It's not very often that I get asked to review products I actually like or that I get emails with requests that I take seriously (last week I got asked if I wanted to sell my blog?! Um, no.) so I was pleasantly surprised to get an email from Blossoming Gifts - a flower delivery company - asking me to review some flowers from their Autumn Flowers range. I love flowers and our house was unusually flower free at the time as we were just back from our mini moon so I was delighted to say yes.
The flowers arrived boxed up in a easy to carry size package - which was very helpful as I had to take it home on the train after getting them delivered to work - and they were cleverly and neatly wrapped to keep them looking great and also hydrated. I was pleased to see that there were enough to put in two vases and I took photos straight away as the roses looked lovely - I do love yellow. It took a few days for the lilies to bloom - but once they bloomed the colours were stunning.
I also had a lot of fun setting up a little photo shoot against our house, I think the colours of the roses and berries worked well against the wall and our neighbours cat also came to have a nose at what I was doing too - though I made sure he didn't get too close to the lilies.
The flowers have been in our house for a week now and sadly the roses are starting to look a little sorry, however the lilies with the berries and yellow filler ( I have no idea what it is, sorry!) still look great and they make me smile every time I walk into the kitchen, the autumn colours are just perfect.
I never really know where to buy flowers online so I'm glad to have Blossoming Gifts as an option and as well as their seasonal range, they also have cheap flowers under £20 and a range which covers any situation. This particular bunch of flowers also came with free chocolates which is great if you love praline - so Thomas was pleased as I don't and he got to eat them all.
Blossoming Gifts are also kindly offering a dedicated 33% discount on bouquets with the code: BGIFTS33 (this excludes the Flowers by Post range but there are lots of others to choose from) which I think makes them very affordable for the quality and colours. I'm tempted to even get another bunch for myself soon to keep brightening up the house as the dreary weather draws in.
