This Quirky Business Lets You Can Send Flamingos Instead Of Flowers, And It Couldn’t Be More Oregon

There is perhaps nothing more delightful than flamingos. These big birds are endearingly bizarre, with their long sinuous limbs and distinct pink hue. The birds have become a mascot for summer and all the warm, good vibes associated with the season. This is also why, in 1957 post-war America, the first plastic lawn flamingos were produced — as a way to add some pizazz to cookie-cutter suburban streets. Today, these kitschy creatures can be found in lawns all across the U.S., adding flair and fun everywhere they flock. So of course, you’ll find these birds in Oregon, too, as it’s a place that totally embraces the weird. In fact, there’s a Portland-based business that lets customers send flamingos instead of flowers… and it couldn’t be more Oregon.
