Who doesn’t love receiving flowers? Flowers have a lovely way of putting a smile on the face of the person receiving them, whatever the occasion.
Last week I was lucky enough to receive a bouquet of my choice from Appleyard London. Initially browsing through the site, I did wonder how I was ever going to choose as there were so many lovely bouquets showing a mix of styles and colours. The Summer Coulis bouquet jumped right out of the page at me and I knew this would be the choice for me.
The perfect choice for Summer with bright cerise pink germini, blue Agapanthus, summer foliage and roses. Bright and colourful, I knew these would brighten up my home.
The flowers arrived very well packaged in a box. Upon opening, I could see the flowers were nestled well inside a cardboard staging that helped them stay upright in the box. Once I removed, I saw they were then in a lovely gift bag, so if you are buying to present as a gift then the bag hides the base of the bouquet holding the casing keeping the flowers hydrated.
Somehow I found the perfect shaped vase to display this bouquet. I was careful to keep the bouquet in tact as I’m not the greatest at flower arranging.
The colours in the bouquet have really brightened up my living room, and have had some admiring from neighbours this weekend. Six days on and the flowers are still looking fresh and like new. I have been very careful to trim their stems every couple of days as this encourages them to stay looking healthy.
I have been very impressed with the quality and delivery of the bouquet and would certainly use Appleyard London again when purchasing flowers.
Disclosure – I received this bouquet free of charge but all opinions are my own
