So a little while ago, I was very lucky to receive* some flowers from the lovely people at Freddie’s Flowers. Freddie’s Flowers are Â a flower subscription service who deliver flowers weekly to your door for Â£20 a go. I love a good subscription service, and I love flowers, so this was win win for me! I couldn’t wait for my flowers to arrive!
So this was what was delivered…
Yes, it was an epically large box, and I loved the simpleness of the packaging. I of course, eagerly opened the box to be greeted by this inside…
A continuation of the external packaging, some info about getting a free box, as well as some tips for making sure my flowers would look their best. The flowers themselves were wrapped in brown paper and tied with a piece of twine. Also enclosed was a leaflet that you can see here:
Clearly full of information about the flowers I had received, I was really grateful. Whilst I love flowers, I am not very green fingered and am totally clueless of many of the names of flowers apart from the obvious ones. The leaflet was really helpful and in-depth, talking about what to do to the flowers to help them to last, and how best to display them. Here are a couple of close-up snaps of my beautiful flowers…
So I was obviously excited to receive the flowers and they were really pretty once they arrived. However, I felt I had to bring them back to life a little bit because of the time it took from leaving the distribution centre to getting into my hands. Obviously Freddie’s Flowers does as much they can to make this a short a time as possible but they can’t determine how long the flowers will be at your house before you manage to get them into a vase and water.
Also, the leaflet recommends which vase to use to best display your flowers. The vase recommended for this particular bunch was one I didn’t have. Whilst I wish I could have used the correct vase, I was happy enough to use one I had already rather than go out and buy a new one. I feel the flowers I had received generally lasted a good amount of time, especially considering I didn’t give them the best start!
Something a bit different…
They were pretty, colourful, and a bit more ‘exotic’ than the usual supermarket flowers I usually pick up when doing my food shop. Whilst Â£20 is quite a bit more than I would usually spend on flowers, I definitely feel that the service, quality of flowers, allowance for postage and with the expertise from FF’s thrown in, it is definitely worth it if you want a floral treat each week.
They also have a really gorgeous and helpful website which has even more tips, advice and videos for having the most beautiful flowers in your home. You can check it out here. Be sure to also follow them across their social media too, as they often have great offers! They’re onÂ Facebook,Â InstagramÂ andÂ Twitter.
So would you opt for this service? Are you a fan of flowers? Let me know in the comments below!
Until next time…
* I received these flowers for free to review for you guys. However, all opinions are my own and I would never share a service I didn’t love myself!
