I've always find that fresh flowers are the perfect way to add a finishing touch to your home and can take a room from bleak to chic. Not only that, they have an uplifting effect on your mood and can chase away those feelings of anxiety and worry so they're kind of good for your health too! With that in mind, I thought I'd try out Freddie's Flowers and treated myself to a beautiful bouquet sent straight to my door!
I signed up through a friend, which meant my first box was FREE! It also meant I could effectively try before I buy with my first bunch which I'm giving you the opportunity to do too! Use the code: KatherR121 at checkout to get your own free flowers.
Excitedly I ordered my first bunch and specified the date for their arrival to suit me and voila, my seasonal stems were at my doorstep that day!
I was pleasantly surprised that the packaging was all biodegradable and the flowers arrived beautifully fresh and in perfect condition but not only that, there was some arranging instructions which I hadn't anticipated.
I unleashed my inner florist with the step by step guide on how to arrange my flowers which was a lovely touch and contained information on each of the seasonal stems included for that week. I now feel like I have a better knowledge on how to arrange flowers properly and it was nice to do, rather than receiving flowers and plonking them straight into a vase! It's definitely made me look at bouquets differently and seeing what works well together.
Each weeks bouquet is themed with this one being known as Lust for Life; focusing on passion and embracing love in all its forms. I loved the different blooms used for this arrangement and the fact I learnt a little about each of them too. The snap dragons had to be my favourite along with the lilies which certainly scream passion!
As the days went on, the arrangement burst into bloom and revealed its true beauty and really filled my home with cheer. The only flowers that didn't last were the iris' however I knew this was normal as Freddie's Flowers stated they wouldn't last as long as the rest of the blooms. The overall bouquet lasted beautifully for a good two weeks before it was time for them to be composted so I'm really impressed with them, especially as they were free!
Overall I'm really impressed with Freddie's Flowers. I loved the convenience of having flowers delivered to my door. There's flexibility with opting in or out of bouquet deliveries each week so I've chosen to have fortnightly deliveries sent to me. I also love that the flowers are grown to order, making Freddie's flowers a sustainable choice and the bouquets really do look like the pictures featured on the website.
