 Mar 2012 at 8:21 pm

I would receive these roses for myself, I have not had enough reasons to smile lately, and when i was in the refuge 1 good friend of mine sent me flowers every week to brighten my day, I never received flowers on mothers day and this would be a belated smile. My friends say when I smile it makes them smile too, so please help me spread a smile, thank you.

Maryam Rasool 23 Mar 2012 at 8:27 pm

My best friend Rowshon as she’s getting married on the 4th of April.

cindy 23 Mar 2012 at 8:32 pm

My mate who’s aunty has just passed away quite suddenly. We aren’t going to see each other for 3 weeks, so these will definitely remind her of me as I love bright colours and roses, and therefor there couldn’t be a much better cheer up and keep going gift.

Rose 23 Mar 2012 at 8:33 pm

I was out shopping with my friend who is a little older than me, everything she picked up was very bright and I asked her why she didn’t choose natural colours .. She said as we age we naturally go for bright colours as our eye sight goes! This is why I would send them to her, but more so because she really deserves them she’s had a really tough year! … Oh and not forgetting .. Is a lovely friend too.

kuli lombardelli 23 Mar 2012 at 9:00 pm

The flowers would definitely have to go to my sister. She is always “getting on with it” and never lets anything get her down. They do not have much money and I know the last time she received flowers was on her wedding day 15 years ago. She has a wonderful personality and the flowers match the spectrum in her personality perfectly.

Deb P 23 Mar 2012 at 9:05 pm

I would give these to my friend Joyce at work as she is our colourful rainbow at work, always there to cheer us up when we are feeling down and a shoulder to lean on when we need it. She deserves these flowers because she is vibrant, colourful and always happy. Please let our Joycie P have them!!

Freda Gibbon 23 Mar 2012 at 9:20 pm

My mother-in-law, Doris Gibbon, will be 100 years old on 4th April. In the past she has been a very colourful character just like your Rainbow Roses. I know if I won them she would really be delighted to have them. If I win the lottery I would buy them anyway as they are beautiful just like my mother-in-law.

Carrie Nugent 23 Mar 2012 at 9:21 pm

I would give them to my Fiance Richard. He is a wonderful selfless man, and recently suggested we ask all the guests at our wedding to donate to charity instead of buying us gifts as he says he has everything he needs already. He loves flowers and I know he would be tickled pink with this little bunch! I would even send them into his work via my friend who he works with and have him surprised! He would love it! 🙂 They are so stunning!

JOY HAYDON 23 Mar 2012 at 9:23 pm


carol mitchell 23 Mar 2012 at 9:38 pm

I would send the flowers to the residents of the care home I manage. The bouquet would be a talking point for days and cheer up Mary who has just found out that she is not the oldest resident at 92 !

melanie rainbow 23 Mar 2012 at 9:46 pm

i would have to give them to myself, as they were made for me as i am Mrs Rainbow, and i would love to have some flowers named after me!

laura jones 23 Mar 2012 at 10:09 pm

id love to give these to my daughters to share having them was like finding gold at the end of the rainbow and they have always brought light into my life ever since!

Sue Swanborough 23 Mar 2012 at 11:06 pm

Would give them to my daughter – for putting up with a mum like me!

Laura Mone 24 Mar 2012 at 12:14 am

I would love to brighten up my nearest and dearest friend who, despite being a single mum with her son being paraplegic and everything else life throws her way, she will ALWAYS manage to make me smile 🙂 xXx

Kate 24 Mar 2012 at 12:17 am

I’d give them to my mum, at 77 still trying to be “mum” to the whole world, so full of energy and positive enthusiasm. If I could be half the woman she is, I’d be doing better than I am! She loves the unusual, and flowers too, so these roses would be custom made for her.

Alexis Pettie 24 Mar 2012 at 1:20 am

I think my best friends deserves these because she is always there for me, in good times and in bad, she is a vibrant, vivacious, selfless, generous woman, who is always thinking of everyone else first, and herself last. She has been around me all my life and i know will always be there for me, as i will her. She hasn’t had the easiest of lives between caring for my dad for many years, before his passing, bringing up 7 children, and laterly caring for her elderly mother. She also isn’t in the best of health but if she knew i was telling you this she would go mad. My best friend is my wonderfull, beautiful Mum and i love and respect her more than words can say. She is my inspiration, my world and my hero, and these flowers would express to her all the joys of her personality, that i usually take for granted

vicky udakis 24 Mar 2012 at 1:42 am

well……i’d keep them all to myself because i sure do want them they are amazeing, and oh how everyone would envy me they are weird and wonderful just like me 🙂 ps how good would these look as my wedding bouquet x

Fran Saunders 24 Mar 2012 at 4:03 am

I would love these sent to my gorgeous daughter as a thank you for being my carer, despite having problems of her own brought on by callous people who have treated her badly. If she were to get them I’m sure she would feel happy for a little while, and to see her happy would make me happy…double whammy. Thank you for reading this.

Laura 24 Mar 2012 at 9:00 am

I would give them to my fiancé, as he is the pot of gold at the end of my rainbow! he is my rock and supported me through a tough couple of years I wouldn’t be without him and want to thank him and tell him I love him! The flowers inspire this and speak for themselves they are beautiful! X

Mills 24 Mar 2012 at 9:47 am

I would give these flowers to my wife who has tolerated my colourful personality for the last 20 years. She has also given me 3 wonderful beautiful children, each very much alike but also with plenty of individuality. She is suh a loving, caring and generous person who simply loves flowers and I try to buy her some as often as possible.

Lisbeth 24 Mar 2012 at 10:23 am

My mother-in-law would love to receive these because she has been very sick since the beginning of January. She is now out of hospital but even on Mother’s Day my brother-in-law couldn’t get her flowers but picked some daffodils from her own garden to give for her! She is housebound so it would be lovely to bring the garden in with flowers in her bedroom.

Bryony Ridge 24 Mar 2012 at 10:23 am

I would give these flowers to my dad. We have a large collection of obscure fake flowers – knitted ones, inflatable ones, light-up ones. He has a great sense of humour and would really appreciate such a quirky real-life present! We like flower pressing and would press some of the petals when I next visit, so the gift doesn’t have to be so temporary. I also love subverting the gender stereotype by giving flowers to men. In my experience it always brings a surprised smile the their faces!

Sandra Stiff 24 Mar 2012 at 10:35 am

I’d give them to my mum, despite all the grief i give her, she’s still here to help me through the hard times 🙂

Jean Vaughan 24 Mar 2012 at 10:38 am

Definitely to my adopted daughter- who has coped with so much in her life and come out the other side as bright as this rainbow of flowers.Now a qualified nurse, caring for those who are terminally ill she has also become a Beaver leader. She has married and has two wonderful sons who I have adopted as my grandsons and between them all they bring so much sunshine and colour into my life.Having given me so much to live for I would love to be able to give something back which I know she would adore

Sheila Sefton 24 Mar 2012 at 10:42 am

I would give them to my mother – she is a bit dippy and would think they were fake so I would love to see her face when she found out they were real!

Stacey Corrin 24 Mar 2012 at 10:43 am

I think I would treat myself and give them to me!

I have a 2 year old who spent a year in hospital for his first year, I just had twins in November and my mum passed away on Christmas Day very suddenly. Life is hard and I struggle at times to be able to look on the brighter side of life, but despite everything that has happened, I’m still fighting onward and looking at your roses would remind me of the wonderful youth and innocence that I have brought into the world through my children. Even if I still put the kettle in the fridge instead of the milk, and forget that I’m actually wearing my specs when I’m hunting high and low for them!

Tracy Nixon 24 Mar 2012 at 10:45 am

I would give them to my two little girls for their bedroom! They are 4 and 6 and into rainbows, fairies, unicorns and all things magical! I think they would be fascinated to see rainbow roses!!!! They would be the talk of the school and I’m sure my boys would try to scientifically create replica roses using food colourings! (They have already changed white carnations into blue, red and yellow carnations using just that!)

K KAUR 24 Mar 2012 at 10:46 am

I would love to win the bouquet of Rainbow Roses and give them to my favourite aunt who is mad about flowers! I bet in all her life she has never seen such a psychedelic arrangement, it may stun her into silence (for about two minutes!!) In summer she spends much of her time gardening and her garden always is preened to perfection!! She works hard all the time and she could do with a rainbow surprise to make her smile!

Natalie Main 24 Mar 2012 at 11:15 am

I would give these flowers to my mum, I know it’s a bit cliché and everybody will be saying the same but she always says a bouquet of flowers is like receiving a ray of sunshine in a vase. They make her smile which is something she needs after the last couple of years she’s had.
Although to be fair she does always tells me to never trust a man with a monobrow and baked beans next your fried egg is just plain wrong, so maybe a bouquet of Rainbow Roses will inspire her to come up with better advice.

Kathleen Lynch 24 Mar 2012 at 11:19 am

I would give these to my niece Carla who has similar roses as her Facebook profile picture! Like her these roses are bright, vibrant and loud!

Rebecca Coyne 24 Mar 2012 at 11:19 am

I’d give the rainbow roses to my husband to be
The reasons why will become plain to see.
See living with him is a rainbow itself
he should definitely come with a warning for your health.
He’s red when he’s angry or been in the sun too long
and blue when he’s upset and something is wrong.
Yellow that comes when he’s feeling a bit rough
and green with jealousy if he thinks I’ve got my eye on some piece of hot stuff.
But we get married in July and I just want to show
that I love his rainbow personality more than he can know.
He brings colour to my life, once dreary and grey
and brightens up each and every single day.
So that is why I’d give them to my hubby to be
to say i love you, you mean the world to me.

Li Young 24 Mar 2012 at 11:32 am

A bunch of roses I would give
to my lovely neighbour Sheila
ever so helpful when I was ill
I know that these would please her

Aimee Pillinger 24 Mar 2012 at 11:32 am

i would give them to my beautiful nan because she hates in door flowers and would give them back to me and there nothing better than getting a gift from your nan!

kate peterson 24 Mar 2012 at 11:39 am

To my best friend’s mum, Nada. She’s like a second mum to me and always looks after me and my daughter, even though I’m all grown up now! She’s Italian and a really colourful character so these would match her perfectly.

Natalie Lee 24 Mar 2012 at 11:46 am

My mum would love these as its her perfect colours she always wears bright colours and likes to make her daughters cringe with her latest fashion statements so these roses would be perfect for her

Ian Henderson 24 Mar 2012 at 11:47 am

it has to be my mother in law, she is a picture of healthyness and takes brownies and rainbows every week for the last 20 years , (rainbows being the longest) and these would be a lvely gift from all at the organisation to say thanks for all her dedication

Julie E Henderson 24 Mar 2012 at 11:50 am

i know they are bright
But they are perfect for my husband who used to be a florist 15 years ago

Ange 24 Mar 2012 at 12:07 pm

This rainbow of flowers reminds me of my mum I bought colours of the rainbow in flowers as she adored any flower and any colour. As mothers day approached I never look upon as being sad I cheered myself up with my colourful arrange of flowers and her smile was in evryone.
Love always MumXX

Sue Cook 24 Mar 2012 at 12:29 pm

I’d give them to my husband, he would then understand how nice it is to recieve flowers and maybe I would be given them more often myself, and he could never forget this fantastic bouquet of roses as they’re as colourful as his personality, truly wonderful.

Steph Meakin 24 Mar 2012 at 12:29 pm

Who said roses can’t be vibrant, I’d rather give these than a boring house plant! I’d gift them to mum who is whacky and different but just like these roses she is so brilliant! Bright petals of purple, green and yellow, Just like my mum these roses are anything but mellow! My mum is a lady who deserves rainbow roses as a gift and I’m sure if she did she wouldn’t be miffed!

liz denial 24 Mar 2012 at 12:55 pm

Looks aren’t that important to me
What matters most is personality
I need a man who makes me laugh our loud
That’s what makes him stand out from the crowd
Keith Lemon’s the perfect man for me
Though he’s not everyone’s cup of tea
He wouldn’t need to buy me gifts galore
Just be himself & make me roar
He’s great for my figure with laughtersize
It’s like jogging on the inside till you shrink in size
He has to be my guilty pleasure
And I’m sure these roses he will treasure
Just like these flowers he’s full of fun
And he’ll always be my number one

Clare 24 Mar 2012 at 1:01 pm

I would give them to my running group Leader Marika Dowse. She is currently taking part in the Jurassic Coast Challenge (3 marathons in 3 days) on the very challenging Jurassic Coastal Path. All of this is for the charity Children with Cancer as she lost her 8 year old Niece last year to Leukaemia. Her husband is taking part in the Great Wall of China trek in September as well. Her love of running is passed on to us and, as a group, we have taken part in many marathons, half marathons as well as the Four Peaks Challenge, raising money for a variety of charities. She really is an inspiration to us all.

Natalie Forward 24 Mar 2012 at 1:27 pm

I would give them to my friend with the most beautiful colourful personality. She has just recently come through cancer and while enduring chemo she never lost her wit and positivity. I always say there are one or two people in your lifetime you meet who radiate light and colour and you can’t help but want to be around them. Maybe with a colourful bouquet she would have some colour beaming back at her.

Rachael Simmons 24 Mar 2012 at 1:31 pm

I would give them to me! I would include a love message to myself with lots of kisses. Or even better, with a message from my fiance, so when they arrive he’ll think he’s either gone mad or has amnesia! 😀

amanda Burridge 24 Mar 2012 at 1:35 pm

I would give them to my wife, she is the yellow to my blue, Pink to my purple and red to my green, we balance each other perfectly and she always brightens my day.

Angela Sandhu 24 Mar 2012 at 1:44 pm

Wow these flowers are beautiful! I would give them to myself. Sounds a bit selfish but i am always doing things for everyone else and think i deserve to be a bit selfish when it comes to some flowers which i think are gorgeous!

stephanie tsang 24 Mar 2012 at 1:50 pm

I’d give these to my mum. She loves flowers and lately she’s been a great help to me by travelling 200 miles to come and babysit my daughter for me each week. I’d love to give her these to say thank you.

Fiona May 24 Mar 2012 at 2:17 pm

I would give them to my Dad’s pet Darlek, I do miss the old Doctor Who series from the 70’s and i’m sure these retro colours would remind everyone of the good old days including him.

Val Rudd 24 Mar 2012 at 2:26 pm

I would give them to my best friend, she got her hair coloured recently and lets just say it didn’t turn out according to plan, the flowers do remind me of her a little.

Iain 24 Mar 2012 at 3:01 pm

My mum because she would like the colours. 🙂

katherine grieve 24 Mar 2012 at 3:24 pm

shhhhhhh dont tell anyone but i would keep them for myself!

Anne-Marie Large 24 Mar 2012 at 4:41 pm

I’d give them to my best friend. She is so bubbly and smiley and has such a colourful personality. She’s lovely to everyone she meets and is very friendly. Then I’d ask to borrow them so I could take some awesome photos!

maureen moss 24 Mar 2012 at 5:50 pm

It would have to be my husband he loves flowers SO MUCH…..they remind me of a fun fair a bit like the wooden ones of years gone by…they would remind him of his “fun” years as they are so bright, colourful and cheerful.

Hilda Hazel Wright 24 Mar 2012 at 5:54 pm

I’d give them to me because I’m selfish and I value myself highly enough to know that I deserve them! Also I know that I would really appreciate their beauty in my strangely multi coloured house every day! I’d have to move them from room to room to see which colour room they fitted in best out of the blue, purple, orange or yellow rooms…or maybe just the rest of the house that is cream!!

kirstine meredith 24 Mar 2012 at 6:15 pm

I would give them to my husband who turns 40 on 10th April this year!!! Just 10 days before is my birthday and so a belated joint birthday present will make up for the absent present that I know he wont be buying!!!!!

Kim Youngs 24 Mar 2012 at 6:34 pm

Roses are red, violets are blue
l love to win the roses as give something to look forward to.
I love to enter competitions and answer questions like this on my yahoo

Kate Edwards 24 Mar 2012 at 7:28 pm

I would give it to my nan in law… evelyn who has become a nan to me, she told me when my last grandparent died (my gramp) i’ll always be your nan 🙂 nothing has ever meant more to me. She is 86 and exudes vibrance through her personality and her love of life and sharp wit. She is the true matriarch of the family and we all love her dearly she raised my husband from a toddler too. Unfortunately she is due to have a replacement heart valve soon which she is terrified about but she is so fit and strong in mind i am sure she would come through fine -this would cheer her right up x

Nikki Crick 24 Mar 2012 at 7:52 pm

I would like to receive these myself! I am pregnant with my first baby, so am constantly treating her, would be lovely to have my day brightened by these lovely flowers.

Joanne thomas 24 Mar 2012 at 9:35 pm

definately my friend deb, she is completely wacky and off the wall, but an absolute diamond as a friend, she has had a tough couple of years but still manages to bring up 3 kids on her own, work full time and organise all our friends get togethers and our annual weekend away

Laura 24 Mar 2012 at 9:39 pm

Stunningly Bold, Strikingly Bright and Simply Beautiful, a Rainbow Roses Vase would make anyone’s day. I’d give them to my Mum because they’re a perfect match; she’s boldly fought through all the challenges life has thrown at her, her tastes are bright but sophisticated and best of all her personality is simply beautiful.

samantha Smith 24 Mar 2012 at 10:14 pm

id give it to my mum as shes a miserable cow and needs cheering up!!

Im joking shes the best 😀

Adele Leek 24 Mar 2012 at 10:42 pm

I would give these to my mum, Margaret.
She’s very funny, colourful and vibrant for an old un of 82.
It would be great to see her face turn all the colours of the rainbow to receive them. Ha Ha!

Broms 24 Mar 2012 at 11:00 pm

I would give them to my best friend Crazzeee Carleigh, she is hilarious and always there for me. She loves these roses so much, they make her happy. If she doesnt get them and I tell her that i tried she will probably slap me,(ha ha) its also her birthday on the 29th so please help me make it the best day it can be. Shes as bright and bold as these rainbow roses and thats what is the key, to her being the best friend ever please please pick me!!!!!xxxxxx

laura cope 25 Mar 2012 at 12:04 am

I would give it to my crazy friend as her hair is currently the same colours as the bright vibrant bouquet. My friend lost her hair in chemo now she wears wigs in all the colours of the rainbow and she looks amazing.

Lucy 25 Mar 2012 at 9:42 am

I’d give them to my chameleon-like (some might say Jekyll & Hyde) husband, as I don’t think he’s ever had flowers before, yet has given me so many.

Louise Smith 25 Mar 2012 at 10:25 am

My husband as he’s just brilliant. He does all the cooking (and can bake cakes etc), the DIY and he even takes me shopping (and carries the bags) so roses with many colours would show my thanks for a man of many talents.

Catwoman 25 Mar 2012 at 10:25 am

I would give them to “Bossy” Our neverending cheerful, mad and bossy running coach who is as we speak running the Jurassic Coast run for charity and an inspiration to so many people. We all at “FIT2run” in Devon think she is crazy but we luv her. Well done Marika xx

Judy Wright 25 Mar 2012 at 11:34 am

I would give these to my son… he could then give them to ME as a late Mother’s Day present, still waiting for my flowers and chocs 😉

Crystal 25 Mar 2012 at 11:45 am

I’ve always been a lover of rainbow colours , ever since I can remember . I’m 26 and I have a rainbow canopy over my bed . I surround myself with colour and I believe it makes life feel brighter , so much so my Mum calls me Joe ! x

James Holyland 25 Mar 2012 at 2:50 pm

my mum-stop her moaning for a bit!

Lynne Donnelly 25 Mar 2012 at 5:06 pm

I would give these flowers to my arty farty sister who loves all things bright and colourful. I’m sure she would take some kind of inspiration from them as she would sit them on her (very messy) desk while doing her designs.

Solange 25 Mar 2012 at 5:11 pm

I would give it to my Mum because she has been through so much in her life, including being left a single mother of three kids when my Dad died. She never complains, and is always there for anyone. She’s never got any money because she will invariably give her last pound to someone who needs it. My dream is to be in a financial position to look after her for a change. I’m not ashamed to say that she is my heroine and the person I look up to the most in this world. No matter that I am an adult and a mother myself, I am proud to say that:


PS – She’s not perfect, I know that, like the fact that every piece of advice she has ever given me, (especially in regards to parenting), has been 100% spot on is pretty annoying!

Debbie Bird 25 Mar 2012 at 5:13 pm

my bestfriend is a rainbow hue
she cheers me up when i feel blue
her hair is bright orange
well some call it ginger
but you could not call her a whinger
she wears colours that clash all the time
and falls for guys who hand her a line
but for me i know she does care
she is my best friend and always there

Fizzz 25 Mar 2012 at 6:43 pm

I have to nominate Marika Dowse. Leader of our running group. She is an inspiration to a lot of people. We listen to her, (you cant fail to, she’s very loud)!!! we follow her advice and then because of that acheive things we never thought possible. She can persuade you to run til you hurt every where! But we don’t mind and we gladly do it for her. Please, please give Marika these beautiful roses. xxxx

Frances Heaton 25 Mar 2012 at 6:48 pm

I would give them to my husband. He loves gardening and adding colour and vibrancy to the herbacious borders, However, his rose growing skills are sadly lacking. His floribunda became infested with greenfly, the rambling roses rambled away to a withered, mulchy mess, and his Empress Josephine developed blackspot, mildew and rust!
He needs inspiration to create the perfect rose specimen!

This beautiful, vibrant rainbow bouquet would show him what could be achieved, and lead my old man on to greater things. The perfect inspiration!

Cheryl Lovell 25 Mar 2012 at 7:22 pm

These are amazing and I would give them to my mum! She is fab and deserves every little treat that I can give her 🙂

Corinne Faulkner 25 Mar 2012 at 7:52 pm

I would give them to my mum as she is bright like all the colours of the rainbow 🙂

Cathryn Bowen 25 Mar 2012 at 9:45 pm

My mommy ….. its her birthday 29th March … her to the moon and back as to me she is zippy, bungle and george

Lindy 26 Mar 2012 at 12:13 am

These Roses were meant for my mum
RED – For all the stories she READ to my as a child
ORANGE – For all Vitamin C she gave me to keep me healthy
YELLOW – For teaching me not to be cowardly and stand-up to what I believe
GREEN – For looking after me when I was sick
BLUE – For cheering me up when I was feeling BLUE
INDIGO – For the devotion she gave me and wisdom she taught me
VIOLET – For her calming and serene nature

Kerry 26 Mar 2012 at 1:09 am

I would use them in my wedding bouquet … We’re on a budget so trying to do everything ourselves … We have a rainbow theme … We lost my step dad a few years ago and every time we see a rainbow we know it’s him saying hello 🙂

Sophie Trinder 26 Mar 2012 at 9:50 am

I would love to give these to my 4 and a half year old daughter who is obsessed with flowers, so much so that last summer she decided to pick all the flowers from our garden to my horror. Hopefully these beautiful rainbow roses would stop her from destroying our garden this year! 🙂

ANJU 26 Mar 2012 at 12:21 pm

I would take them to the cemetery & put them on my Dad’s grave as he absolutely loved bright colours, he once painted one wall purple, another orange, & another pink. Also loads of people could share the rainbow at Heath Lane cemetery.

sharonv 26 Mar 2012 at 12:41 pm

As beautiful as they are together, I’d share them out, one each for 12 of my lovely friends and family to enjoy how amazing these are. x

Corrie Fewwwww 26 Mar 2012 at 2:13 pm

I would give the beautiful Rainbow Roses to my wonderful partner Ian to say “thank you” for being blooming amazing!! I lost both legs in a road accident 2 yrs ago and it has been a long and difficult journey to recovery. However I am very fortunate because I have been comforted, nurtured and supported all the way by my Ian who has been a constant, solid rock of support throughout what, at times, has been chaos! He has helped with practical tasks, like making our home wheelchair friendly or my personal care. He has helped with the spiritual things too, like coping with me being diagnosed with PTSD and the constant battle of rehabilitation and learning to walk again on prosthetic legs!! My Ian has been (& continues to be) a superstar, without whom this journey would have been far more difficult! His care and comitment deserves to be rewarded.

Dolly 26 Mar 2012 at 4:16 pm

I would give them to Marika Dowse our running group leader, sheis an inspiration to us all. If it wasn’t foe marika i would not be running. She is very supportive and not only within the group. Please give her these beautiful roses as she deserves them for helping so many people and works really hard at fundraising for chiildren with cancer,x

Cristina 26 Mar 2012 at 5:42 pm

ME – I deserve them as I’ve had a depressing winter and really need something bright to cheer me up

Emma Gallagher 26 Mar 2012 at 6:17 pm

I would like to nominate myself, I’m a full time Mum who writes comedy for 2 shows (London and Brighton) but I havnt been to either as I can not get babysitting cover in the evenings and do not live near either venue. I spend my time making others laugh but don’t actually get to laugh myself so these bright cheerful flowers would be a great boost and inspiration that I need to continue the comedy writing.

Nicola 26 Mar 2012 at 11:04 pm

I would give them to my Mum because she is a refined elegant women.. yet she is just like a rose sweet once you get past the thorns!! Lol

cecelia Allen 26 Mar 2012 at 11:57 pm

My daughter in law’s like a rainbow
her beauty shines after a storm
lifting spirits like sunshine
she’s caring, loving and warm
She’s brought such colour to my life
knowing that she is my son’s dear wife
His health is poor but she keeps him smiling
like a rainbow rose, just truly beguiling

suzanne morgan 27 Mar 2012 at 12:22 am

I would give them to my son’s hamster, who ran through the poster paints on sunday and helped collaborate with a school poster project.They would furnish rainbow’s (formally goldie the hamster) home perfectly as they would match his red blue and yellow fur. Rainbow’s always been a colourful character.

Jacquie Bennett 27 Mar 2012 at 8:39 am

I would keep them for myself !

Kev Paddock 27 Mar 2012 at 8:57 am

I would give the rainbow roses to my mum. Shes always able to BUNGLE some money off my dad to spend in GEORGE at Asda. If theres something she really likes, she just wont shut up. My dad would love it if she was ZIPPY and every so often he could shut her up!
Seriously though, my mum is my rock! and she deserves the roses as a token of my love for her.

LAURA MAGPIE STERLING 27 Mar 2012 at 10:19 am

my mom would love to win /to win these flowers would really cheer my mom up as she is all ways in pain and now is having trouble hearing she is all ways happy

Deonne hardy 27 Mar 2012 at 12:01 pm

I would love these flowers knowing my sister has already tried to win them for me but she lives in Cyprus ( Leanne garbutt)
She knows things have been tough this last year without my family to support me since they moved away , but knowing she would still go to the end of the rainbow to cheer me up makes these rainbow roses mean so much between us .

Deonne hardy 27 Mar 2012 at 12:11 pm

I would live these flowers after knowing my little sis tried to enter on my behalf , her family and my parents moved to Cyprus last year and things have been difficult at home without their support and hugs from time to time , but knowing she would go to the end of the rainbow to see me smile makes me feel loved , I miss my little sis her hubby and my beautiful niece and nephew so much so to receive these would be like you sending me a little bit of their love over to keep me strong till I can afford to go visit them xxx sisters are forever and as long as we remember that it’s only a rainbow between us it will be so much easier xxx

Lily 27 Mar 2012 at 12:41 pm

I would give them to my friend, her husband never bought flowers for her. It may well stir some feelings of jealousy, if she receives this beautiful expensive looking mystery bouquet.

Michelle Bamber 27 Mar 2012 at 3:35 pm

I’d give them to my teenage daughter who is currently doing her GCSE exams, they could brighten her bedroom up which as she is 16 could certainly do with it, and you never know it might even encourage her to remove some of the dirty glasses, cereal bowls, cutlery, empty crisp packets,used tissues, empty primark bags, dirty underwear or old trashy magazines from out of her bedroom 🙂 (Although I doubt it)

michele omalley 27 Mar 2012 at 7:58 pm

I would give them to Russell Grant the astrologer as he is the most colourful man I know and so so funny

Lindsay Calcraft 27 Mar 2012 at 9:41 pm

I would give them to my best bud Lucy, we’ve been friends for 20 years, she’s like a big sister to me. She has been going through operations, chemo and radiotherapy for the last 18m at only 32. She finished her last radiotherapy dose last week and this would be the perfect gift to mark the end of a difficult stage in her life. She’s been an inspiration to us all, fighting with such attitude, carrying on going to work, visiting other chemo patients, singing carols at christmas in the childrens ward (and you should hear her sing – she’s terrible! :-D) but never dwelling on the true horror that having ovarian cancer really is….

I love you Luce and I’m so delighted we get to keep you for a while longer

Lesley Bain 27 Mar 2012 at 11:21 pm

I would give these to my wee 8yr old daughter, Abbie. She loves flowers but has never been given a bunch of her very own, and these would suit her personality perfectly.
She is a real wee rainbow in all of our lives, an amazingly funny wee girl who lights up all of our lives. The best daughter, sister and auntie ever 🙂

val rush 28 Mar 2012 at 9:33 am

I would give them to my daughter, they describe her very well, totally crazy, fun loving makes every one laugh, and will always make light of a bad situation, but also very caring, she deserves them.

linda curtis 28 Mar 2012 at 10:56 am

i would give these to my husband as he always sats he married and english rose
and these are stunning i never seen such beautiful roses xx

Ruth Longville 28 Mar 2012 at 12:52 pm

I would send them to myself as I had 6 gnashers out yesterday and a new plate fitted and nobody else will think to send me flowers to show me how brave I am, and how pretty my new smile is!!! Please cheer me up Interflora and make my husband feel really guilty!!!!!!

Maria Knight 28 Mar 2012 at 2:08 pm

I would give this beautifully strange bouquet of flowers to my beautifully strange fiance who lastnight told me he’d love to just quit his job and become a childrens story teller because his good at voices!!……i told him that “as much as its great to want to follow your dreams and fantasys, a furniture spraying storyteller isnt going to get a place on Cbeebies Bedtime Stories” Lol

Robyn Clarke 28 Mar 2012 at 3:27 pm

I’d give these to my gran. I’m sure you’ve seen her around! She’s the pensioner that always has everything in place. Her shoes match her handbag(and her leather gloves if its cold). Everything she has or does is colour coordinated. She loves fresh flowers and I’d have great joy watching her with a bunch of roses as colourful as these debating where to put them!

Kelly Hooper 28 Mar 2012 at 3:41 pm

I’d give them to my mother because:
She loves to sit in sunshine
but sometimes has the blues
she can be a bit of a chocolate nut brownie
Her mood comes in many hues

She quite often sees red
She kicked her daisy slippers at me dad 😮
She doesnt think the grass is greener
But does sometimes like to be bad 😉

Ive seen her wear clashing colours
The lime green jumpsuit is remembered well 😮
The brighter the clothes the better
Though she never wore those suits of shell!

So she deserves these flowers
because they match her perfectly
they are ever changing
just as mum likes to be

James Donovan 28 Mar 2012 at 4:04 pm

I would like to give the these amazing roses to my fiance Emma. She is one in a million and means more to me then anything. We are approaching our 6 year anniversary and this will be a great little gift

Zoe Hermitage 28 Mar 2012 at 4:05 pm

Id send them to my husband whos been feeling rather glum,
To brighten up his morning and for a bit of fun,
He’s missing all the sunshine,
As he’s working all the time,
And allthough he misses our daughter he still doesnt whine,
So id write a little card just so he would know,
that were his pot of gold and were waiting at the end of this rainbow!

Prerna Gupta 28 Mar 2012 at 4:21 pm

I would give it to my husband as he is as colorful as these flowers..makes me laugh all the time..but get angry sometimes as well..very loving and very u see…bright colors and dark colors at the same time…

Julz 28 Mar 2012 at 5:57 pm

I would give these to my Mum because she still suffers following a series of operations. Before them she was a very colourful character, now everything takes longer and receiving these would brighten her day!

Christine Mutter 28 Mar 2012 at 8:23 pm

I’d give them to my Mum to show her that I’m her pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!

Alison 28 Mar 2012 at 8:35 pm

I love to win because Id love to have something unique in my room to brighten up this dull room!

Nicola White 28 Mar 2012 at 9:14 pm

I would give them to my mum, because she is the best mum ever, she always puts others first before herself never buys herself anything, and i would like to very much give her something full of colour just for her to tell her how much i love her xx

Beth 28 Mar 2012 at 10:01 pm

I’d give the rainbow flowers to my mum,
Who has a daughter and a son,
We always have lots of fun,
So I want to thank her for cleaning my……!

Jeremy Rance 28 Mar 2012 at 10:14 pm

I would give mine to my best mate Sean, who has just come out as being gay, although we all guessed years ago lol! The colours on the roses are like the gay rainbow flag , and will let him know we all love him for being him

sandy hallett 28 Mar 2012 at 10:38 pm

I would give these to my Mum,
she’s always been really difficult to buy flowers for as her job for the last 30+ years has been working in a garden centre – so as you can imagine plain and boring flowers just won’t do!

These would really make her smile as they are amazingly different

I would love to have Mum suprised with this as despite undergoing chemo and losing all her hair – she still see’s the funny side in things and is always smiling.

Happy flowers for my happy smiling Mum!

Deborah Bird 28 Mar 2012 at 10:57 pm

I wouldn’t give them to anyone, sorry, but i would keep them all for myself!! They are fab and would really help brighten up my day!!

Lynsey Buchanan 28 Mar 2012 at 11:07 pm

I would keep these for myself I love flowers and these are so unique x

Mel K 28 Mar 2012 at 11:11 pm

I would give it to my sister. She has been very unwell and this would hopefully cheer her up. She always loves it when she receives flowers and I think these would make er laugh and smile and see there are still some wonderful unusal things in the world.

I hope whoever wins these , enjoys them, thay are truely mesmerizing xx

Puggs 29 Mar 2012 at 6:18 am

I would give them to my girlfriend CC,
As she has nagged me for 2 years for these roses you see,
And I told her it would not be,
As I could not find these flowers in this country,
They are like her one in a million and the best there could ever be,
They are bright and unbelievably beautiful just like her personality,
Not forgetting it’s her birthday today so this would make her so so happy,
But if I dont win them she still has me (he he)

Lindsey Jones 29 Mar 2012 at 9:02 am

I would give them to my kids to give to me as it is my birthday next week and i would much rather receive these than burnt toast and milky tea in bed x

Lucy Loo 29 Mar 2012 at 12:44 pm

If I could give them to anyone it would be Russell Grant who re-discovered prime time television fame in last year’s Strictly Come Dancing! I think these amazingly beautiful roses would look absolutely fabulous clenched tightly between his teeth during an Argentine tango. I can envisage it now…throwing Flavia around the dancefloor in his unmistakable flamboyant and comical manner that we loved him dearly for sporting a sequinned outfit to match the rose! And whatsmore – you lovely people at InterFlora couldn’t ask for better PR 🙂 I can only hope that in return for this beautiful bouquet he would take me for a twirl (hold fire on the cannon for now though!)

If that made you smile, I would actually give the prize to my wonderful Mum – she is a Ward Sister looking after an Acute Medical Ward for the Elderly. She is a superstar and a total inspiration and has so much love and compassion for everyone in her life.

Jag Kaur 29 Mar 2012 at 1:19 pm

these flowers are the bestest flowers ever – i would give them to my best friend – she has had a very stressful 6months since being married and i know these flowers would be the start of a ray of hope for her furture – she is mad outgoing and just as cheerful as these flowers, she has always been there for me and always has a smile on her face despite all the problems she is facing – they would really pick her up

Pete G 29 Mar 2012 at 3:58 pm

I’d give the bouquet to my mother in law! Yes, yes I know all those jokes but she really is bloomin’ marvellous! Apart from giving birth to my lovely wife she has also put up with my father in law for 58 years – she deserves much more than some flowers for that. And she makes a lovely cuppa too!

Richard Talbot-Ashby 04 Apr 2012 at 10:11 am

I would love to win these for my fiancee. She is the most kind-hearted giving soul on the planet, spending years taking care of her mum, and looking after our own four children, we are getting married in June and she has asked me if we can donate all our gifts to a fund for her young cousin Daniel, who has Cerebal Palsy. She is a true diamond and I would love to win these as I know she has looked at them for our wedding! x

ryan donnelly 17 Apr 2012 at 9:03 pm

i would send.these as a wife who recently had to go.through an.emergency hystorecromy at.age 25.and a.must.have been.she it.and hasnt complained,.we.thankfully.have two beautiful childreb so.are.very lucky.for that, but.i think they symbolise bright strong.and.colorful.and beautiful like the flower.

Sophia 18 Apr 2012 at 8:58 pm

I would give them to my mentor as she’s always thought I was a little odd just like these flowers! Plus I often wear black so multicoloured things are not like me at work.

Freda Gibbon 19 Apr 2012 at 11:46 am

I have already commented on these beautiful flowers to try to win them for my mother-in-law’s 100th birthday. Sadly I didn’t win or I didn’t win the lottery to buy them for her but here’s hoping!

titchylin 19 Apr 2012 at 2:15 pm

same here freda wonder who did win??

Interflora 19 Apr 2012 at 3:01 pm

Hello all!

Thanks for asking who won… The winner was Bryony Ridge (commented on March 24th at 10:23am).

Bryony had the Rainbow Roses delivered to her Dad last Saturday.


Interflora Blog team

Steve 28 Jan 2013 at 8:16 pm

I would giv this to my beautiful fiancé as we are planning to marry next year an last valentines day was a complete flop as we couldn’t get into any restaurants and our takeaway was so late they didn’t bother delivering it so I really need to make up for it this year

Em 11 Feb 2013 at 10:04 pm

I would give these to my Civil Partner as a little reminder of me, as my nickname is “Rainbow”, and they would be very fitting in the colours of the ‘Gay Rainbow’!

Lynda 10 Apr 2013 at 3:01 pm

I would give them to my sister in law in Ireland because she looks after my mam so well overthere I couldnt do without her.
