When it comes to brightening up my room, I like to treat myself to a new bouquet of flowers.
I don’t have a favourite flower, but I really love dusty pink tulips and deep red roses.
I see a bouquet of flowers as a treat once in a while – my boyfriend sends me them on occasion and I sometimes pick a bunch at my local market, but not all that often.
As they’re not practical for me to go out and buy, Freddie’s Flowers provides the ideal solution for a bouquet delivery each week.
Freddie’s Flowers are an online flower delivery service with a difference, delivering beautiful fresh flowers to homes across the UK. Each and every floral bouquet is cut fresh and packed to order to reduce the risk of waste – a huge problem for many florists.
Each week, the owner of Freddie’s Flowers, Freddie Garland, chooses beautiful flowers that look great together and that can last ages. Freddie puts together unusual combinations of flowers and foliage to create a luxury yet affordable bouquet, sent straight to your address and accompanied with an easy to follow flower guide, detailing the best vase to use, how to arrange the flowers and a little bio about each flower.
Each Freddie’s Flowers bouquet comes in a large branded cardboard box, which is guaranteed to always be delivered to a safe place. Inside the box, you receive a note on each flower and the best way to arrange them to create a beautiful display. I love how personal the subscription box is, and full of personality with quirky little graphics and helpful little tips.
The flowers are often delivered ‘in bud’, which means slightly closed. This ensures that the flower will last for a long time, and you have the pleasure of watching the beautifully fresh cut flowers unfurl over the space of a few days! The flowers are also delivered out of water (aka dry) so on arrival, pop them into some water with their plant food so they can start looking a bit more lively.
I was sent a stunning bouquet of Oriental lollies, brassica, snapdragons and lacy greenbell to ensemble. The guide was simple and fun to follow, and I love the finished look. It’s not a bouquet I would have bought if I saw it out, but I’m really glad it’s introduced me to new types of flowers.
Freddie’s Flowers subscription service costs £22 a week, and whilst it’s a great price for a bunch of beautiful flowers and the engaging activity that comes with it, it’s personally not something I could afford to have every single week. The subscription service however is super flexible, so you’re able to set holidays and breaks in your delivery schedule.
The flowers are beautifully fresh and of good quality, and the bouquet lasted a good week on display in my room. If you love receiving flowers to decorate your house with then Freddie’s Flowers is the perfect flower subscription service for you.
If you fancy receiving a bouquet yourself, follow this link and we’ll both get a free box – who doesn’t love a nice surprise?
P.s.: I took these photos with my new 45mm lens – I’m so impressed with the quality of the photos! I’m excited to start using the lens regularly 🙂
