pink mini roses to review

It doesn't happen that often (or indeed ever) that a man other than my hubby sends me gorgeous flowers in the post. But on Friday last that's exactly what did happen to me. Fancy that! OK, so I knew they were coming; I had agreed to do a review for the flower delivery company serenataflowers.com. So calm those romantic, and intrigued hearts my dear reader.

****************
First off this company has promised me £30 worth of flowers for my readers (who live in mainland GB) and as my 6th blog anniversary is in 3 weeks I couldn't turn that down! I have other personal giveaways lined up too - it's time to say thank you to all who read, comment and keep me motivated to write xxx

But anyway back to my own good fortune.... My flowers arrived by courier, a lady courier who smiled a special smile handing over this huge box. The box is bigger than this photo suggests, imagine I was on my knees when I took this. Sorry for unprofessionalism but I was aching to rip that sellotape off :)

Opening the box I was really surprised at the quality of the packaging, tailor made for my product. It hadn't moved an inch in transit and believe me - that is rare.

Ohhh look at it! Two mini rose plants in a gorgeous reusable metal trough. I am not joking, I was a giddy little girl when I saw this and the moss on top of the soil makes all the difference.

They even sent a sweet little card...

After some nice sunlight and a good drink they really perked up even more.

I couldn't recommend their service and my particular product highly enough. Everything about it from packaging to each leaf and bud was/is in perfect condition. It looks even better now it's a few days on and I desperately hope I can keep these babies alive for a while.



More on how you can win £30 worth of flowers or a plant from me later in the week!! Stay tuned ;)

Love and Hugs

    1. You bet! I find it really upsetting when a gift comes in the post and it has been treated roughly, even when it says 'fragile' on it xxx

  5. I am addicted to your blog - and your 'musings' and of course your reviews and allotment posts. I so admire your fortitude and it's great to see how well you have been lately - and what a perfect 'pick me up' to be selected to review such great products - and brilliant that they deliver to the mainland where I live.

    It is rare to find a company that really do deliver plants/flowers in tip top condition. So often presents for a loved one living a long way away, fall 'short' of their description and photos of the product - I'll not name a big company that has frequently been a disappointment - so it is wonderful to find one that comes personally recommended. Thanks for sharing
