a bouquet of roses for you


I had the privilege of coming home with a bouquet of fresh roses from Whole Foods the other day. I usually come home with tulips, peonies, or daisies -- so it was a nice change up and I love how they look in my aqua ball jar! 

Did you know that there is such a thing as Whole Trade?  Whole Foods Market Whole Trade roses meet specific criteria including:
  • Meeting product Quality Standards
  • Providing more money to producers
  • Ensuring better wages and working conditions for workers
  • Care for the environment
  • Donating 1% of sales to the Whole Planet Foundation

Those are some great reasons to buy your roses ((or nudge your man to get them)) at Whole Foods.  Plus, they're way more affordable there!


Today, Whole Foods is giving one Oh, Sweet Joy! reader a dozen roses ((awarded as a $25 Whole Foods gift card)). Basically, Whole Foods wants to be your Valentine. To enter, just leave a comment and tell me your favorite Valentine's candy ((hello, heart shaped sweet tarts!)). The winner will be chosen later this week. 

Need some more Valentine's Day inspiration? Here you go :)

love.
