Florists everywhere will be having a busy few weeks with Valentine’s Day in five days’ time and Mother’s Day, (here in the UK at least), just three weeks later on 6th March.
Like most women, I love receiving flowers and whether they are cut from the garden, picked up at the supermarket or delivered, the fact that someone has taken the time and trouble to do so, means the world.
These flowers arrived yesterday from Blossoming Gifts, an online company I have been lucky enough to receive flowers from on three occasions now.
This beautiful bouquet is called Bubblegum Pink Roses and is a hand tied arrangement of 12 large headed, bubblegum pink luxury avalanche roses with 3 silvery eucalyptus and 3 dark glossy ruscus stems. It retails at £31.99 and for an extra £20, the bouquet can be made larger with an extra 12 roses and another two stems of ruscus.
They always arrive beautifully presented wrapped in white cellophane, tied with string and secured in a cardboard box.
The pink is the most beautiful blush shade, my current favourite colour. The edges of the petals have a slightly faded look which adds to their delicate vintage charm. They are simple, unassuming and modest and their beauty is whispered rather than shouted.
They are sublime.
And if this isn’t perfect enough, this particular arrangement comes with a free box of divine Duc D’o chocolates which taste as good as they look.
Extras like vases, cakes, balloons, mugs, teddies and wine can be added to any order and the website has a huge selection of hampers and other gifts too, including a whole selection which can be personalised.
There are a variety of delivery options so making it very convenient. Standard delivery is free and in most cases will be within 24 hours if ordered by 4pm the previous day. Other delivery options are available for those that would prefer a one hour delivery window.
Do take a look at Blossoming Gifts for Mother’s Day Flowers because as a little treat, readers of my blog are entitled to a 33% discount with the code BGIFTS33.
