*I was sent this bunch of flowers for review purposes, however, all opinions are my own as always.
I rarely get the chance to enjoy fresh blooms as I’m rather frugal with my hard-earned pennies so they tend to be a treat that’s strictly for special occasions. Freddie’s Flowers offered to send me a bunch of flowers to cheer up the gloomy November days and I happily accepted.
Here’s a little bit about Freddie’s Flowers:
Freddie Garland is the name behind the flowers (yes, that is his real surname). He was brought up by florist parents and is now on a mission to add ‘a little bit of zen joy to homes across the country by delivering gloriously fresh flowers’.
For £22 a week, you can have a box of beautiful fresh flowers delivered straight to your door. I found the website is a little bit lacking in practical details (subscription options, location etc) but they have a beautifully designed, informative blog and the images are a work of art!
I’ll be honest, I felt a bit spoilt when a huge box of flowers arrived at the office, much to the curiosity of my colleagues. When I say a huge box, I’m not kidding; it was massive!
A few hours later, I opened it at home to discover an abundance of luxurious long-stemmed white roses, delicate lisianthus and eucalyptus. The lemony waxflower that was supposed to be inside had been replaced with extra roses which was initially disappointing as waxflowers give off a beautiful, citrusy smell.
However, Freddies Flowers did pop a note in the parcel to explain that frankly, the stems weren’t good enough to send out their customers and I was impressed that they had such good quality control.
It’s also worth noting that Freddie’s Flowers has some of the freshest, funkiest branding that I’ve seen in a long time. I have a ‘thing’ for fonts and liked the handwritten style of the packaging and informative leaflets provided.
I’ve had these flowers for more than two weeks and they’re still going strong. Although £22 a week is slightly outside of my modest budget, they’d make a beautiful gift/treat for yourself or a loved one and the quality has exceeded any other bunch of flowers that I’ve had before.
