Review – A bouquet from 123 Flowers
Today a bouquet arrived for me, delivered by 123 Flowers, an online florist that offers UK wide next day delivery. I’ve been having a bit of a tough week with both me and the baby having a cold, so it was a really nice pick me up. Personally, fresh flowers really brighten up my day and if I could, I’d always have some fresh flowers in the vase next to me as I work as well as some on the dinner table. The advantage of buying from a florist is that you get a high quality bouquet that’s been picked, cut and stored well – maximizing the lifespan of the flower.
They have an excellent range of flowers with prices starting around the £20 mark and I was pretty impressed to find out you can order up to 7pm for free delivery, or 9pm for delivery next day.
They contain “chrysanthemums and germinis with alstroemeria, carnations, and pistacia” to make a lovely delicate, elegant, pink and white display. They were delivered extremely securely in a large upright box which was covered in a floral design as well so even the packaging was attractive! They come with a free pop up vase, but you can add a glass vase and/or teddy for a little extra. I use my own vases personally as I have quite a lot, but as a gift it’s always nice to know your recipient can unpack them straight into a vase. The stems came in what I can only describe as a “flower nappy” (perhaps I’ve spent too much time with the baby…) which kept the stems moist during transport without any risk of spilling water. Very efficient! Flower food and a care guide was also provided.
I’m very pleased with this bouquet and would be quite happy to order from 123 Flowers in the future. This will be ideal for my mum’s birthday in November!
Note: I was provided with this bouquet of flowers free of charge, delivered by 123 Flowers. I was not financially compensated in any way. This has not affected my opinion.
