I was sent this rather wonderful bouquet from Blossoming Gifts, as it’s still my birthday month, I was very happy to receive them! I mean who wouldn’t like to receive flowers in the post? I have the Crème Brûlée bouquet, which has sunglow dino germini, white reagan chrysanthemums, tiny tanacetum single vegmo – that remind me of tiny daisies and delicate greenbell.
I’ve never received flowers in the post so I was a wee bit nervous that they would arrive in pieces. As you can see, they most definitely did not! They arrived in a long box, wrapped in plastic, with a thick damp cloth gathered around the ends of the flowers and of course a sachet of food. The damp cloth meant the flowers were still fresh when they arrived. I cut the ends and popped them straight in a vase – which way do you pronounce it? I like to wrap the plastic from the flowers around the vase, it hides the stems a bit and adds even more colour!
These flowers thoroughly brightened my day, they’re so cheerful and they add a wonderful pop of colour to our living room. I’ve always been a fan of receiving actual post – bills and formal letters don’t count. So to receive a beautiful bunch of flowers in the post, well it was a wonderful gift to land on at my door.
I’d recommend if you’ve any birthdays coming up, or special occasions, or just fancy treating yourself, pop over to blossoming gifts. They have more than just flowers, so if you fancy sending all sorts of goodies there are options. Blossoming gifts deliver 7 days a week, which is rather useful! You can get a 33% discount using the code BGIFTS33, so bit of a winner, gifts and a discount!
