I adore having flowers at home. I really think flowers in the home helps to bring life to your rooms, especially in the living room where I end up spending most of the time at home. Sending flowers is a lovely way to show love and affection to friends and family, even if you aren’t that close and times have changed with the likes of Marks & Spencer making it even easier to send glorious bouquets through the post. The main issue with those is that you have to be in to accept the delivery and I’ve had it where flowers have ended up at the Royal Mail delivery centre for almost 2 days because you cannot get there! And there is where Bloom & Wild come in.
Now, you have probably seen Bloom & Wild on a number of websites and on Facebook – they have become fairly prominent and I have to say that I’d been thinking about using for them ages. I almost decided to use them myself when I received a wonderful package from some girlfriends after I got engaged.
The main difference with Bloom & Wild is that all of the flowers can fit in through your letterbox – how you ask? By choosing flowers that are in bud which means that you have the longest life of your flowers once they are delivered. GENIUS, right? According to the website, all of the flowers are packed by hand and when you open your package, you can tell that they are. Each of the flowers has been protected by netting to ensure that they aren’t bashed about and I was surprised about how well they were looked after in what seems a quite thin box.
I have to say everything feels and looks so premium – opening the parcel was an absolute joy. I absolutely adored the below after you’ve unpacked all of your flowers is a gorgeous little quote at the bottom of the box:
Here are my flowers in place the day I received them in pride of place and the cover picture to this post is about 3 days later and they were in full bloom!
Honestly, the service I received was amazing. I mean, the flowers were beautiful and I think mine lasted almost two weeks which is practically unheard of of flowers I buy in the supermarket. Also, the packaging and design of the parcel you receive is of the best quality and really makes you feel like you are receiving a premium product.
Additionally, I know at Christmas they have options for mini Christmas trees to send out but they have little posies at the moment in tiny jars which I think is adorable. Prices vary from approximately £20 upwards for a one-off delivery but you can also have subscription of flowers, perfect for a present for a friend that you don’t live near.
Check out Bloom & Wild here and they are across all forms of social media with some of their beautiful creations – I would wholeheartedly recommend checking them out.
