Everyone loves an unexpected delivery from the florist. Are they for me? Who are they from? Let me see! Well last week, during a rather drab dull day, the doorbell rang and I took delivery of a beautiful pink bouquet from 123 Flowers.
Packaged really well in a sturdy box, none of the flowers touched the sides as a stem support within the box kept the bouquet upright and secure.
Wrapped around the stems was white paper and white plastic wrap. When I unwrapped them, the stems were enclosed within a water-soaked sock. This was still full of water, so a long way from drying up.
Inside the box was a lovely card – pink flower design, to match the pink flowers! A very innovative flat-packed pop-up vase comes with the flowers. Also included with this delivery was a glass vase (a £5.99 extra).
Perfectly Pink bouquet
The flowers themselves were a lovely mix of pink carnations, alstroemeria and pistacia. They are lovely and fragrant, filling an enclosed room with a light floral scent. This particular bouquet, Perfectly Pink, costs £22 for the standard option. What’s even better is that 123 Flowers has FREE standard delivery when you order before 7pm. You can also select medium (+£3.00) and large (+£5.00) options. A teddy, a balloon, bottle of wine or champagne, luxury chocolates – even a mini birthday cake – can be added to your flower order.
123 Flowers has a competition running at the moment where you can win free flowers for a WHOLE YEAR! You’ll automatically be entered when you place an order (every order is a single entry – the more you order, the more chances you have). You can enter the competition here.
My Perfectly Pink bouquet looks as fresh today as the day they arrived. Pleasingly the flowers have lasted longer than most cut flowers that I buy in supermarkets. And they look lovely; brightening up these dull autumnal days. You don’t need to wait for a birthday or anniversary to send flowers to someone. A surprise delivery tells the recipient that you care and that you are thinking of them. What a lovely act of kindness x
