Lasting Beauty....JustPaperRoses.com Review & Giveaway (CLOSED 8-16-10)

A thing of beauty is a joy forever....(John Keats)

Who doesn't love roses? They're romantic and beautiful and really can lift the spirits and make a person feel loved. Roses that don't wither and fade away are really a special treasure. Imagine a rose that is long lasting, truly unique and a rose that can even be personalized! Where can you find such a rose? --- JustPaperRoses.Com that's where!

I have to admit, I wasn't familiar with JustPaperRoses until just recently. If only I had known about this company sooner! They have such a great variety of custom made individual roses, bouquets, and unique thoughtful gifts for anniversaries, birthdays, holidays and any floral occasion.

I feel very fortunate to have been given the opportunity to review the company's website and a sampling of their products. I received several roses in a beautiful teak bud vase to review, as well as a gorgeous suar wood sculpture called "The Kiss", and a really cute and fun 1st anniversary gift of novelty toilet paper (1st anniversary is the paper anniversary.)



The roses JPR sent me are a sampling of their anniversary roses - 1st Paper, 2nd Cotton, 3rd Leather, 4th Fruit, and 5th Wood.

I think JustPaperRoses.com is a very user-friendly website. I like the tabbed browsing at the top of the main page - where gifts are organized by occasion, and that it shows what the traditional material is for each anniversary from the 1st to the 20th, the 25th and 50th. The layout of the site makes shopping so easy. I like that they have gifts for various occasions, gifts that can be personalized with photos or text, and even roses for that perfect romantic proposal! There's even a Free Reminder Service so you never miss another anniversary or occasion!

The items sent to me were well packed and the presentation was very lovely. The roses are made well and are very pretty in the teak vase. They look so pretty in my kitchen! the flower and stems are very realistic -- just like a real longstem with thorns and all! They're all so gorgeous -- the wood rose hand carved and painted, the leather rose so soft, the paper rose so lifelike, the cotton and fruit rose so cute and whimsical...just like the fun Anniversary Toilet paper! What a great way to get a smile out of the one you love...I imagine rolling it out and making a trail, from the front door, leading to a romantic table set for 2....or put out in the morning in bathroom with some chocolate kisses and a coupon for a massage, later? So many fun things you could do with this!

Our 5th (wood) anniversary is just 10 days away so The Kiss - the hand carved wood figure - is the perfect romantic reminder of our first tender kiss. It's beautifully made and really would compliment any decor. I think it'd be a great gift for Valentines day or any occasion of love, really. JPR has The Kiss figure in aluminum also, for the 10th anniversary or for anyone who loves the more modern silver look.

Oh it would have to be The Kiss that you featured. My dear hubby and I always find a new statue of a couple. We had one entwined on our wedding cake and love finding new couples. It would be used for our up coming 7th anniv. in Sept.

My boyfriend and I have just "committed" to seeing each other exclusively and working on being together long term. I love the Indonesian "Kiss" figurine and think it would be a lovely gift to give him to signify our committment to each other.
