Features Gifted Item
In case you weren’t aware, it’s my birthday tomorrow. I am currently travelling to Disneyland to celebrate, but last week I received a gorgeous bouquet of flowers from Haute Florist and I wanted to share my thoughts as they were totally stunning. Haute offer a range of stylish bouquets and hat box arrangements on their website, with everything from roses to lilies.
Each bouquet has a full description online, so you know exactly what you are purchasing, and the option to add extras such as a vase, cuddly bear, chocolates, a luxury candle, birthday cake or a selection of wines or champagne. You can also add a personal message to your bouquet or hat box, of up to 200 characters.
I am notoriously awful when it comes to looking after flowers, but Haute have all bases covered, including flower care information both online and with your bouquet itself, ensuring you enjoy your bouquet for as long as possible. Some top tips include removing any leaves sitting below the water line, and trim 2-3cm off the stems every couple of days.
Choosing which bouquet to go for was difficult, as they all looked so nice, but I went for the Spring British Tulips, as they are so fresh and colourful. I love that, if you order before 10pm, your order is eligible for free UK next day delivery. You can also choose your delivery date, if you want the flowers to arrive on a certain day such as a birthday or wedding anniversary.
I was impressed when the bouquet arrived as it was neatly packaged and absolutely beautiful when I removed it from its box. I was sent the large bouquet, along with a standard vase.
The bouquet was so generously sized, it didn’t actually fit in the vase, I had to put half into another one. This was easy to do as the bouquet came in two bunches, which meant they could stay beautifully arranged when displayed – perfect for somebody like me who hasn’t the first clue about flower arranging!
The flowers lasted much better than those I have bought in supermarkets recently, and looked gorgeous day after day. I even used one of the bunches for some blog photography (keep an eye out), so I definitely got a lot of use out of them.
If you are looking for a gift for a special occasion, say it with flowers and take a look at the Haute Florist website for a range of options, at different price points to suit every budget.
I was sent the Spring British Tulips Large Bouquet and Standard Vase, however all words and images are my own.
