It feels like the summer weather has been a bit hit and miss, but for me, not a lot says summer than having some fresh flowers in the house. And with our bi-fold patio doors open regularly to let in a bit of a breeze, I know that the insects have been loving them too! But really, fresh flowers are one of my favourite things. I think they spruce up a room, brighten it up, and just make me happy.
Enter, Freddie’s Flowers. This is basically a subscription service for flowers, where you get flowers delivered to your door for £24 each time. Your flowers get chosen for you, all seasonal and beautiful, and then they get delivered right to your door in a cardboard box (they will collect it at your next delivery if you leave it out too – recycling and all of that). So if like me, you love all things floral and making your home as pretty and welcoming as you can, then this could be the perfect solution for you. I really liked that the flowers are hand picked, and they’re all ready to arrange yourself. So it doesn’t matter what size vases or jars you have, as you can pick and choose the length of the stems. Plus, the flowers aren’t fully open, so you’ve got a couple of days for them to open and look their best.
You get a good bunch of flowers as they are pretty large. So if you’re thinking of value for money, then I reckon you get it – the bunches are much bigger than you get at a supermarket, for example. And although I’d like to think I know what I’m doing when it comes to flower arranging, each bunch comes with instructions on how to assemble which is really handy. But if you’re a budding florist then it could be fun to experiment a little yourself.
The bunches I was sent were the jupiter and saturn bunches. One a lovely white and cream selection, and the other a pink and purple choice which my daughter loved. I thought they were both great, and definitely styles I would choose myself. I much prefer white roses (they were in my wedding bouquet), so if I was choosing, I’d probably say the first delivery was my favourite, but they were both stunning.
You can get flowers delivered weekly as part of the subscription, but to be honest, the only issue I would have with that is the flowers are such good quality, both of mine still look great a week on. So if I was to join and get a subscription, I would choose less often, like fortnightly or monthly perhaps. This is easy to do online though, which is great. I have been very impressed by the quality of the flowers and how long they lasted! The flowers come straight from the supplier so I guess that explains why they last for a while.
If you are interested in giving Freddie’s Flowers a try, then click this link: www.freddiesflowers.com/c/AAUFF and you’ll get your first two deliveries for half price (£12 each, saving you £24). If you’re like me and love fresh flowers in the house, then I think it is a bit of a bargain.
